Hitachi upgrades Utopia Centrifugal range

Hitachi Europe has expended its Utopia Centrifugal range of air conditioners with three models with DC inverter-driven scroll compressors. The new units have cooling capacities from 7.2 to 25.5 kW and EERs of up to 3.4. They are up to 25% more efficient in typical UK operating conditions compared to the previous fixed-speed models.

The two smaller units are 15% lighter, owing to a reduction in height and the introduction of horizontal compressors.

All models have flexible inlet and outlet airflow configurations, enabling installations to be tailored to customers’ individual needs. They can be partnered with the full range of Hitachi System Free indoor units and controls. Single, twin, triple and quad configurations are possible.
