Daikin UK - VRV / Heat Recovery
Heat Recovery - Ventilation Solutions - Refrigeration Solutions - Variable Refrigeration Temperature - VRV IV System
Daikin’s worldwide reputation for quality and innovative technology is founded on more than 50 years of experience in the design and manufacture of industry-leading heat pump solutions for a broad range of heating and cooling requirements.
Daikin UK – a wholly owned subsidiary of Daikin Europe NV – has an excellent record of concern for environmental issues and this is evident in all areas of the business, with Daikin often pre-empting environmental legislation at national and international levels.
Daikin UK is a leading supplier with a comprehensive range of heating, cooling, ventilation and refrigeration solutions for commercial, residential, and industrial applications in the public and private sectors. The product portfolio includes highly energy-efficient climate control systems delivering complete solutions for every application.
Standing less than one metre tall on its feet, Daikin’s new compact VRV IV S-series at just 823mm is the lowest profile VRV unit in the market today, making it perfect for tight spots in urban spaces. The low height makes the Mini VRV even easier to comply with urban planning requirements – and at 88kg it is easy to install.
Available in 4hp and 5hp single phase, the lightweight single-fan unit joins the twin-fan 4, 5 and 6hp VRV IV S-series units in single or three-phase.
The range has been extended further with 8, 10 and 12hp units becoming available. All units have front blow, so they can be located on balconies or discreetly hidden behind a parapet, for example. Every unit in the range features VRV IV technology with variable refrigerant temperature control – bringing all the power of VRV to the smallest of spaces.
The Mini VRV connects to standard Daikin VRV fan coil units as well as the stylish Emura and Nexura indoor units and Biddle air curtains.
Designed for pair applications with pipe runs up to 30 metres, the new Seasonal Inverter outdoor unit adds an economically priced option to Daikin’s unique Roundflow cassette range.
Delivering a 360-degree airflow, the Roundflow cassette is available with Daikin’s industry-first self-cleaning decoration panel as an option. A daily auto-cleaning cycle boosts overall efficiency by preventing dust build-up that might otherwise impede airflow though the unit.
The Seasonal Inverter unit comfortably provides cooling or heating when outside temperatures are as low as -5°C and -15°C respectively.
It gives Daikin’s Roundflow cassette range a solution for all needs, joining the Seasonal Classic and Seasonal Smart, which provide higher performance and greater efficiency for larger applications and longer pipe runs. All three models include R22 replacement technology.
Daikin UK breaks new ground by introducing the first R32-based heat pump systems in Europe – giving domestic air conditioning a foretaste of next-generation refrigerants.
R32 is Daikin’s preferred refrigerant to meet next generation legislative and environmental requirements because of its superior energy efficiency and low global warming potential. R32 already makes up 50% of R410A refrigerant, but R32 on its own has a GWP of 675, compared to R410A’s 2,088. While refrigerants with high GWP are targeted for phase downs, R410A’s future is assured until at least 2025, after which its use is expected to be restricted.
The greater energy efficiency of R32 results in a lower refrigerant charge and the potential to manufacture smaller units. As a consequence, it is also easier to re-use and recycle.
Daikin introduced the world’s first R32 domestic air conditioners in Japan in 2012 and has already sold more than 4 million systems in that market.
This year, Daikin UK brings the proven R32 technology to the local market, initially in Split systems, featuring three popular types of wall mounted indoor units – Ururu Sarara, Emura and FTXM High Inverter – all of which offer efficiencies up to A+++ in heating and cooling modes. The full range of R410A products remains available alongside the newer technology. Installation of R32 systems is similar to R410A systems, however slightly different equipment is required. Daikin can advise on training requirements.
