Announced by Daikin as a sustainability champion, the ground-breaking 5ht generation heat recovery system is set to greatly reduce the CO2 footprint of buildings.
Daikin seeks to deliver a comfortable, healthy indoor climate, keeping the total CO2 equivalent emissions as low as possible throughout the entire building lifecycle. The new VRV 5 Heat Recovery unit represents a significant milestone on this journey, with the introduction of the lower GWP refrigerant R-32 for larger commercial buildings, while keeping the VRV flexibility to cater for all types of indoor spaces, even very small areas.
The new VRV 5 Heat Recovery unit represents the future of commercial HVAC-R, making a significant contribution to the decarbonisation of commercial buildings thanks to:
A major reduction of up to 71% in global warming impact by the adoption R-32, with a 68% lower GWP, and lower refrigerant charge compared to R-410A systems.
The highly efficient and comfortable 3-pipe heat recovery system, which recovers and recirculates heat among spaces with different thermal needs, and allows simultaneous heating and cooling operation, whatever the building’s orientation.
The integration of ventilation units to further contribute to an improved Indoor Air Quality and a healthier indoor environment.
A completely redesigned Branch Selector (BS) box that incorporates Daikin’s unique Shîrudo technology allowing installation in spaces down to 7m2 without complicated calculations or additional field-supplied refrigerant control measures.
Daikin’s Web Xpress design software combined with the Shîrudo technology allow quick and easy system selection and design to suit any space.
With the widest capacity range on the market, up to a maximum of 75.8 kW, Daikin’s VRV 5 covers the needs of medium to large sized buildings with a single system.
A comprehensive range of specially designed R-32 VRV indoor units offers maximum flexibility for all room configurations. This includes Daikin’s signature ceiling mounted and suspended cassettes, slim, medium External Static Pressure (ESP), high ESP concealed ceiling units and wall mounted units. A choice of capacities ranging from 1.1 kw to 31.5 kw easily covers all possible room sizes.
Visitors to The International HVAC-R Climatizacion y Refrigeracion Exhibition in Spain (16-18th of November), where the VRV 5 Heat Recovery solution has been selected to appear in the Galleria D’Innovacion, will be able to catch a first glimpse of the new development in HVAC-R for commercial buildings.
