NEW R32 VRF AIR CONDITIONING
PROVIDES COMPLETE SOLUTION
Mitsubishi Electric has launched new R32 VRF
(Variable Refrigerant Flow) air conditioning
systems to o er the UK market the first complete
range of lower Global Warming Potential (GWP)
The R32 City Multi YNW range is available in both
heat recovery and heat pump variants to deliver
lower GWP for large air conditioning systems. For
the first time in the UK, this allows customers to use
one single lower GWP refrigerant across a complete
building or an entire network.
“Under the growing pressure of the F-Gas phase
down regulations, the market is demanding viable
and positive solutions which are future proof for
businesses and last the full lifecycle of the product,”
48 OCTOBER 2019
explains Mark Grayston, Head of the
Product Marketing Department.
At a customer conference this month,
Mitsubishi Electric asked its partners
what the key factors in the adoption of
R32 VRF are and the top three responses were:
1) cost; 2) proven VRF concept; and 3) end user
“Customers are looking for products that meet
both current and future legislation and with the
launch of the UK’s first R32 VRF systems, we are
delighted to be able to o er the market a complete
range of lower GWP solutions,” adds Grayston.
Mitsubishi Electric also announced a warranty
extension at the conference for its top partners
and will now o er 10-year warranties on all air
conditioning equipment installed by its Diamond
Quality Partners (DQPs).
R32 is now the norm for split-type air conditioning
systems o ering a lower GWP (675) than R410A
(2088). Whilst Hybrid VRF has provided a viable R32
solution for larger systems, no standard VRF range
using R32 has been available – until now.
Utilising the innovative and highly e icient City
Multi YNW outdoor unit, this R32 solution o ers
complete design flexibility, high e iciency and low
R32 makes up 50% of the existing R410A
refrigerant already found in many current VRF
systems, is highly energy e icient and is easy to
recycle. A GWP of one third of R410A, plus reduced
overall system refrigerant volumes means lower
refrigerant total and lower global warming impact.
Available to specify from October, the new City
Multi R32 models will be in stock from January
2020, o ering sizes from 22kW to 34kW in both heat
recovery and heat pump variants.
With a range of ducted and 4-way blow ceiling
cassette indoor units available, the systems
provide flexibility of installation for R32 VRF
in many applications. They also work with the
comprehensive range of advanced controllers to
ensure e ective and e icient operation.

ZUMTOBEL HAVE CREATED A STYLISH
INSTALLATION FOR UWE BRISTOL
Zumtobel have created a stylish installation
with maximum performance for the University
of the West of England (UWE Bristol).
Zumtobel Lighting have supplied a highly
e icient new lighting solution that includes a
lighting control system and a central battery
system, for the new Faculty of Business and
Law. Working to a brief that included energy
e iciency, aesthetics and low maintenance.
In an installation carried out by Whitehead
Building Services, Zumtobel have created
a lighting solution similar to that of natural
daylight in all the circulation spaces, with their
PANOS evolution luminaires. The unobtrusive
PANOS evolution disappears into the
architecture, providing powerful and e icient illumination.
SLOTLIGHT infinity are also installed in the circulation spaces creating an
excellent, continuous flow of illumination with no shadows, providing an eye
catching, streamlined strip of uniform light.
LINCOR Direct/Indirect pendant luminaires illuminate the o ice spaces
and mock court suites. With its slim and unobtrusive design, the LINCOR
LED luminaire draws an elegant line through the room, its contemporary
minimalism enhances room axes and architectural concepts.
MELLOW LIGHT V has also been installed in o ice areas providing perfectly
dispersed LED points that deliver well-balanced illumination of the work
space, helping to prevent glare and the so-called ‘cave e ect’.
