Panasonic’s new R290 air-to-water reversible heat pumps

Panasonic Heating & Cooling Solutions is launching its new sustainable and efficient ECOi-W Aqua-G Blue air to water reversible heat pumps, designed for large commercial, industrial or multi dwelling residential applications.

By using R290, a natural refrigerant with a very low Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 3, this heat pump has a lower environmental impact when released into the atmosphere compared to other refrigerants. 

This new range boasts a high seasonal performance value with a maximum SEER 4.4 and SCOP 3.9, and has an energy efficiency rating of A++. Its cooling mode application sees a water outlet temperature of -15 °C, ensuring optimal operation temperature for process equipment in factories. It also provides an ideal solution for heating, cooling and domestic hot water, reaching 70 °C leaving water temperature from 0 °C outside air temperature.

For a more reliable and efficient solution, the new range uses scroll compressor technology. This allows the ECOi-W Aqua-G Blue range to provide a balance of efficiency and silent operation, with a notably low minimum sound power level of only 79.9 dB(A), and a minimum pressure level of just 51.9 dB(A). An optional compressor box is available to provide an additional level of noise reduction.

Panasonic offers a range of capacities available with the R290 refrigerant and scroll compressor technology, with four sizes from 50 to 80 kW. In addition, the range can boost capacity up to 480 (kW) by connecting up to six units in cascade. The units are fully customisable with various configuration options and will be available to market in Autumn 2023.

The range is compatible with Panasonic’s plug and play Cascade Control, which allows connection to Panasonic’s ECOi-W Cloud for remote access in real time, to optimise the service and maintenance work.

Panasonic does not compromise on product quality, safety or durability in order to provide the ultimate comfort. Special safety measurements are equipped for R290 refrigerant, including the addition of a ventilation system, air/refrigerant separator and a non-flammable sealed electrical box.
