Increased Energy Savings
Unique to Mitsubishi Electric, QAHV utilises a twisted and spiral gas cooler. Using twisted pipes as water pipes and running the refrigerant pipes along their grooves helps to increase the heat-conductive area; allowing for better heat transfer and an impressive COP of 3.88*. The continuous spiral groove design accelerates the turbulence effect of water and helps to reduce pressure loss within the heat exchanger, enhancing efficiency. Equipped with the latest inverter scroll compressor, QAHV offers unparalleled efficiency when compared to fixed speed systems.
Superior Heating Performance in Low Temperatures
QAHV is able to provide its full heating capacity of 40kW even at ambient temperatures as low as -3°C. Furthermore, the unit operates to supply 90°C hot water in ambient temperatures as low as -25°C. This superior level of performance is achieved using Mitsubishi Electric’s industry-first Flash Injection Circuit which provides the optimum amount of refrigerant to the system via a compressor through a specially designed injection port, ensuring highly stable operation.
Why is CO2 Refrigerant Used?
QAHV adopts CO2 (R744) as it is an environmentally-friendly, natural refrigerant which has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and has a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 1.
