Mitsubishi Electric has entered the air handling unit market with the launch its new Lossnay Kanzen range.
The company claims the new range provides a complete cooling solution, along with matched coils and outdoor heat pumps, on-board controls and heat recovery, offered as an integral package.
Perry Jackson, Mitsubishi Electric’s ventilation general manager, said: “We have developed five sizes that allow us to target around 42% of the market by size of airflow, with systems that provide added extras already built-in.
“The majority of the existing manufacturers tend to specialise in either standard AHUs or bespoke units but we have identified a real opportunity for a complete package that bridges the gap between standard and bespoke solutions.”
The five models available bring together the company’s Lossnay heat recovery technology with the latest advanced Mr Slim heat pumps to offer customers hassle-free installation and commissioning. Mitsubishi Electric believes that this makes Lossnay Kanzen one of the most efficient and effective packaged air handling units on the market.
Available as the LK-500, LK-750, LK-1000, LK-1250 and LK-1500 models, the range offers between 3,500 and 15,000 cubic metres of air volume per hour, or between 0.97 and 4.17 m3 air movement per second.
The units offer CoPs (Coefficient of Performance) of between 4.88 and 5.69 and EERs (Energy Efficiency Rating) of between 5.45 and 6.15 to deliver energy efficiency previously unavailable in a standardised packaged format.
This new development compliments the existing product ranges and delivers high quality, high performing systems that offer total heat recovery as standard. The different Mitsubishi Electric technologies can also be programmed to work together to deliver even greater efficiency for the building.
According to official BSRIA figures for 2012, the AHU market accounted for around 17,000 units.
