Panasonic expands coldroom component range

CO2 Condensing Unit + Designer crop
Panasonic’s latest CO₂ condensing unit can be used in coldrooms and retail refrigeration.

Panasonic is expanding its range of environmentally friendly CO₂ condensing units for commercial applications with the introduction of its medium-sized unit with a cooling capacity of 7.5kW (medium temperature).

The condensing units utilise CO₂ natural refrigerant and offers low noise levels at 35.5 dB(A) for inconspicuous cooling, suitable for when displaying chilled and frozen goods in customer areas.

The units can be installed in a variety of applications, such as for showcases in supermarkets, convenience stores and petrol stations, as well as in coldrooms to keep food fresh and safe such as in hotels, schools and hospitals.

The latest addition joins the existing larger 16kW and smaller 4kW units to provide an alternative for applications requiring an in-between. Like its larger counterpart, the medium-sized unit also has a heat recovery connecting port.

The new capacity is compatible with Panasonic’s CO₂ Refrigeration Designer – the online calculator that provides further support for engineers, installers, technicians, and design offices. This user-friendly tool is designed to simplify calculations to ensure the best solutions and results are achieved and eliminate calculation errors.

The latest software updates introduce the new 4HP (MT) unit in the calculation and contains EU Declaration of Conformity documents. It should also facilitate the design process and improve user-friendliness. In addition, the cooling capacity range for extended outdoor ambient conditions and the evaporating temperature conditions have been enlarged.

The online tool is being continually improved for optimum usage and is accessible through Panasonic’s PRO Club.
