Toshiba ceiling units improve performance and reduce sound

Toshiba Air Conditioning’s Series 7 ceiling-mounted air-conditioning units are designed to be easy to fit and have exceptionally low noise characteristics. This completely redesigned range comes in a range of capacities, including a 6 hp unit. The front grille has a modernised appearance, and the chassis is larger to accommodate a larger and more efficient heat exchanger.

The new design delivers 38% larger air volumes while operating with lower sound levels, down 9%. This performance is due to a redesigned fan that optimises the passage and delivery of air. Toshiba’s research team discovered that turbulence in the throat of fan housings can reduce the throw of air leaving units, reducing cooling and heating effectiveness in the conditioned space. The new range has a redesigned fan housing with a device to prevent turbulence.

A self-cleaning function maintains performance and reduces the need for servicing.

Evaporators are coated with a resin that prevents dirt and mould sticking to heat-exchange fins. Gravity-fed condensation water flows over the coils to wash away dirt. A drying cycle then prevents mould forming.

An optional drain pump kit uses specially impregnated anti-bacterial glass to further ensure system hygiene.
