Mitsubishi Electric has launched a range of wall-mounted air-conditioning units using R32 , a refrigerant with a low global-warming potential (GWP). The M Series MSZ-LN range is the first in the company’s line-up to use R32. Mitsubishi will be launching further R32 air-conditioning solutions during the year.

Commercial director Donald Daw says, ‘This is a major product evolution that will show the market exactly how air conditioning using R32 can perform. Our engineers have put their heart and soul into developing a superb range of indoor units that offers better efficiencies and more features.

In March 2014, the European Parliament passes the 2014 EU F-Gas Regulation legislation with the key objective of reducing F-gas emissions by 79% between 2015 and 2020. The overall intention is to cut the availability of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) with a high GWP.

‘R32 units have been available in Japan for over two years now, and we have taken that knowledge and experience and refined it into this stylish and efficient offering — including our first-ever red unit.’

The range offers four sizes with cooling capacities from 2.5 to 6.1 kW. The indoor units are available in ruby red, onyx black, pearl white and natural white colours. A matching, colour co-ordinated room controller is also available.

Double vanes on the indoor unit operate independently to distribute air evenly throughout the room with noise levels as low as 19 dB(A).

A Plasma Quad Plus filter can filter out even microscopic particles, and the dual-barrier coating on the heat exchanger, fan and air duct prevents dust and grease accumulation.

The line-up also includes Mitsubishi Electric’s Replace technology which can utilise existing pipework, making it ideal for office and retail refurbishments.
