Pure Thermal is excited to announce the launch of PALLADIUM range a true simultaneous heat pump unit.
Simultaneous heat pump systems are innovative HVAC solutions that efficiently provide both heating and cooling while minimizing energy consumption and operational costs. Their ability to recover and reuse waste heat makes them environmentally friendly and suitable for a wide range of building types and applications.
The PALLADIUM range has been designed with R290 natural refrigerant with an ultra-low noise capability.
A true simultaneous heat pump unit capable of operating in 3 modes viz heating only, cooling only and as a 4 pipe unit delivering simultaneous heating and cooling mode.
This range is a perfect balance between the sizing of the aeraulic section, soundproofing of the unit and the combination of top performance and operating limits stretched to the furthest possible point.
Performance range: 50kW to 165kW
Medium temperature heating: +30C to +70C
Medium temperature cooling: -7C to +20C
Application limits: -20C to +38C external temperature when in heating mode
-10C to +45C external temperature when in cooling mode
Modes of operation: heating only, cooling only and Simultaneous 4-Pipe units to provide heating and cooling.
Propane heat pumps operate on the principle of heat transfer and compression. In heating mode, they extract heat from the outdoor air (even in cold temperatures) and transfer it indoors to provide heating. In cooling mode, they reverse the process to remove heat from indoors and release it outside to provide cooling.
Can chillers be replaced by heat pumps? Yes, you heard that right, the true simultaneous nature of this range allows it to replace an existing chiller by providing cooling as well as heating simultaneously.
In facilities like hospitals, hotels, and industries, where the existing chiller has a continuous demand, the palladium range can replace the chiller and simultaneously offer heating without interrupting the power supply.
Pure Thermal’s team can intelligently design the entire system package to operate this unit as a dual source unit.
The unit can operate as a ground source or air-sourced depending upon the higher-grade heat availability, if the external temperature / ambient temperature is higher than the ground temperature, in that case unit can pick up heat from the external temperatures.
Similarly, instead of ground, the unit can be connected to any higher-grade heat e.g.; chilled water return lines, waste heat from cooling towers etc. The unit can intelligently switch between low-grade heat to higher-grade heat based on load availability.
The fluorinated hydrocarbons (“F-gases”) refrigerants, such as R134a or R410A have been in use for a long time now. These are synthetic refrigerants with a very high global warming potential and are harmful to the climate. In most of the applications, these refrigerants are completely banned, this asks for the adoption of natural refrigerants.
The latest PALLADIUM range is completely future-proof, it uses a natural refrigerant R290 with a very low global warming potential of 3 and an Ozone depletion potential (ODP) of 0.
R290 (Propane) refrigerant functions in the same way as other refrigerants like HFO, HFCs that have been in use up to now. The use of natural and “green” refrigerant propane (R290) makes this a climate-friendly heating system.
