Hybrid VRF – The Advantage of Water

Friday 19th of June 2020
As BDT and Mitsubishi Electric grow into the new era of sustainability and environmental awareness, one thing has become very clear; systems comprising of water will play a large part in the transference of heat in the commercial HVAC market globally in the coming years.

Hybrid VRF (HVRF) bridges the gap between VRF / VRV solutions and heat recovery chiller plant, offering an alternative to common hydronic systems while still retaining the inherent benefits associated to the water-based options.

The HVAC market has been using water as a refrigeration and heating medium for many years, with chilled water being a safe, reliable refrigerant with a number of beneficial characteristics. Chillers, hot water heat pumps and 4 or even 6 pipe hydronic solutions have been utilised in large commercial buildings for many decades.

Simultaneous heating and cooling with full heat recovery

Heat recovery chiller systems are considered the crème-de-la-crème of HVAC solutions, incorporating the inherent efficiencies only possible through heat recovery with the comfort and security of water as the medium being circulated into occupied spaces. However, these have been a largely uneconomical option for small to medium scale applications.

The economic hydronic heat recovery solution

The Hybrid VRF (HVRF) product category bridges the gap between VRF / VRV solutions and heat recovery chiller plant, offering an alternative to common hydronic systems while still retaining the inherent benefits associated to the water-based options.

Hybrid VRF places itself in the market as an economic hydronic heat recovery solution which can be applied from high-end residential homes and the small commercial market right through to a large scale modular solution.

All the benefits of VRF with significantly lower global warming potential

With the adoption of global initiatives to reduce greenhouse gases and local legislative requirements with regards to occupant safety, HVRF provides design engineers and mechanical contractors the mitigation of risk associated with circulating refrigerants into occupied spaces. Furthermore it also reduces the potential global warming impact the larger refrigerant volume imparts; offering a saving on associated costs.

Hybrid VRF is the new VRF standard in New Zealand for both large and small applications

In the New Zealand market alone, BDT have seen a huge uptake of Hybrid VRF in the market. With over 5MW of heating capacity ordered to date across 42 projects Hybrid VRF applications are growing.

The largest Hybrid VRF project in the New Zealand market currently in construction incorporates 512kW cooling and 575kW of heating across 11 HVRF systems and is due for completion in FY21. This scale of project is a prime example of situations where a hydronic solution could have been applied however the HVRF alterative offered ease of construction, cost savings, modularity and redundancy reduction in the case of a mechanical failure.

Of course on the other hand, smaller systems can offer the benefits of hydronic architecture to projects that may be of a scale in which it is not economic to outlay the capital cost associated to a 4 pipe solution.

One such case is PGG Wrightsons Seeds wherein the developer Ngai Tahu was seeking to design a water-based system for their new building in Lincoln. The prerequisite was for a hydronic, water-based design for occupant comfort and safety reasons. In this instance, Hybrid VRF was the nominated solution to meet the hydronic requirements while offering the installation advantages of a modular VRF system.

HVRF key benefits

Minimise the need for leak detection systems

In commercial buildings, additional leak detection systems specific to air conditioning are often installed to safeguard occupants due to increasing safety regulations. This affects hotels in particular, where air conditioners are installed in the room space and occupant safety is critical.

A leak detection system is designed to trigger an alarm if refrigerant was to leak into the room space and initiate an evacuation of the area to try and prevent harm to the occupants. These systems can be expensive and add to the cost of design, build and maintenance.

Flexible design and modularity allow for a manageable phased installation

The small footprint and modular design means building owners can now take advantage of a manageable phased installation.

Regulated phase down of CO2 emissions

GWP is a measure of the global warming potential as compared to CO2 which has a unitary GWP of 1. R32 refrigerant is zero ozone depleting (ODP)and has a GWP 66% less than R410A. For example R410A will hold 2,088 times more heat when released in the upper atmosphere than the equivalent amount of CO2 would.

R32 refrigerant is being adopted by Mitsubishi Electric as an important step in the process towards the ultimate goal of a zero ODP, zero GWP, efficient, safe, and non-toxic refrigerant.

New City Multi R32 Hybrid VRF Delivers a System with a GWP 66% Less Than Existing R410A VRF Solutions.

Thursday 28th of May 2020
With the pressure on R410A refrigerant increasing, Mitsubishi Electric’s commitment to reducing the environmental impact of air conditioning has seen the introduction of New Zealand’s first VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow) solution that has adopted R32 refrigerant.

R32 Hybrid VRF is the world’s only low GWP 2-pipe hydronic heat recovery system

Mitsubishi Electric has long been a leader in the world of air conditioning and the world’s first R32 Hybrid VRF Product Range again puts the company at the forefront of the industry.

Hybrid VRF utilises low GWP refrigerant R32, providing a real solution that delivers high operational efficiency whilst minimising the Global Warming Potential of the refrigerants used within these systems.

Having already introduced R32 refrigerant across its residential M-Series and commercial P-Series Split System Ranges, it was only a matter of time that Mitsubishi Electric tackled the VRF / VRV market with a solution that also adopted a low GWP refrigerant like R32.

The Mitsubishi Electric R32 VRF Solution is an evolution of Mitsubishi Electric’s Hybrid VRF System. First introduced in 2014, this unique 2-Pipe Hybrid VRF System combines VRF and chiller technologies using water throughout the majority of the pipework to efficiently transfer simultaneous heating and cooling to different rooms.

Water instead of refrigerant is at the heart of the indoor units

By using water as the heat transfer medium for the majority of the air conditioning system, Hybrid VRF reduces the overall amount of refrigerant in the system. Furthermore, with only water connecting the branch box to the indoor units, Hybrid VRF minimises the need for expensive leak detection leading to significant reductions in on-going maintenance costs in the controlled space that would be needed to comply with AS/NZS 5149 (1-4) 2016.

All the benefits of VRF with significantly lower Global Warming Potential

The 2-Pipe Hybrid VRF System offers the same comfort levels normally associated with 4-pipe fan coil systems. In addition, consultants and end-users will appreciate the same design flexibility, operational efficiency and advanced control that Mitsubishi Electric traditional VRF is renowned for.

In short, the addition of R32 to the Hybrid VRF Range brings all of the benefits of VRF air conditioning in R32 format to deliver a system with a significantly lower Global Warming Potential (GWP) than existing solutions. In fact, the shift from R410A to R32 refrigerant realises a massive 66% reduction in Global Warming Potential.

The complete solution for today’s modern buildings

Over the last 5 years, Hybrid VRF applications have already enjoyed significant growth in New Zealand. These systems have been successfully incorporated in a variety of designs ranging from offices, hotels, retirement villages, education facilities, medical centres and much more.

Combat the rising costs of R410A refrigerant

With the phase-down of HFC gasses, particularly effecting R410A from next year, the introduction of the new R32 Hybrid VRF Range now provides the obvious answer for those customers looking for a future-proof heating and cooling solution that delivers advanced efficiency with improved corporate social responsibility and minimal environmental impact.

R32 Hybrid VRF is the new VRF standard

R32 Hybrid VRF is the new era of VRF in the market. Mitsubishi Electric has strived to design a system which not only meets the legislative requirements being imposed on the market today but also meets the future requirements that our market will have to adhere to.

The demand for high energy efficiencies, low Global Warming Potential and improved corporate social responsibility is increasing. As a result, regardless whether operating on a global, national or regional basis, all businesses are being forced to look at their own buildings and how their decisions on capital plant will impact them over the lifespan of the product. As such, R410A systems are becoming less viable with the cost of refrigerant increasing, with R410A cost per kilogram climbing rapidly based on the high GWP and the ETS Tax imposed.

The future-proof solution to meet changing environmental demands and corporate responsibility

As business owners, design engineers, installers and suppliers of HVAC systems in New Zealand, it is our duty to provide the developers and building owners a robust future-proof solution to best suit their building and occupants needs. It is also imperative we observe occupant safety and ensure our decisions will not have a lasting impact on our environment for the future.

BDT and Mitsubishi Electric are dedicated to leading the market with innovative products and initiatives which ensure our social corporate responsibilities are upheld; protecting ourselves, our stakeholders and the public.
