Novel 4-pipe R290 heat pump
At Chillventa 2022, SKADEC recently presented its innovative 4-pipe heat pump with natural refrigerant R290.
The intensive development work for the system, which can heat and cool at the same time, was successfully completed in time for the start of the trade fair. Numerous visitors had the fully reversible heat pump explained to them in detail by the SKADEC trade fair team. The discussion partners were impressed by the possibility of defrosting on the hot water plate. Unanimous opinion: A solution that brings numerous simplifications for the running operation and that one or the other will soon be offered.
Like all SKADEC heat pumps, the 4-pipe heat pump is optimised for heating operation. The advantage here is that, in contrast to “reversible chillers”, these systems have a considerably better performance and efficiency in heating operation.
The new, unique heat pump also meets the highest requirements in the area of sustainability. Thus, SKADEC also relies on the use of the refrigerant R290 here in order to guarantee customers a future-proof investment. The refrigerant is not affected by current or future F-gas regulations, occurs naturally in large quantities and is a cost-effective choice
