What is Q-ton?
Q-ton is an air-to-water heat pump which utilises patented compressor technology and CO2 gas as a refrigerant to offer a reliable and efficiency hot water solution for a range of commercial applications.
How does Q-ton work?
The Q-ton heat pump uses a coil of cold refrigerant that absorbs ‘free’ heat from the outside air, and a 2-stage compressor that puts the refrigerant under high pressure in order to raise its temperature. An on-board heat exchanger uses heat from the refrigerant to generate hot water from 65°C to 90°C which is then stored for sanitary use.
Systems can be set up to meet specific requirements, from one 30kW Q-ton unit providing 6,000 litres of hot water a day, to 16 heat pump units in a modular configuration of 480kW, connected to substantial hot water storage tanks. A touch screen controller makes the system simple to operate, while the user-friendly graphic display enables you to easily monitor hot water production and availability.
Q-ton offers a wide range of benefits over traditional heating solutions such as gas boilers and electric line heaters with regards to both efficiency, Co2 emissions, ease of use, storage capabilities plus many more.
What are the commercial applications?
The Q-ton high efficiency heat pumper offers a reliable hot water solution for a range of commercial applications. The Q-ton is best suited to applications that use between 3,000 and 20,000 litres a day.
The Q-ton is manufactured in our state of the art facility in Japan which a ISO 9001 approved factory developed specifically for the manufacture of high quality and high performance air conditioners and heat pumps.
The Q-ton heat pump has been used in high profile projects all over the world including in hospitals, hotels, lodges, gyms and universities. We’ve included some of these projects below.
