Condair has extended its dehumidifi er range to include more desiccant models, wall and ceiling-mounted systems, units that control temperature as well as humidity, and swimming pool units. The Condair DA desiccant dehumidifi er

range now includes capacities from 0.6 to 182 litres per hour from its standard models, with the option for customised units to meet larger drying requirements. Features include the ability to operate down to -30°C and consistently maintain an air humidity as low 1%RH. Units can incorporate on-board touch screen controllers and BMS connectivity, with Modbus as standard. AC or EC fans are available. Condair’s new wall-mounted condensing dehumidifi er range off ers attractive in-room units with a sleek design. Alternatively, wall- mounted systems can be remotely located in a room adjacent to the area being dehumidifi ed. Humid air is circulated to the dehumidifi er and dry air fed back to the room via ducting through the wall. New ceiling-mounted models enable installers to either integrate the unit in a suspended ceiling system or simply fi x it overhead to avoid taking up fl oor space.

Mitsubishi Electric

Mitsubishi Electric has launched its new MSZ-EF R32 Zen system. Combining energy effi ciency with a sophisticated, streamlined design, the new unit adds to

the already extensive M Series range, with the entire range using R32. Created to complement modern interiors with a compact and stylish design, the unit comes in three colour variations, black, silver and white. The range also includes Wi-Fi capabilities, giving the user the fl exibility to control and monitor the unit using a smartphone, tablet or PC via the MELCloud app.

Thanks to the incorporation of Replace Technology, the MSZ-EF range can be used to replace and upgrade older systems utilising existing pipework and wiring, benefi tting the user with lower installation costs and times.

The MSZ-EF range comes in 2.5, 3.5 and 5kW sizes, with impressively low power consumption and an industry-leading low operating noise level of 19 dB(A), recognised by the Noise Abatement Society and awarded the prestigious Quiet Mark.


Toshiba has released a new generation of its air conditioning system design software, which for the fi rst time enables contractors to carry out both split and VRF system selections and automated EN378 F-Gas compliance checks.

DesignAIRS was originally developed by Toshiba in Europe, and the company recently adopted the system as its global air conditioning design platform, developing and rolling out a completely updated version of the software. While the fi rst generation of DesignAIRS covered only VRF systems, the latest version enables a range of technologies to be added to designs, including split systems, heat recovery, hot water modules and DX-based air handling units, dramatically expanding its application. In addition to automatically evaluating compliance with mandatory refrigerant safety standards, the new programme simulates true system capacity for designs. This assures clients and end users that a proposed solution will successfully meet both statutory and project performance requirements.


Refco has two diff erent types of Schrader valve tools in its product range: the access control valve and the valve core replacing tool. These products off er many useful features. The idea behind

the access control valve is to depress the Schrader valve at the exact moment the connection is tightly screwed. Refco achieves this with a spindle that is retracted in unmounted state and can be unscrewed in mounted state. During development, attention was focused on achieving a compact design that permits working even in confi ned spaces. The product has been designed and tested for all HFC and CFC gases, in a pressure range from -1 to 60 bar, making it suitable for everything from vacuums to high pressures. Unique mechanical stops minimise application errors and make the product easy to handle. The stops prevent the Schrader valve from being overpressurised, which could result in damage and leakage. Also, no refrigerant fl ows when the spindle is turned to the top position, so the contents of the hose cannot escape while the connection is being changed The product comes in a lightweight brass construction, fi nished off in an attractive design.
