VRV is a commercially applied heating and cooling system that distributes refrigerant rather than water, to multiple fan coil units serving the conditioned spaces. The natural attributes of a VRV system position it as an alternative to a chiller system.
Daikin’s current VRV system is the 7th iteration of the first VRV launched in 1982. Completely re-engineered to realize opportunities for VRV in taller / larger buildings, it utilizes the latest advances in refrigeration and air-conditioning technology. The totally new Daikin Inverter compressor system delivers improved efficiency and performance, while ensuring satisfaction of demands throughout connected zones across the complete operation cycle. With a choice of Heat Pump 460V/3Ph/60Hz or 208-230V/3Ph/60Hz, the system configurations power up to 30-tons in capacity from a single piping network. The system also allows up to 62 indoor fan coil units, a 200% connection index, ventilation options and integrated controls, with BMS options and piping limitations never before seen with a DX system. With these attributes, VRV naturally positions itself wherever the attributes of a traditional chilled water systems are desired
Commercial sites can range in size from a few hundred to several thousand square feet. That’s why Daikin offers the new VRVIII air cooled system with advanced features to meet practically any challenge. Completely re-engineered to realize opportunities for VRV in taller, larger buildings, it utilizes the latest advances in refrigeration and air-conditioning technology.
These systems are designed for business applications where a single VRV outdoor unit can serve up to 58 independent zones. VRV offers superior flexibility and energy efficiency, in an easy to install packages. Choose from the VRVIII-S, VRVIII Heat Pump or the VRVIII Heat Recovery System
It is widely used worldwide in applications such as: Health care, Hotels and conference facilities, Offices, Residential multi-family, Restaurants, Retail and Schools.
