Providing total climate control in an apartment building or in collective housing presents a particular challenge because a large number of rooms simultaneously need heating or cooling. Daikin Altherma Flex Type is designed with this challenge in mind. Each outdoor unit can be linked to up to ten indoor units, with each indoor unit being individually controlled, to make sure the perfect temperature is maintained at all times. In addition, by making optimal use of VRV®, cascade technology and heat pump technologies, the system efficiently generates hot water in both heating and cooling modes.

6 Efficient climate control for apartment buildings and collective housing Energy efficient heat pump technolgy Modular system Daikin Altherma Flex Type is today’s answer to current and future issues of increasing energy costs and unacceptable high environmental impact associated with conventional heating systems. With Daikin Altherma Flex Type, 2/3 of the generated heat comes from the air, which is recognised as a renewable energy source that is free of charge! Daikin Altherma Flex Type achieves a typical seasonal COP of 3 in the moderate Western and central European climate. Compared to an oil...

8 Two Daikin technologies combined Indoor unit: Daikin Altherma cascade technology Space heating Hot water heating Daikin Altherma Flex Type uses two refrigerant cycles, R-410A and R-134a, to heat the water circuit. The purpose of a cascade system is to attain or work with pressures and temperatures which cannot be reached by using only one refrigerant cycle. The aim is to get the best characteristics out of the two active cycles. The R-410A refrigerant circuit has excellent characteristics with respect to low evaporating temperatures, while the R-134a circuit has excellent characteristics for...

OUTDOOR UNIT: DAIKIN VRV® TECHNOLOGY Modular flexibility Daikin Altherma Flex Type makes use of Daikin's renowned VRV8 technology. A combination of Proportional Integral Derivative controlled compressors and electronic expansion valves in the outdoor unit continuously adjusts the circulating refrigerant volume in response to load variations in the connected indoor units. The VRV8 technology allows multiple indoor units to be connected to a single outdoor unit and the indoor units to operate independently of each other, assuring total flexibility. Each apartment retains control of its own heating,...

11 More benefits of advanced design Modular design The modular design enables flexible and easy installation - this reduces the costs and makes maintenance easier. Small footprint The indoor units can be stacked or set adjacent to each other. This ensures the units to fit into available small spaces so that they do not impinge on the living area. Silent operation Advanced materials and designs allow all the moving parts to operate as silent as possible, thus ensuring that the climate control system is barely audible. Individual control The latest integrated control technologies allow the temperature...
