high efficiency and low carbon emissions

Our Q-ton heat pumps use highly efficient technology to minimise operating costs and carbon emissions.

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

 

The Q-ton Story

The high efficiency Q-ton is an air-to-water heat pump using CO2 gas as a refrigerant, which can be used in a variety of applications for the supply of sanitary hot water. Q-ton has been featured as the world’s first two-stage compressor (combining rotary and scroll technology). It maintains high efficiency and significantly improves performance at cold outside air temperatures.

MHI’s design team launched this innovative unique air source heat pump to allow maximum efficiency, with minimal carbon footprint all controlled from a comprehensive touch screen panel. Currently with the increasing pressure of the use of low GWP (Global Warming Potential) refrigerant, we believe CO2 heat pump is the way forward to comply with future regulations as well as market trends.

Unique Advantages

Some of the unique advantages to using the new-generation, energy-efficient Q-ton heat pump:

Very low operational noise
Using a Q-ton heat pump system substantially reduces running costs and carbon emissions by 40 to 75%. It is suitable for installation in new and existing buildings, and does not require a heating back up.
Enhance Capital Allowance (ECA)
Q-ton is approved for the Enhance Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme, it is open to all UK businesses that pay Corporation Tax or Income Tax, providing they have used equipment on the energy technology list. This means that 100% of the capital investment for the Q-ton installation & transportation costs can be included in the offset against taxable profits in one year. This only covers new products.
User Friendly
LCD panel with light tap operation introduced as the industry’s first. A Large 3.8 inch full dot display and back light function. Regardless of the setting that has been applied, there is always the functionality to manually refill the tank. You can set a schedule such as a weekly operation pattern, day off or a peak-cut timer.
'Free' heat from outdoor air
Q-ton absorbs ‘free’ heat from outdoor air and amplifies it to generate hot water swiftly and efficiently. It generates hot water up to 90°C without the requirement for an additional electric immersion heater.
