Q-ton

Q-ton

The air-to-water heat pump which boasts high efficiency and low carbon emissions, ideal for commercial applications.

How it works

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.

How it works

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 Benefits

It generates hot water at up to 90°C without the requirement for an electric immersion heater.

Its Monobloc unit with CO2 refrigerant has Zero Ozone Depletion Potential (Zero ODP) and a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 1.0, which is the lowest achievable.

With an industry leading CoP (Coefficient of Performance) of 4.3, it is the ideal system for serving hot water requirements in commercial buildings like hotels, care homes and leisure centres.

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

  • Sanitary hot water (65-90°C) even in cold temperatures
  • Natural refrigerant (CO²)
  • No output capacity reduction from -7°C
  • Up to 6 times more efficient than a gas boiler
  • Up to 50% less carbon emissions than a gas boiler
  • 5,000 to 100,000 L/day configurations
  • Easy-to-use touchscreen controller

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.

The ECA scheme 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, for further information download the ECA brochure here.
