Inaba Releases PD Series Lineset Covering for PACs:
Inaba Denko, a leading manufacturer of installation materials for air conditioners, has released the PD series lineset covering for packaged air conditioners (PACs). This round-shaped ducting system is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and is suitable for elevated installations that lift up from the surface of the wall, ceiling, or floor. It can replace conventional racking (jacketing) installation where refrigerant piping is covered with metal plate by installers at each site. PD Duct offers advantages in its multi-purpose utility not only as lineset covering for air conditioners but also for use in refrigeration and freezer storage equipment

1. Japan Becoming a Technology Galapagos:
Technologies and services have continued to evolve amid unique circumstances in modern-day Japan, and in some cases these technologies and services have diverged from global standards. There are in fact a number of Japanese technologies and services that have fallen into the Galapagos syndrome. Companies have mobilized their world-leading technological standards to develop products filled with functions unmatched by foreign manufacturers, but in many cases they fail to take a significant slice of the world market.

2. New EU Energy Regulations for Fan/Motor Units:
The second stage of the Energy-related Products (ErP) Directive in Europe extends the original scope to include complete fan and motor assemblies and not just the motor. It applies to all assemblies from 125 W to 500 kW and includes the motor, the power train (e.g. direct coupled or belt drive) and the impeller.
If the assembly does not meet the specified efficiency, it cannot be awarded the Conformite Europeenne (CE) mark and therefore cannot be legally sold inside the EU. It has been estimated that half the fan/motor units currently on the market will not meet the ErP 2015 standard.

3. Gree Develops PV Centrifugal Chiller:
Gree's photovoltaic direct-driven inverter centrifugal chiller utilizes solar energy and has cooling capacity ranging from 250 RT to 1,000 RT. Gree possesses the intellectual property rights and patents for the photovoltaic air conditioning system. The chiller enjoys outstanding energy efficiency in applications. The Zhuhai Gree office building is one example. The project covers an area of 15,000 m2 and uses one 400-kW photovoltaic direct-driven inverter centrifugal chiller. The chiller operates eight hours per day from each April to October. Power output from solar energy reaches 340 kW, saving an annual total of 571,200 kWh in electricity.
