LG Electronics Australia has announced the local availability of its latest Multi V Water 5 (ARWM) commercial air solution.

The unit offers efficient operation and convenient installation with various configurations available to suit a range of commercial buildings and create optimum comfort for work environments.

One of the key features, Geothermal Applications, promises greater temperature control less affected by external conditions, by using underground heat sources such as soil, ground water, lakes, and rivers to produce renewable energy.

“At LG, we are passionate about providing Australian businesses with innovative heating and cooling technology that deliver flexibility and customised solutions to support their ever-changing needs,” LG Electronics Australia sales director of air solution, Andrew Barron said.

“Our new Multi V Water 5 is a reliable commercial air solution for a variety of buildings and spaces. Built with durable, underground HDPE piping and next-generation LG compressor, the Multi V Water 5 reduces costs associated with unnecessary repairs and improves energy efficiency, while LG Dual Sensing technology delivers innovative temperature control to create a consistently comfortable environment in shared commercial spaces.”

The solution offers 8 ~ 20HP (22.4 ~ 56kW) in a single unit and can scale to 60HP (168kW) with three units to suit a range of environments from small office spaces to large halls. Its compact and lightweight design provides the option to double stack the units, freeing up 50% of floor space. The Multi V Water 5 ensures that water pipes are not connected to indoor units to prevent water leakage issues, while a total piping length of up to 300m (500m) provides flexible design and easy installation.

For added convenience, the Multi V Water 5 is equipped with LG Dual Sensing Control technology, which helps the air conditioning unit evaluate climate conditions. The system measures not only temperature but also humidity levels for outdoor and indoor environments to determine parameters that will achieve optimal energy efficiency.

The LG Multi V Water 5 incorporates the company’s fifth generation inverter compressor which provides more efficient and accurate motor speed control when compared to the Multi V Water 4. The new Multi V Water 5 can also remove heat from inverter PCB through its refrigerant-cooling heat sink.

As an optional offering, the LG Multi V Water 5 can be equipped with LG applied Water Flow Control to optimise water flow by up to 71% in comparison to conventional models with constant water flow. By using this feature for partial cooling or heating load conditions, uses can reduce the circulation pump Energy Flow level.
