MHI Thermal Systems Receives the JSRAE Technology Award for its e-3D Scroll Compressor

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Thermal Systems, Ltd. (MHI Thermal Systems), a part of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group, received the 51st (2023) Technology Award (Note1) from the Japan Society of Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (JSRAE) for its e-3D scroll compressor, a large-capacity, high-efficiency scroll compressor equipped with the e-3D scroll featuring a proprietary, advanced 3D compression structure. The award was presented in recognition of how the development of e-3D scroll provides a substantial improvement in efficiency while maintaining the same large capacity. The e-3D scroll compressor recognised with this award is a more advanced version of the 3D scroll compressor, the large-capacity 3D compression structure originally developed in 2005. The shape of the scroll has been changed from a stepped style used in the previous model to a smooth slope shape, further increasing the efficiency of the 3D compression structure. This change in shape significantly reduces the leakage of refrigerant…

MHI Group and Applus+ IDIADA to Develop Testing and Verification System for Highly Automated Vehicles

Three MHI Group companies have concluded an agreement with Applus+ IDIADA (IDIADA), a Spain-based multinational company that performs engineering, testing and homologation for the automotive industry, on joint development of a testing and verification system for highly automated vehicles. IDIADA has an abundant track record in vehicle development, testing and homologation for automakers in Europe, and is contributing to the formulation of international standards in these areas. Today, development of automated driving systems is vigorously underway worldwide, and in the years ahead, dramatic capability improvements and increasing adoption of such systems are anticipated. To ensure their safe and secure operation, it must be verified that sensors and systems will function normally under the diverse natural environments that highly automated vehicles will encounter; moreover, needs are expected to increase in the coming years for testing under all possible weather conditions. In response, three MHI Group companies and IDIADA will jointly develop…

Production has commenced for MHI Thermal Systems’ New KXZ3 Series

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Thermal Systems, Ltd. has started mass production of the ‘KXZ3 Series’ of building-use multi-split air-conditioners for its worldwide markets. The newly added lineup, which adopts the R32 refrigerant, is available in three models: 22.4, 28.0 and 33.5kW. By combining individual units, a maximum of 100.05kW can be achieved to accommodate a wide range of needs. The new series will be launched in the European market this summer, to be followed by successive launches in Australia, New Zealand and Turkey. The KXZ3 Series helps mitigate environmental impacts through the adoption of the R32 refrigerant having a Global Warming Potential (Note 1) of 675, which is roughly one-third the level of the R410A refrigerant (GWP 2090) used in earlier models. The new series also improves energy savings by nearly 18% in Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (Note2), an indicator of an air-conditioner’s energy efficiency. Its efficiency enhancement is owed to…
