LG Electronics, the South Korean electronics giant, will soon launch the world’s first variable water flow control system for VRF systems, the company’s HVAC division announced on Monday.
Scheduled to be launched at the Mostra Convegno Expocomfort (MCE) 2012, the LG variable water flow control system is highly regarded due to is energy efficiency and environmentally friendly benefits.
“LG’s AE Company has positioned itself as a premier water system solutions provider,” said Kam-gyu Lee, senior vice president of the System Air Conditioning Business Unit of LG’s Air Conditioning and Energy Solution Company. “The technology we are able to bring to the water industry will not only improve lives but also reduce waste. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
In contrast to constant water flow systems, the variable water flow control system cuts down a facility’s energy consumption by up to 71% said Lee.
He added that this was due to the reduction in energy required to operate the circulation pump.
The system also uses a smart water valve control function that helps prevent excess water usage, thereby enabling significant savings.
The technology has also been applied commercially, with the Bouygues head office in France the first to implement it. LG have also applied the variable water flow control system to its acclaimed Multi-V Water II system.
