Walton manufacturing VRF technology’s Central AC
NBS REPORT –
The local electronics giant Walton initiated a project of manufacturing the VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow) technology based commercial air conditioners in Bangladesh.
According to Walton authorities, process of the country’s first-ever VRF AC manufacturing plant is going on in full-swing at Walton Hi-Tech Industries Limited (WHIL) in Chandra, Gazipur.
The local brand expanded its existing AC production lines at WHIL by installing advanced tools and machineries. Walton has already commenced the trial production of huge power-efficient VRF AC. The commercial production will be started very soon.
Locally made single module VRF AC were showcased as this year’s upcoming product at Walton Pavilion in this year’s Dhaka International Trade Fair.
Engineers of Walton AC Department said, VRF technology is the latest air conditioning system of the 4th generation. This refrigerant is conditioned by a single outdoor condensing unit, and is circulated within the building to multiple indoor units. This system can heat and cool different zones or rooms within a building at the same time. Installation of a VRF system is easier and requires lesser space. The comfort cooling and dual sensing system in Walton VRF ACs will deliver cool or heat air flow as per the needs.
Engineer Ishaque Rony, chief operating officer of Walton AC, said that the annual sales volume of VRF AC in the Bangladesh market is more than Tk 100 crores. The overseas brand is meeting the entire local demand at now and the country has to spent huge amount of foreign currencies to meet the import bills, he pointed out.
With the aim of reducing the present import-dependency, Walton initiated of manufacturing world-class VRF AC in Bangladesh, he said adding, they will manufacture single modular VRF AC of 17 to 25 ton capacity.
Rony informed that globally recognized environment-friendly R410a refrigerant will be used in the compressors of their VRF ACs. In addition, the power consumption would be saved up to 40 percent.
The automatic start-up system in Walton VRF ACs is resulted in delivering air flow of the previous settings after the power cut and on.
