Polaris Technologies has launched a ducted air-conditioning unit based on natural refrigerant propane (R290) in a hydrocarbon blend.

Polaris Technologies, based in Frenchs Forest, New South Wales, has launched a ducted air-conditioning unit based on natural refrigerant propane (R290) in a hydrocarbon blend.

Polaris Technologies, based in the northern Sydney suburb of Frenchs Forest, New South Wales, has launched a ducted air-conditioning unit based on natural refrigerant propane (R290) in a hydrocarbon blend.

The first units – part of the HideAway Series – were delivered to Australia in March. Sales have already begun, and the first installations were made that same month, in Melbourne and Sydney.

The Polaris HideAway series of air conditioners are ducted packaged units that do not require a separate outdoor unit. “This opens new possibilities for designers and architects who can now dispense with unsightly exterior units,” Tony Power from Polaris told this website.

The refrigerant used is engas M60, a special purpose hydrocarbon refrigerant blend specifically designed to replace R410A. Propane is its primary ingredient.

Hidden Heating and Cooling

Sydney-based Polaris Technologies has launched a new series of ducted packaged units that do not require an outdoor unit.

“This opens new possibilities for designers and architects who can now dispense with unsightly exterior units,” says Polaris.

“The Polaris Hide-Away is hidden away in the roof space. This is ideal for retro-fitting healthcare facilities, apartments, aged care, hotels and heritage buildings where external units (and noise) need to be avoided.

“Commercial buildings can now be zoned using independent multiple small systems. This can negate the need for single air-handling unit complex zoning or VRF installations. Condenser air is ducted from outside the building and simply requires two grilles on the building’s façade.”

There are two types of units: 10kW (410mm high) and 3.5kW (300mm high). Both have been designed to fit into small spaces. The condenser air path utilises acoustic flexible duct for low break-out noise.

The Hide-Away uses M60 refrigerant and has an operating temperature range of -15 to 48°C.
