Midea Building Technologies, one of the world’s largest chiller manufacturers, has launched the “V8” Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) series in the UAE to outline a new blueprint for the development of intelligent solutions offering the best in energy efficiency and comfort in the HVAC industry.

The new series will be exclusively represented by Taqeef, a leading AC and cooling solutions provider, in the UAE.

The V8 series encompasses the key features of all VRF technologies developed and has advanced and improved features that merge the requirements of customer needs with the global drive towards a sustainable future. The newly launched series offers significant reductions in carbon footprint and demonstrates energy efficiency improvements.

As a result, it allows for achieving a reduction in energy consumption and providing a superior and optimal comfortable environment for occupants in terms of temperature, humidity, airflow, and indoor air quality.

“Cooling accounts for 10 percent of the global electricity use and nearly 4 percent of the annual greenhouse gas emissions. In a climate like ours that relies on cooling to function, we have a duty to find more efficient ways to cool our spaces and places. Innovations in HVAC technology, such as the Midea V8 VRF series, are driving sustainability through more conscious cooling, while also contributing towards The UAE Net-Zero by 2050 strategic initiative.”

The series is integrated with a smart algorithm that uses real-time technology and dictates the optimal temperature and precise refrigerant flow and the air volume of the indoor units. The operating data of the system is analyzed through Artificial intelligence. For instance, it can sense clogged heat exchangers and refrigerant attenuation, providing timely notification to the maintenance team, and ensuring active energy conservation during the whole life cycle of the VRF system.

The V8 Series VRF addresses many other industry challenges through multiple industry-first technologies such as ShieldBox, SuperSense and HyperLink. The ShieldBox is an enclosed electric control box with IP55 protection that safeguards against any unexpected electronic control failure due to harsh climatic reasons. The high energy-efficient cooling of the electronic parts is guaranteed by a micro-channel refrigerant cooling technology along with cooling fans.
