Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air Conditioners Australia (MHIAA) hosted a bespoke CO2 training program this week in partnership with the Superior Training Centre.

Aimed at elevating industry expertise in CO2 refrigerant, the program was developed in partnership with AIRAH.

During the full day training event, participants were equipped with skills essential for navigating the intricacies of modern refrigeration systems.

Participants were provided with a profound understanding of the principles, applications, and best practices for CO2 refrigeration systems in a blend of theoretical and hands-

MHIAA used its first hand experience with its own product, the Air-to-Water heat pump, Q-ton, which uses patented compressor technology and CO2 gas as a refrigerant to offer a reliable and efficient hot water solution for a range of commercial applications.

During the full day session, attendees were provided with an overview of the current Q-ton line-up, its commercial applications and current features and benefits.

Over the last 10 years, Q-ton has made a significant impact on commercial projects providing sanitary hot water to locations including but not limited to hotels, distilleries, hospitals, restaurants, and aged care facilities.

Q-ton delivers outstanding performance and environmental benefits to varied applications and is exceptionally energy efficient ensuring large reductions in both power consumption and carbon emissions. Q-ton is also able to maintain full capacity down to -7°C made possible by the rotary scroll compressor with gas injection.

Managing director for MHIAA, Mr. Yuji Ito, said the training is a further example of the company’s commitment to the community and delivering world class technology and training.

“At Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, we are extremely honoured to be collaborating with Superior Training Centre to develop this bespoke training course for our attendees. With the ever-changing demand and rise of CO2 within the HVAC market we are delighted to be leading the charge in bringing world class engineering and knowledge to participants and educating them on this market shift.” Mr. Yuji Ito said.

“The CO2 training program delivered here in Innovation Park has been a resounding success for both MHIAA and Superior Training Centre. The Training program exceeded all expectations, and we were able to deliver this program to more participants than we initially expected within our training facilities.”

“We look forward to many more opportunities to develop these training programs in partnership with Superior Training Centre and providing the HVAC market with leading education programs to meet the ever-changing needs and demands within the market.”
