Nominal cooling capacity : 3-16 kW

Nominal heating capacity : 4-15 kW

The new reversible AquaSnap PLUS air-to-water heat pumps/chillers with built-in inverter technology were designed for residential and light commercial applications. They offer excellent energy efficiency values, exceptionally quiet operation and meet the most stringent operating temperature demands.

  • Monobloc inverter
  • Compact, reliable and efficient
  • More than a Heat Pump

  • 4 single-phase models
  • 2 three-phase models
  • Operation in cooling mode with an outdoor temperature of 0°C to 46°C
  • Operation in heating mode with an outdoor temperature of -20°C to 35°C

General description

  • A vast operating range, both in heating and cooling mode, offering great performance across a broad range of temperatures
  • Twin Rotary DC Inverter compressors with pulse amplitude modulation (PAM) and pulse wave modulation (PWM) for increased reliability, reduced energy consumption and operation without vibrations, whatever the operating conditions
  • Variable speed fans with a patented innovative blade shape, ensuring better distribution of air at exceptionally low sound levels
  • Pre-configured or customizable water laws, for stable power levels which correspond to the losses
  • The option to connect and integrate the unit into existing heat sources or into an auxiliary heating source (approach with a single or dual energy source), which allows for increased savings and optimal comfort, no matter the weather conditions
  • Inlet and outlet connections to the three-way valve, to enable connection to a domestic hot water buffer tank, increase the flexibility of use, regardless of the application
  • A water outlet temperature of up to 60 °C for heating and domestic hot water in residential applications
  • Plug and play control for intrinsic maintenance and servicing safety
  • For enhanced safety, an incoming alarm signal can force the unit to shut down, and is compatible with external safety devices or control systems
  • Outgoing signal making it possible to control the operation of a customer’s accelerator pump or additional pump to increase the versatility of the installation

Advanced technology

  • Electronic system management: several sensors placed in key positions within the refrigerant circuit detect the operating status of the system
  • The electronic expansion valve is an electronic dual-flow expansion device, which optimizes the volume of refrigerant fluid present in the circuit and overheating, preventing the fluid from returning to the compressor
  • The air management system, which comprises the axial flow fan, the orifice and the air discharge grille, guarantees minimized sound levels
  • The new coil has a blue hydrophilic coating which allows water to migrate more easily to the exchanger using gravity

Advanced performances

  • Extremely high energy efficiency, both in heating mode and in cooling mode, thereby guaranteeing significant energy savings
  • Year-round comfort – the advanced technology used provides users with optimized levels of comfort, in terms of water temperature regulation and the low sound level
  • Can operate at low ambient temperatures in cooling mode (from outdoor temperatures of 0 °C to 46 °C)
  • Positive Defrost software. This advanced control logic allows energy extraction from outdoor air in order to melt frost on the coil using fans while compressor is OFF

Environmental care

  • Non-ozone depleting R410A refrigerant, very dense, so a smaller amount is required than other fluids
  • Highly efficient, it enables a high energy efficiency ratio (EER) to be obtained
  • Components are free from hazardous substances
  • Packaging offers increased protection during transport and handling, and is 100% recyclable

Fast and simple installation and service

  • Easy access to all internal components: simply undo three screws to remove the entire front panel, in order to access all of the components
  • The advanced circuit design and choice of components has enabled a compact unit to be created, with an exceptionally small footprint that is easy to transport even through narrow doors
  • The reduced weight of the unit, and the presence of a handle on the panels, ensure it is easy to transport
  • 3 bar safety valve fitted as standard
  • Internal two- or three-litre expansion vessel
  • Protection against high refrigerant temperatures
  • Water flow controller to ensure that the circuits contain enough water to operate correctly
  • Several options for the electrical cable outlets: prepunched holes in the casing panels enable the cable to be fed via the side, front, or rear
  • Gas type male couplings
  • The built-in hydraulic module reduces the space required and simplifies installation. Simply connect up all the connections: electrical, water supply, and return pipes
  • The coupling between the condensate draining pipe and the unit has an airtight rubber gasket
  • The mounting brackets have a specially designed shape to ensure that the unit is safely and securely attached to its base

DC inverter twin-rotary compressor

  • Maximum energy-efficiency with high capacity available at peak conditions and optimized efficiency at low and mid compressor speeds
  • Compressor frequency is increased continuously up to the maximum level
  • Reduced vibration and noise, even at very low operating speeds
  • Twin-rotary cylinders, low vibrations and low load to the shaft ensure highest compressor reliability and a long trouble-free operating life

Superior reliability

  • Third-party testing and certification - all performances are certified by Eurovent and unit safety is certified by IMQ
  • All the units undergo tests at various stages of their manufacture to ensure tightness of the circuits, electrical conformity, and to check the water and refrigerant pressure
  • At the end of production, all the unit’s operating parameters are thoroughly tested
  • Corrosion resistance casing
  • Accelerated ageing test on the critical components and on the fully-assembled units, simulating thousands of hours of continuous operation
  • Impact testing on the packaging, to ensure that the units are suitably protected against accidental impacts
  • Numerous, comprehensive test on-site

Economical operation

  • The exceptionally high energy efficiency is the result of a long selection and optimization process
  • The use of ambient air as the main energy source in residential heating applications considerably reduces energy consumption and CO2 emissions
  • Sleep mode, with reduced compressor speed at night, provides a low operating sound level, and significant reductions in energy consumption
  • An easily adjustable and economic silent mode reduces the compressor speed
  • The R-410A refrigerant is easier to use than other fluids
