Panasonic UK - Refrigerant Leak Detection System

Refrigerant Leak Detection - Pump Down System - Leakage Sensor - ECOi

Panasonic Pump Down System

Improving security, detecting refrigerant leaks early!

Panasonic has developed an innovative solution to detect refrigerant leaks that offer complete assurance and protection for end users, building occupiers and the environment. Panasonic’s innovative Pump Down Systems contributes to a building qualifying for additional BREEAM points and achieve compliance with current EN378 2008 standard, where refrigeration concentration levels exceed practical safety limits of 0,44 kg/m³.

No additional communication network is needed to connect the sensors to Pump Down System

This innovative pump down system can be connected in two ways:

  • With sensor leakage
  • Without sensor leakage, using only the innovative algorithm

Option 1: With leak detector: the safest solution for small rooms

Thanks to the exclusive software of Panasonic ECOi the sensors communicate with Pump Down System directly through P-Link connection. It is a very cost effective solution and incredibly easy installation. The leak detector is connected through PAW-EXCT connector directly to the indoor unit and the pump down system is directly connected to the main outdoor unit. The pump down system will activate when a leak is detected in the rooms. Refrigerant collection will be immediate. It offers the best of safety for the end users, building occupiers and the environment. The refrigerant will be collected in the outdoor units and for bigger systems in an optional receiver tank.

Option 2: Unique innovative algorithm to determine refrigerant leakage

Panasonic has developed a new innovative algorithm which is able to detect leakage of R410A based on the following conditions:

  • High pressure
  • Low pressure
  • Discharge temperature

This solution is ideal for hotels, offices and public buildings where the safety of end users / building occupiers is a must! This solution is extremely cost effective as it does not need an expensive leakage sensor.

Basic pump down function:

  • Detect the leakage
  • Activate pump down process
  • Collect the gas on the tank
  • Close the valves to isolate the gas

Key points:

  • Comply with legislation
  • Protect personnel
  • Protect the environment
  • Save on operating costs
