Trane Enhances ProSpace VRF Systems Portfolio with New Technologies

Product upgrades deliver greater energy efficiency, scalability and design flexibility
to the ductless market

Davidson, N.C., Sept. 12, 2017 — Trane®, a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, unveils new product enhancements to the ProSpace™ Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) portfolio. Trane applied innovative technologies to deliver even more design flexibility and reliability than ever before. With enhanced energy efficiency, more scalability and simplified installation, ProSpace VRF solutions can now be used in a wider variety of building applications.

“The advanced portfolio of our ProSpace VRF systems provides our customers with one of the most comprehensive equipment and control offerings in the industry,” said Matt Barga, portfolio leader, ductless, Trane. “Trane has the people and expertise to partner with contractors and engineers to design flexible, efficient and customized ductless solutions. Whatever the building type or capacity requirements, Trane VRF systems offer precise temperature control and outstanding energy efficiency.”

Updates to the ProSpace VRF portfolio include:

  • ProSpace VRF Low-Ambient Outdoor Unit provides a low cost method of heating and cooling buildings for a variety of applications. It is designed for easy installation, startup and service, and is available in 6-24 tons with 100 percent heating and cooling capacity down to -13 degrees Fahrenheit and -25 degrees Celsius. The outdoor unit also features an intelligent defrost system, lowering energy and operational costs by reducing compressor run time and implementing demand defrosts.
  • ProSpace VRF Mode Control Unit (MCU) connects the VRF outdoor unit to the VRF indoor units to provide high-efficiency, simultaneous heating and cooling. The MCU is light weight with a smaller mechanical footprint that does not require a dedicated mechanical room — reducing first time installation costs. Auto-commission capabilities verify proper temperature readings in up to 64 units in less than an hour, reducing the time required during startup.
  • ProSpace Circular Cassette indoor units have a unique 360-degree Circular Airwave design to eliminate inconsistent temperatures, air-flow patterns and down drafts in a single space. In addition to increasing occupant comfort, the new aesthetic design further enhances the building space.
  • ProSpace Hybrid VRF Univent System combines the benefits of VRF technology with the proven reliability of a Trane unit ventilator to deliver comfort, simultaneous heating and cooling, and precise temperature control. The system uses outdoor air for efficient humidity control and improved indoor air quality (IAQ). With individual zone control the temperature can be adjusted in individual spaces for occupant comfort. Facility managers can also turn off airflow to unoccupied areas to increase energy efficiency.
