Temperzone HWP Horizontal Water Cooled Package Units

Apartment Development at 499 St Kilda Rd Melbourne

Temperzone's High Energy Efficiency and exceptional controllability are our use of Advanced Variable Technologies.

Temperzone have been market leaders in the Water Cooled Package Unit market for more than 40 years. The recent redevelopment of the HWP range of in-ceiling water cooled package units with high efficiency ThermoShell heat exchangers has produced a range of products with high performance, matched with benefits of significantly lower water flow.

Fawkner Residences is an upmarket residential development at 499 St Kilda Rd Melbourne. It's a great example of how the clever design of the HWP heat exchangers produced a significant reduction in total system installation costs.

For the Fawkner Residences project, the consultants chose to use Temperzone Water-Cooled Package Units for each apartment. The initial design was specified using a competitor product.

Temperzone offered the HWP with ThermoShell heat exchangers, as an alternative. The much lower water flow required by the new HWP ThermoShell units had a dramatic impact on the system design and installation cost.

Lower water flow rates enabled the design of the main water riser to change from steel, to copper. This negated the need for expensive offsite pre-fabrication, special lifting apparatus and higher labour costs.

In addition to the reduction of water pipe diameter, the reduced water flow required allowed the use of much smaller pumps and associated wiring and drivers.

Temperzone’s start-of-the-art HWP with ThermoShell units are used extensively in Australia, New Zealand and throughout SE Asia - particularly in large residential or hotel complexes.
