After being shortlisted as a Good Design Selection finalist in the prestigious 2017 Good Design Awards, the Climate Wizard CW-P15 by Seeley International was announced the winner of the Product Design (Commercial and Industrial) Award.
The CW-P15, which was released on the market earlier this year, impressed the judging panel who praised its energy saving, design, and fit-for-purpose housing characteristics.
In response to the award announcement, Seeley International Founder and Executive Chairman, Mr Frank Seeley AM FAICD, stated that the CW-P15 has leveraged on the multi-award winning Climate Wizard pedigree to achieve a revolutionary indirect evaporative air conditioner that uses a hyper-efficient counter-flow heat exchanger, to produce 100% fresh, cool, outside air with no added moisture.
“(The) CW-P15 overcomes the shortcomings experienced with traditional evaporative air conditioning, and offers comfort conditions that are equivalent to or better than, conventional refrigerated air conditioning–using up to 80% less energy for cooling than refrigerated systems performing the same function.
“Our development of (the) CW-P15 allows a broader range of commercial and industrial customers to enjoy the unrivalled benefits and innovative technology of Climate Wizard. In addition to improving the cooling performance of refrigerated equipment, it can also extend the life of existing refrigerated systems–whether it is a retrofit or new installation.”
Seeley International’s commitment to ongoing product improvement and innovation extends beyond enhanced functionality, to include a number of clever external design benefits, such as a UV-proof lightweight polymer corrosion-resistant casing to perfectly complement a range of roof or building designs.
In addition to offering flexible configurations across commercial and industrial applications, the CW-P15 takes full advantage of the environmentally friendly R718 (water) to achieve high quality cooling at high electrical efficiencies, with no ozone depleting gases or chemicals employed in its operation.
