Baxi launches Auriga heat pumps to maximise efficiency

Baxi, a heating and hot water solutions supplier, has launched its new Auriga mid-temperature monobloc commercial heat pump series, compatible with cascade and hybrid controllers.

Baxi’s existing commercial heat pump portfolio now includes new Auriga medium-temperature monobloc heat pumps, suitable cascade and hybrid controllers, and a pre-contract design advisory service. Baxi, a heating and hot water solutions supplier, has announced the release of its new Auriga mid-temperature monobloc commercial heat pump series, which is compatible with cascade and hybrid controllers.

Baxi extended commercial heat pump offering, which includes design help from its technical solutions team, will be supplemented later this year with a high-temperature R290 (propane) heat pump range. Baxi’s innovative air-to-water Auriga Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) series can reach temperatures of up to 60°C while lowering global warming potential (GWP) thanks to the R32 refrigerant.

Available in single outputs of 20 kw, 26 kW, 33 kW, and 40 kW, with cascade options of up to 320 kW, the new Auriga series offers design flexibility for commercial buildings of all sizes. As part of the new Auriga range, Baxi has launched a series of Auriga-compatible cascade and hybrid controls to maximize system efficiency. 

The new Baxi Commercial HVAC (CHVAC) Manager provides modular and flexible control of hybrid heating systems, including the ability to cascade up to eight heat generators (either eight ASHPs or a mix of ASHPs and boilers). The new Auriga indoor controller is intended for basic ASHP cascade system control. The new Baxi VM-T controller may be used as an expansion to control more secondary zones. The CHVAC Manager also allows you to connect to a BMS via Modbus or 0-10V for complete remote monitoring and system optimisation.

James Matthews, Director of Building Solutions at Baxi, said, “Our new Baxi Auriga ASHP has been designed with efficiency, occupant comfort, and design flexibility in mind. Its excellent seasonal coefficient of performance (SCOP) of up to 4.83 at W35 is combined with quiet operation and sound power of less than 65 dBA.” “To help tackle the decarbonisation challenge and ensure optimal whole-life benefits from ASHPs, we have evolved our commercial customer support service as well as our heat pump range.” “At the outset, our technical sales team works collaboratively with our customers to understand their project goals, scoping out potential solutions and feasibility studies.”

James Matthews, add, “Following this initial assessment, our newly formed technical solutions team supports our customers with system design, system sizing, and simulation testing to assess solution suitability against the project requirements,” “By partnering with customers at the early stages, we can not only supply the required ASHP system components, but the precise, validated advice, backed with predicted energy and carbon savings and capital expenditure modeling, that will help make the switch to ASHPs more seamless.”

The Baxi novel Auriga series was designed, constructed, and tested in the company’s dedicated commercial heat pump plant in Vilafranca, Spain, and includes a thorough Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) to assist clients in determining the embodied carbon of their projects. When commissioned by Baxi or an authorised expert, the Auriga comes with a 5-year parts and labour guarantee. The Auriga is presently available for quotation, with delivery scheduled for July.

The Auriga ASHP series offers high seasonal efficiency, with a SCOP from 3.33 to 4.83. It features an inverter-driven scroll compressor, allowing modulation down to 13 percent. The system operates at 65˂ dBA, with full remote monitoring and system optimization capabilities. It also offers cascade and hybrid system compatibility, complementing the Auriga ASHP series.
