The new ECOi-W chiller from Schwank partners Panasonic is a multifaceted solution for heating and cooling. The heating and cooling system capacities lie in a large range between 20 kW and 210 kW. The units can also be used under extreme temperatures. Heating operation is possible as low as -17 °C and cooling operation is possible to +50 °C outside temperature. The typical flow temperature for heating is +55 °C.
As the chillers are individually configured according to customer requirements, they can be used in a wide range of applications. The chillers can be optimised for the required application and, for example, can be adapted to specified outside temperatures and desired flow temperatures. This flexible approach ensures that the ECOi-W series is always an efficient solution for hotels, offices and industrial applications.
With a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) of up to 3.85 and a SCOP (Seasonal Coefficient of Performance) of up to 3.32, Panasonic chillers are extremely cost effective heating and cooling systems. In addition, the special design of the cooling coils enables a particularly efficient defrosting process. This results in a COP (Coefficient of Performance) up to 15 % higher than comparable units.
A wide range of communication interfaces, a user-friendly operating display and the possibility of cloud connection round off the capabilities of these powerful units. Thanks to their compact design, the chillers can be easily set up and have flexible positioning possibilities – even when space is limited.

Schwank, the world leader in industrial heating, cooling and ventilation celebrated its 90th anniversary
In its 90 years of existence, Schwank has transformed itself into a global leader in industrial heating and expert of ventilation and cooling solutions. The company is now focused on energy transformation so hydrogen and electric heating are becoming its primary focus. As of this year, it offers the first 100% hydrogen heater and is pioneer of being a major force in the transition to renewable energie.
Breakthrough: Climate-neutral Heating with Hydrogen Operated Schwank Tube Heaters
For years, the manufacturers of infrared heaters have been advertising the modernity and future viability of their technology. Now the industry, and above all the Schwank company, has set a groundbreaking milestone with the development of its first 100% hydrogen-compatible tube heating system.
Energy Efficiency is Vital for Reaching Net Zero
A post on the EURACTIV website has included a statement by Paula Pinho from the European Commission’s Energy Directorate, which read as follows: “We believe that, first and foremost, we need to continue to apply the energy efficiency first principle, ensuring that really we make the most out of our limited resources.”
