The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2017-08-16T05:25:15Z Climate Wizard-P15 awarded international industry accolade 2017-08-16T05:25:15Z climate-wizard-p15-awarded-international-industry-accolade Hot on the heels of winning a prestigious Good Design Award, the Climate Wizard CW-P15 by Seeley International has achieved yet another major industry accolade after it was announced a winner of the New Product Innovation category in the Australian Business Awards 2017.Seeley International Founder and Executive Chairman, Mr Frank Seeley AM FAICD, said the revolutionary CW-P15 was quickly gaining a reputation as an industry-leading indirect evaporative air conditioner, despite only being officially released to market earlier this year. “The CW-P15 builds on the strong reputation of the multi-award winning Climate Wizard range, and its ability to cool using 100% fresh air. It achieves this with no added moisture by using a hyper-efficient counter-flow heat exchanger and in doing so challenges all of the assumptions that people make when they think of an evaporative cooler,” Mr Seeley said. “The extraordinary CW-P15 transforms the performance of traditional evaporative air conditioning, and a growing number of savvy commercial and industrial consumers are opting to invest and take advantage of the 80% energy savings on offer compared to refrigerated systems performing similar cooling functions,” he said. “CW-P15 offers air conditioning cooling comfort which can achieve up to equivalence, or even superior performance than, conventional refrigerated air conditioning at 80% lower energy costs, and it can actually improve the cooling performance and extend the life of refrigerated systems - whether a retrofit or new installation.” Mr Seeley said this latest award accolade should further strengthen consumer confidence in this benchmark cooling technology. “We realise that some people might not yet fully understand this new technology, because they have previously experienced older technology options. Our challenge to consumers is to put aside old thinking about cooling and experience and enjoy this next-generation technology, because it has the performance to change perceptions forever,” Mr Seeley said. “A broader range of commercial and industrial customers now can experience the unrivalled benefits of the innovative cooling solution that Climate Wizard delivers at far cheaper running costs,” he said. A number of exceptionally clever benefits have been integrated into the design, including a UV-resistant lightweight polymer corrosion-free casing which better blends with existing roofs or building designs. CW-P15 also takes advantage of environmentally friendly refrigerant R-718 (water), to achieve exceptional cooling at exceptionally high electrical efficiencies, with no ozone depleting gases or chemicals employed in its operation. “Even better news is that customers can expect long years of reliable service without the need for any substantial renewal of replacing any of the structural components,” Mr Seeley said. Designed and manufactured using parts made in-house at Seeley International’s South Australian-based manufacturing plant, CW-P15 reflects the Company’s unwavering commitment to quality and innovation, with other key features including: ·         A new compact modular design which allows for easy side-by-side, rooftop installation, ·         Smaller footprint and visually low profile designed to perfectly blend with a rooftop, ·         Enhanced access and handling ensures easier installation, connection, service and maintenance, ·         Integrated lifting points in the design, ensuring simple crane and forklift transport and installation, ·         Direct-mount or frame-mount installation, with the ability to be mounted side-by-side on either side, with all maintainable and serviceable parts accessed by the front or back of the unit, ·         A twin fan design means CW-P15 features separate exhaust and supply channels, ·         The design of CW-P15 allows constant supply through air conditioning systems’ low pressure ducts, ·         New axial propeller fans, with the sickle blade / air-foil design ensuring added efficiency, ·         Integrated air filtration systems, with options for disposable or washable box filters, ·         Use of single phase power, rather than three phase power, ·         Optional MagIQtouch Controller or standard MagIQcool Controllers, allowing users to set temperatures on-site or remotely and ·         New standard filters, with optional washable or disposable pleated panel filters accommodated in the one design.

Based on MHIAA’s world class air conditioning technology, the Avanti™ air conditioning range beautifully complements any household interior and was recently awarded the A’ Design Silver Design Award from Italy, a global indicator of quality and perfection in design. “Air conditioning units are moving away from that standard shape we have known. The Avanti™ range has been designed and developed for the modern home. It is the perfect accessory for all new homes and those wishing to bring elegance and luxury to their living spaces” says interior design expert and MHIAA ambassador, Tara Dennis. The Avanti™ range of air conditioners boast elegant smooth curves and rounded corners to suit any home. As one of the quietest models on the market, it is altogether less intrusive and the perfect addition to any home “Home owners are continually looking for ways to bring style and comfort to their homes. They want high end products that are built to last. With the Avanti™ range, MHIAA is once again pushing the boundaries to bring quality designed products to consumers, a feat now recognised internationally” -Tara Dennis. MHIAA continues to invest in extensive research and development and this has ensured that the Avanti™ range guarantees high values of energy efficiency and low consumptions. Using the R32 refrigerant, Avanti™ requires less energy to achieve the desired temperature and less refrigerant volume to operate. As a reverse cycle unit, the Avanti™ range provides heating and cooling and comes with both a dry and fan mode. The Avanti™ range will continue to provide powerful cooling even when the outside temperature is as high as 46 degrees. MHIAA’s 130 year history of engineering innovation is seen with the Avanti™ range using the same blade technology as jet engines. This enables a large volume of air to be blown with the minimum amount of energy generating an airflow that is uniform and quiet. “With warmer months just around the corner, now is the time for every home owner to take advantage of this technology,” says Tara Dennis. Further to this, the Avanti™ range utilises both the allergen clear and photocatalytic filter to neutralise and purify the air flow. Through these filters any bacteria, mould, pollen or lice that has built up in the unit is quickly eliminated and deodorised to provide consumers with a cleaner air flow. The Avanti™ range also features a silent night function with a dimmable light providing the perfect temperature and ambiance, night and day. This means that even as the evening approaches the unit can remain on for those warmer nights without a bright light in the corner of the room. Users have the option, through this feature, to dim the LED light or turn the light off without having to switch the air conditioner off. MHIAA understands what consumers want and this has influenced the features of the Avanti™ range.  By harnessing Wi-Fi technology, the Avanti™ range allows users to set up and program the air conditioner through their smartphone or tablet outside a normal daily schedule. This option allows consumers to set the desired temperature of the unit before returning home and allows them to check if the unit has been left running should they not be home. MHIAA is bringing consumers a holistic and stylish range that has been internationally recognised for its quality design. The Avanti™ air conditioners are available from August in leading retailers, and air conditioning dealers, and come with a five-year parts and labour warranty.

Seeley International commits to $20m new manufacturing hub creating significant local jobs growth 2017-07-27T06:20:24Z seeley-international-commits-to-20m-new-manufacturing-hub-creating-significant-local-jobs-growth Seeley International continues to ‘buck the trend’ of the Australian manufacturing sector by announcing expansion plans which will see its existing Albury manufacturing plant relocate to a larger $20m purpose-built facility to be constructed at nearby Wodonga. Seeley International founder and Executive Chairman, Frank Seeley AM FAICD, said the exciting move, which is to be part-funded by a grant from the Victorian Premier’s Job and Investment Fund, would establish a state-of-the-art manufacturing hub which will produce a range of innovative products to be sold in Australian and international markets. “As a long-standing employer within the Albury-Wodonga community, Seeley International is pleased that this investment accommodates our expansion needs and positions the Company for significant jobs growth and success in the years ahead – with 64% forecast growth in new local employment opportunities expected to be created in the next 5 years,” Mr Seeley said. “Our local manufacturing facility continues to play a critical role in our overall operations, and as well as continuing to fully manufacture award-winning Braemar heating products, the Climate Wizard metal range and the entire AIRA product range, we have also recently welcomed a dozen new engineers and other team members to the plant,” he said. “One of the biggest challenges we now face is that we have outgrown the existing factory, and with space at a premium it has fast-tracked the need for relocation plans. Establishing a new and larger facility at nearby Wodonga allows us to retain and grow local employee numbers and maintain a strong employer presence within the local community.” In acknowledging the grant contribution of the Victorian government, Mr Seeley said it was critical that all levels of government assist manufacturers to develop new products, and support expansion of production facilities. “Seeley International continues to commit high annual expenditure on research and development of new manufacturing techniques, and to create innovative products that are the most energy efficient, necessitating state-of-the-art facilities to enable this to happen,” Mr Seeley said. “Seeley International is living proof that there is a bright future for the Australian manufacturing industry, and we have been able to compensate for the higher costs within Australia by focusing on innovation, world class technology and high levels of automation, while many others are closing doors or downsizing,” he said. “Seeley International is bucking the trend and is starting to ramp up employment growth at our Albury manufacturing plant which is expected to grow over the coming months,” added Mr Seeley. “As the home of Braemar gas heaters and air-conditioners, our Albury-based plant has established a vertically integrated manufacturing and assembly operation that employs more than 125 people. As well as being a major employer in the region and supporting a number of worthwhile local causes for more than 20 years, we look forward to the area’s economy also reaping the flow-on benefits that will come with our new location and expanded workforce.” Independent testimony of the calibre of Seeley International’s operations is the standout success story at the prestigious 2017 Albury Wodonga Business Awards. Seeley International was announced a winner of both the Excellence in Innovation and Most Outstanding Medium/Large business categories at the awards gala event on Friday, 14th July. While a construction site and plans are yet to be finalised, Seeley International says the new Wodonga manufacturing facility will be operational early in 2019.

In every year that has followed, that same unopened bottle of scotch – which shares the same name as the award-winning Braemar air conditioning ranges – is auctioned at the Gala Dinner as part of Seeley International’s VIP Conference, with delegates never holding back when it comes to lively and generous bidding for a worthy cause. Frank said proceeds enable distribution of funds to a designated children’s charity near, or in, the host country of the international conference as well as a worthy Australian-based cause. “I remember having a good chuckle when I first became aware of this particular $10 bottle of Braemar scotch, but it got me thinking that it created an opportunity to achieve a much higher purpose, and it was used as the prize at an auction, raising about $2,500 that year, which we matched dollar for dollar from our charitable fund,” Frank says. “The winning bidder re-gifted the unopened bottle at the conference the following year, and we doubled the amount raised. In the many years that have followed, that bottle has become part of Seeley International’s folklore and has, with the amount raised this year, now generated more than $2m for children,” he says. “The OM Indonesia Project is working to break the cycle of begging by local children by offering them education opportunities, which brings learning to them through its “Street School” project. Our efforts will fund that worthy project, as well as the Smart School project, which provides after-school learning for about 70 children in the S-tribe – one of the largest unreached tribes left in the world,” Frank says. “And the third OM Indonesia Project to be supported is achieving some amazing results in partnership with local NGO, Geresa, through the Merdeka Outreach Project in Bali, which provides a rehabilitation centre for young offenders, as well as women and girls rescued from the sex industry.” In keeping with tradition, the Everglades Fund created by Frank and wife Kathy will match the dealer donations dollar for dollar, with this year’s other recipient again being Variety - The Children’s Charity.  The donation will help provide individuals and organisations with access to a range of special needs equipment, including wheelchairs, vocal output speech devices, prosthetic limbs, play equipment, Liberty Swings and Sunshine Coaches.

The CW-P15, which was released to market earlier this year, impressed the judging panel who commented: “Best in class energy saving coupled with good design make this a very appealing product. The fit for purpose housing makes this a truly integrated product that blends with a range of installation options.” In response to the award announcement, Seeley International Founder and Executive Chairman, Mr Frank Seeley AM FAICD, said 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.  “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,” Mr Seeley said. “Our development of 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,” he said.   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, CW-P15 takes full advantage of environmentally friendly R-718 (water) to achieve high quality cooling at high electrical efficiencies, with no ozone depleting gases or chemicals employed in its operation. “The CW-P15 offers a long lifespan in excess of 20 years, and during that time it is not intended that any substantial renewal of major components will be required. There are no consumable items that need regular replacing - except for air filters, which can be recycled,” Mr Seeley said. “CW-P15 is made completely in-house at Seeley International’s SA-based manufacturing plant, and reflects our ongoing commitment to innovation, an active contribution to sustain local manufacturing, and ongoing employment opportunities for Australians,” he said. The CW-P15 has integrated several key maintenance and service enhancements to ensure low maintenance requirements and costs, and sets the industry benchmark when it comes to being easy to maintain through the development of new standard filters, with optional washable or disposable pleated panel filters accommodated in the one design. Similarly, clever design ensures that inverter drive motors are long life and easily accessible from front or rear of the unit, should servicing or replacement be needed. All service installation points, such as power, water and waste are easily accessible during and after installation. Other key features of the CW-P15 include: A new compact design which allows for easy side-by-side, rooftop installation, Smaller footprint and visually low profile designed to perfectly blend with a rooftop, Enhanced access and handling ensures easier installation, connection, service and maintenance, Integrated lifting points in the design, ensuring simple crane and forklift transport and installation, Direct-mount or frame-mount installation, with the ability to be mounted side-by-side on either side, with all maintainable parts accessed by the front or back of the unit, A twin fan design means CW-P15 features separate exhaust and supply channels, The design of CW-P15 allows constant supply through air conditioning systems’ low pressure ducts, New axial propeller fans, with the sickle blade / air-foil design ensuring added efficiency, Integrated air filtration systems, with options for disposable or washable box filters, Use of single phase power, rather than three phase power and Optional MagIQtouch Controller or standard MagIQcool Controllers, allowing users to set temperatures on-site or remotely. “The Australian Good Design Awards attracted innovative entries from all corners of the world and the standard of submissions this year has really been incredible,” said Dr Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia and Chair of the Good Design Awards program. “Good design is about making our lives better, safer and happier. It extends to everything around us – from the products we use in our daily lives and the services we interact with to the buildings we live and work in – they can all be improved through better design. That’s what lies at the heart of these awards”.

The performance results are independently tested by the Australian Gas Association (AGA). “Our ducted gas heating range is a popular choice of heating in cooler climatic conditions in Australia, and perfectly complements Seeley International’s existing range of Breezair and Coolair evaporative air conditioning in South Africa,” Mr Seeley said. Features and benefits of the Braemar 5 star range include: ·         Flexible zoning options, which enables setting individual room temperatures, as well as flexibility to heat only parts of a home. ·         Ducted gas heating reaches desired temperatures much faster than reverse cycle systems, and remain efficient when outside temperatures drop, when compared to a reverse cycle option. ·         Comfortable air is produced, which doesn’t dry skin and eyes. ·         Heating and cooling can be conveniently controlled by the revolutionary intuitive touch screen MagIQtouch Controller, which seamlessly blends with home décor. In addition to uncompromised product quality and reliability, the Braemar ducted gas heating range is completely designed and manufactured in Australia and comes with a two-year comprehensive warranty.

Air conditioners remain a household essential, particularly during the peak of the heat. While reverse cycle air conditioning can be one of the most efficient ways of enjoying year-round comfort, it’s important to remember there are multiple features that enable homeowners to use their air conditioners to maximise comfort whilst minimising their energy consumption. According to Fujitsu General Assist, Fujitsu’s customer service team, the most commonly asked questions revolve around usage and maintenance. A well maintained air conditioner will deliver optimum performance and efficiency. Whilst a poorly maintained air conditioning system is likely to produce inferior airflow and force the unit to work harder than it needs to. The Fujitsu General Assist team recommends the following tips to ensure Australian air conditioners are summer-ready and perform at their best: Clean the filters - Filters and indoor unit grilles collect dust over time, restricting airflow. Clean the filter using a vacuum cleaner or wash with mild detergent and warm water. Let the filter dry completely before replacing. Dust along the indoor unit grilles can also be vacuumed and wiped with a damp cloth. Have the air conditioner serviced periodically by a licensed air conditioning technician. A professional service every one to two years, depending on usage, ensures the air conditioner operates as efficiently as possible. Don’t set the temperature too low - In summer, set the temperature around 23 degrees Celsius to create a comfortable environment whilst minimising energy consumption. Use built in timers - When the mercury soars above average, use program timers to start the air conditioner on a low setting before the temperature gets too hot. Switching the air conditioner on during the hottest part of the day means it needs to exert more energy and takes longer to cool down the home. Close doors and windows whilst the unit is on - Fill small gaps and cracks around windows with sealant, and seal draughts under doors with weather strips or draft stoppers This ensures cool air remains indoors. Whether it is a whole home solution or cooling comfort for a small room, Fujitsu General has a wide range of reverse cycle air conditioning systems designed to meet the needs of any space.

Seeley International Founder and Executive Chairman, Mr Frank Seeley AM said the award represented this year’s pinnacle achievement for the revolutionary evaporative cooler, which has previously won the 2016 Australian Business Awards, as well as being a Good Design® Selection winner in the Product Design category (Domestic appliances) in recognition of its reduced energy usage and noise, and its reduced impact on the environment. “It has been a remarkable year for the super energy-efficient Braemar SuperStealth and it is very rewarding to see our innovation efforts and market excellence formally recognised at the Sydney Design Awards,” Mr Seeley said. “This isn’t just a win for the Seeley International, it is also a win for Australian manufacturers, and hopefully serves to motivate every entrepreneur and innovator who is committed to making a difference and making our manufacturing sector great once again,” he said. “It is also a win for customers, because they can buy with confidence knowing that they are investing in the best product of its type anywhere in the world, which comes with the stamp of approval from a number of independent, well-regarded industry and innovation award programs.” Mr Seeley said innovation and energy efficiency continued to be two of Seeley International’s core values, and the local manufacturer and employer remained committed to developing inspirational products considered to be the gold-standard of heating and cooling solutions. “This product is the first of its kind in the world, and represents a major breakthrough for the industry because it significantly reduces impact on the environment through reduced in energy use and noise. Its patented super quiet axial fan and a high efficiency inverter motor means the Braemar SuperStealth is now up to 50% more efficient than the previous Braemar evaporative cooler, which was regarded by the industry as state-of-the-art,” he said. Braemar has been the product of choice of Australian families for more than 50 years, and with its super-quiet and super-cool technology, the Braemar SuperStealth further strengthens the brand’s reputation as the most tried, trusted and altogether innovative choice available in both Australian and International markets.

Climate Wizard emerges as toast of the town at Wine Industry Impact Awards 2016-10-24T23:13:33Z climate-wizard-emerges-as-toast-of-the-town-at-wine-industry-impact-awards Seeley International’s multi-award winning Climate Wizard has claimed yet another industry accolade overnight when it was crowned winner of the Wine Making Award at the prestigious Wine Industry Impact Awards in Adelaide. Seeley International Founder and Executive Chairman, Mr Frank Seeley AM, said Climate Wizard was the perfect solution to offset the spiralling high energy costs associated with keeping barrel halls at ideal temperatures in the hot Australian climate, as well as greatly reducing the evaporation of wine in those same barrel halls. “Seeley International’s Climate Wizard dew-point/indirect evaporative coolers have been utilised successfully in the wine industry for a number of years, and over that time they have proven to be spectacularly successful in barrel storage areas where precise temperatures and humidity controlled environments are crucial,” Mr Seeley said. “Wineries now have the ability to control temperature and humidity of barrel halls using 100% outside air to ensure ideal rates of maturation and minimise evaporation levels of the wine,” he said. “That is great news for winemakers facing spiralling energy costs, and reducing evaporation rates helps to further strengthen their bottom line and improve the sustainability of their operations.” Mr Seeley said real-world analysis of two Climate Wizard Supercool air-conditioners in operation at one SA-based winery has shown that they use only 15% of the energy of refrigerated systems. “Climate Wizard offers great flexibility when it comes to installation, and can operate independently or interface with conventional existing building management systems,” Mr Seeley said. “South Australia enjoys a reputation the world over for producing many amazing wines, and Seeley International is delighted that our own award-winning Climate Wizard is now very much part of that global success story,’ he said. “Just as it takes time, patience and commitment to create a premium wine, it has been a similar journey in developing a premium product like Climate Wizard and its innovative indirect evaporative cooling technology. It is an honour to see our commitment to innovation, and our commitment to the Australian wine industry, recognised by this very special award win.” The awards, which are an initiative of Wine Industry Suppliers Australia (WISA), are designed to showcase business excellence and innovation in improving the competitiveness and capability of the nation’s grape and wine industry. Judging is conducted by industry experts across six key categories – grape growing, wine making, packaging, distribution and logistics, marketing and communications, and tourism.
