Double flow heat pump: CINEFFI LN – Low noise – DESIGNED FOR CINEMAS

CINEFFI LN is a high energy performance double flow heat pump with 4 dampers, designed for the heating, Free Cooling and air conditioning of cinema halls. CINEFFI LN is the low noise unit specially designed for cinema facilities. As an ErP 2018 ready unit, the CINEFFI LN meets the European regulatory obligations as per Directive 2009/125/EC on the ecodesign of ErPs (Energy related Products).

ERP Ready


Reversible heat pump with 20-year guarantee against corrosion

The CINEFFI LN heat pump offers fully optimised air treatment. Noise level is a critical factor for ventilation systems in cinemas. Thanks to its full aluminium structure (frame & casing) that ensures an excellent corrosion protection, this air conditioning and heating system is covered by a 20-year guarantee against corrosion. This single flow rooftop heat pump is delivered ready to operate. The separate technical section facilitates service and control of the unit and allows measurement and adjustment during operation.

This air handling unit operates as a reversible heat pump

  • Source: outside air + inside air (in recovery mode)
  • Treated fluid: inside air + hygienic air

The following operating modes are available:

  • Heat pump
  • Cooling
  • Free Cooling: cooling with outside air, without thermodynamics

In those cases, the double flow heat pump operates:

  1. With all recirculated air
With all fresh air/all exhaust air
  3. With mixed-air

The CINEFFI LN double flow heat pump ensures air extraction and fresh air modulation while maintaining a constant indoor pressure.

The ETT packaged unit consists of 3 separate sections:

  1. The separate technical section houses the refrigeration components, the electrical board and the control components.
  2. The internal section ensures air change and air treatment.
  3. The exhaust air section allows heat recovery and/or removal on exhaust air (depending on the operating mode).
