Seeley International is Australia’s leading manufacturer of heating and cooling products. Seeley International’s latest product release, Climate Wizard model CW-P15, is 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 operating in humid climates, and offers comfort conditions that are equivalent to, or better than, conventional refrigerated air conditioning. By using a patented counter-flow heat exchanger, the CW-P15 enhances the power of evaporative cooling by supplying air much cooler than traditional evaporative systems, but uniquely makes sure the cool air never comes into direct contact with the evaporative process. Not only can CW-P15 improve the cooling performance of refrigerated equipment, it can extend the life of existing refrigerated systems and achieve vastly reduced cooling costs, whether it is a retrofit or new installation.

Made completely in-house at Seeley’s South Australian manufacturing plant using parts largely manufactured in house as well, this new Climate Wizard product reflects Seeley’s commitment innovation, while embracing vertical integration rather than outsourcing, and actively contributes to the sustainability of local manufacturing and ongoing employment opportunities for Australians.

Designed for commercial and industrial applications, CW-P15 establishes a cooling benchmark for the industry, by combining on the award-winning pedigree of Climate Wizard with a number of innovative engineering and design features.

The CW-P15 delivers outstanding performance whether operating at ground level or at height. The tapered low profile allows the installation to maintain the building aesthetics, and units can be mounted side by side (on either available side) to save on valuable roof space. Installation has also been made easier by automatic set up calibration, as the model dynamically reacts to the static pressure of the installation ductwork, removing the need to critically check the installation process and ensuring that overtime, optimum cooling is achieved.

CW-P15 offers flexible configurations across commercial and industrial applications, and has been designed to take full advantage of environmentally friendly water (designated as a refrigerant R-718) to achieve high quality cooling at high efficiency, at times up to 10 times more efficient than an equivalent capacity refrigerated system. No ozone depleting gases or chemicals are employed in its operation.

The design and construction of the CW-P15 has been engineered to utilise stable recyclable materials throughout, so at the end of life, they can be separated and converted to an alternative use. CW-P15 contributes to environmental improvements in that its use instead of ozone depleting refrigerant systems greatly reduces the ultimate harmful effects of refrigerant gases that leak or are discharged to the atmosphere. Climate Wizard’s exceptionally low power consumption reduces the need for greater power infrastructure and generating capacity, all of which act against the principles of sustainability.

Organisational participation includes private companies, publicly listed companies, multinational subsidiaries, not-for-profit organisations, non-government organisations, educational institutions, franchise systems, partnerships, government departments, government agencies, local government and statutory bodies operating in Australia. Participants are required to complete a written submission for a specific initiative or product. Initiatives can include but are not limited to projects, programs, processes, systems, technologies, developments, ventures and undertakings. Products can include but are not limited to goods, services, devices, equipment, programs, processes, activities, applications, software, cloud-based services, platforms and systems. Entry is open to all domestic and international products commercially available on the Australian market.
Entries are assessed utilising a robust and dynamic framework to ensure that the assessment process is pertinent and objective. The World Business Awards Framework (WBA Framework) is utilised as a structured model of assessment that enables the participating organisations to be benchmarked against world class performance standards. The WBA Framework consists of specialised assessment modules pertaining to the evaluation criteria for each of the award categories. The criteria and sub-criteria provide a robust set of requirements that are used as the methodology for benchmarking and learning among the participating organisations.
The Australian Business Awards are an annual comprehensive awards program which recognises organisations that demonstrate the core values of business innovation, product innovation, technological achievement and employee engagement via a set of business and product award categories. The Australian Business Awards are the national chapter of an integrated, hierarchical leadership program conducted on a national and international level. Eligible organisations participate in the international chapter of the program at The World Business Awards. Conducted annually, The World Business Awards seeks to engage with the world’s business, innovation and technology leaders through a global recognition and knowledge building initiative that is underpinned by the program’s established framework. The program engages with organisations worldwide to benchmark the full spectrum of their products, services and initiatives and to review their business performance. The cycle culminates in the recognition and celebration of organisations that implement world-class business initiatives, projects, products and services.
Organisations that participate are provided with the unique opportunity to benchmark themselves against the top performers globally. The recipients are acknowledged for their achievements and identified as the elite of their industry earning a place amongst a distinguished group by having their projects, initiatives, products, services, contributions and achievements being recognised on a prominent and far-reaching scale. The program provides the ultimate platform for building knowledge, increasing brand awareness, equity, loyalty and retention through increased exposure, recognition and prestige. This establishes a valuable resource that can be used extensively to create opportunities for publicity, positive organisational profiling and heightened brand awareness within the respective industries both nationally and internationally.
