Dometic Introduces New Self-Contained Air Conditioning Units
15,000 BTU/hr Package Unit Provides Engine-Off Cooling and Heating for Trucks, Buses, Ambulances and Other Vehicles RICHMOND, Va. - At the 2011 Mid-America Trucking Show, Dometic is showing a new 15,000 BTU/hr self-contained air conditioning unit for specialty vehicles, large motor coaches, emergency vehicles and other heavy-duty mobile applications. The system runs on 120V AC electricity from a shorepower connection or a diesel generator. All mechanical and electrical components, including the compressor, condenser and evaporator, are mounted on a compact chassis with built-in shock and vibration isolation and an aluminum sound shield. The sealed refrigerant circuit is precharged at the factory and requires no additional charge at installation. The system has a 2.5 kW heating capacity as well as cooling, and can be installed in an undercarriage bay or storage locker for an emergency vehicle or bus. Air is pulled directly across the evaporator coil and discharged through one or more discharge grills inside the vehicle. The evaporator and condenser discharge locations can be rotated 90 degrees in the field for flexibility in mounting. "This new package unit is a versatile and flexible solution for cooling and heating in a variety of different vehicle platforms," said Lou Siegel, spokesman for Dometic's U.S. trucking business unit. "It draws on our more than 50 years of experience in vehicular air conditioners and is designed to give years of trouble-free performance under the toughest over-the-road conditions." Dometic will showcase its full range of air conditioning solutions, refrigerators, freezers, and other products for the truck market in Booth 20075 at the Mid-America Trucking Show.
