With summer just around the corner, and the Met office predicting another scorcher this year, portable air-conditioning units are a must-have in any workplace, temporary structure or space that needs to be cooled down.
The ACT 7 water-cooled air-conditioner delivers just that, making it an appealing stock item for rental companies and event organisations to offer their customers.
Whether the requirement is to cool down a retail space, marquee, small warehouse, server room or even an office where the existing air-conditioning system has broken down, the ACT 7 can deliver efficient cooling in a matter of minutes with no cooling knowledge or special training required to install the unit.
In contrast to most air-cooled units, the ACT 7 provides whole-room cooling without the need to continually exhaust internal air. Because of this, the unit does not require a large exhaust air duct. Getting the ACT 7 up and running is simply a matter of attaching the cooling line connectors to the outdoor heat rejection unit. The two 22mm quick connect, self-sealing flexible hoses easily fit into a small window or door opening.
The ACT 7 is packed with small but important details that make it easy to operate while adding mobility and comfort. Strong castors and handles ease manoeuvrability, and its compact size makes it easily fit through narrow doors and in elevators. Air flow direction and speed can be adjusted for better control and comfort with the durable powder coated finish making it easy to keep the unit clean.
Two operation modes
The ACT 7 has two cooling modes: ‘air-conditioning’ and ‘fan only’. In ‘air-conditioning’ mode, the unit’s electronic thermostat automatically keeps the room temperature at any cooling set point between 8°C and 35°C.
The ACT 7 has a cooling capacity of up to 7 kW. It can operate in outdoor temperature ranges from 0°C to 40°C and in inside temperatures from 8°C to 35°C.
How it works
The ACT 7 absorbs the heat into a refrigerant cooling system. From there, the heat is transferred to the self-containing chilled water/glycol system. It is then pumped through to the outdoor unit where the water is cooled and the heat dissipates.
The indoor unit is connected to the outdoor unit via two 22mm quick-connect, self-sealing flexible hoses. These hoses are supplied in 5m or 15m lengths and can be connected to a maximum length of 30m.
