HVAC specialist Dometic Marine is outlining details of how its cutting-edge multi-stage modular chillers can benefit a range of commercial vessels during ITS 2012 Barcelona. Designed for easy installation in small spaces, Dometic Marine’s compact chiller modules offer a durable, long term solution compared with bulky, non-modular chillers that are typically less manageable.
The chiller modules feature Dometic Marine’s unique space-saving ‘box’ design and compact footprint, making them easy to install and service. Each system can be customised by stacking vertically or horizontally to best fit the vessel’s available space, offering the ideal solution for smaller commercial vessels with limited space on-board including tugs, workboats and patrol boats.
“Older equipment used on tugs and workboats can be larger, heavier and more intrusive making it difficult to service and replace, so our modular chillers are a popular choice for smaller commercial vessels and customers seeking to refit their air conditioning.
“Of course, the concept is ideal for new-build vessels too as it significantly reduces installation time and enables greater freedom in vessel design. The systems are also easy to move in and out of the engine room, through doorways with no dissembling required,” comments Paul Hickinbotham, Director of Sales & Operations, Dometic Marine.
Dometic Marine’s modular chillers offer a multitude of cooling capacities ranging from 16,000 BTUs to 396,000 BTUs. For larger, custom cooling and heating capacities their modular design allows multi-stage systems to be combined to offer capacity of up to 2.4 million BTUs.
For installation support, after-sales service and maintenance and repair service, Dometic has an unmatched network of company-owned offices located in strategic regions throughout the world which are backed in the field by a network of authorised distributors, dealers and fully-trained service engineers in over 100 countries worldwide.
