POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – October 6, 2008 – Dometic Corporation, the leading supplier of marine air conditioning systems, has unveiled a new series of modular, multi-ton chillers engineered for optimal use of the environmentally safe R-410A refrigerant. The Cruisair MTD series is designed for installation flexibility, reliability, maximum performance, and easy accessibility for maintenance.
Flexible hose improves alignment for customer connections and reinforced stainless-steel seawater connections provide added strength. Thermal expansion valves optimize performance over a wide range of conditions, while a hot-gas bypass valve maintains heating performance in cold seawater and helps prevent water freezing in the heat exchanger. With heating performance effective in cold seawater temperatures as low as 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3.5 degrees Celsius), the need for separate fossil fuel or electric water heaters is eliminated in most applications.
The MTD comes standard with a scroll compressor and includes larger drain fittings for faster condensate drainage. Removable seawater manifolds enable easy cleaning of condenser tubing. Optional variable frequency drives eliminate power surges at start-up and run the unit at full 60Hz capacity, even on a 50Hz power source.
A reverse-cycle unit, the MTD provides cooling or heating. It is available in capacities ranging from 24,000 to 120,000 BTUs, and multiple modules can be used in any combination to achieve the total desired capacity. Custom frame and water-manifold installation for multiple units is also available.
