Completely redesigned for easier installation and improved performance, the chilled water air handler, recipient of an Honorable Mention at the 2012 International Boatbuilders Exhibition and Conference (IBEX), incorporates many innovative features, including an optional Breathe Easy™ air purifier. Its rust-free, anti-slosh, positive-flow drain pan quickly removes condensate water and a third drain hole can be employed to further increase drainage. Each drain hole is reinforced and has an external stop to prevent over tightening of the screw-in hose barb. For complete flexibility, each drain hole can accept either a straight or 90-degree hose barb. In addition, the vibration-isolation mounting hardware can be attached at a variety of locations along the perimeter of the drain pan and ensures a quieter performance. Gold Series air handlers feature powerful high-velocity (HV) blowers. The rotatable blower ring can be positioned easily by adjusting a single screw, and can even blow directly downward. Optional DC "WhisperCool" blowers are available. The blower inlet adapter is made of a high-temperature resin to easily withstand the heat generated by the optional internal electric heating element. Gold Series air handlers provide easy access to the manual heater-overload safety switch, which is accessible without disassembling the unit. The optional integrated Breathe Easy air purifier is positioned directly in the airstream and uses ultraviolet (UV) light and photocatalytic nano-mesh technology to improve air quality without producing any harmful ozone. The award-winning Breathe Easy eliminates odors and up to 99.9 % of contaminants.
