Chiller compactness for tight mechanical rooms
When designing an HVAC system, space and chiller compactness is often one of the aspects that consultants need to consider. Every single inch taken from human activities has an impact on the profitability of businesses. In big cities, for instance, space has a very high cost. That is why businesses like shopping malls and hotels want to take as little as possible for HVAC systems and use that space to shape a better experience for their customers.
Applications requiring chiller compactness
The Marine applications is an example of an application where space is important. In this kind of application HVAC systems often need to fit small and tight plants. That happens mainly for the structural constraints of a ship. But it also happens because the more space is allocated to guest rooms, restaurants, and all those services that can make for a better customer experience, the more profitable will be the cruise as a business.
HVAC projects need for compactness
These are just examples of applications that usually require small footprint and compactness. We have mentioned just some of the reasons why some applications might require these features in a chiller. It goes without saying that the number of applications requiring compactness are more than the above-mentioned. Also residential buildings, or public buildings, hospitals, trade centers and offices might require small footprint and compactness.
The point is that whenever the application, for whatever reason, requires compact units and high cooling capacities, consultants have a challenge.
A range providing both high capacity and compact footprint
These two ranges stand out for their limited size despite the high cooling capacity they can provide. With the Knock Down Electrical Panel option, then, they offer an additional way to fit tight spaces.
This option gives the possibility to strip down the unit of the electrical panel to easily fit the chiller into technical rooms through narrow doorways. Also, to face the space limits of particularly small technical rooms, the Knock Down Electrical Panel, can allow a remote installation of the control panel. The panel can even be installed in a different room than the one accommodating the chiller, simply using longer cables to connect the control panel to the chiller. This option, then, becomes a perfect solution for those applications requiring optimization of space.
