Trane extends fan coil choices
BELGIUM: Ingersoll Rand has extended the Trane UniTrane range of fan coil units with three new models.
The new products include the addition of the a W-Line range of hi-wall fan coil units and upgrades to the portfolio with D-Line and B-Line – two new and more compact concealed ductable ranges.
The UniTrane W-Line is a high wall unit available in four sizes and many different configurations. With capacities ranging from 1.2kW to 3.8kW, its modular design is said to allow for mounting two-way or three-way valves and the condensate pump into the casing, without any impact on performance and footprint.
The W-Line is available with wired wall control, infrared remote control, MB electronic board for Modbus management and electric heating coil.
The new D-Line models are said to be suitable for use in ductwork with up to 80Pa of available static pressure. Available in four different casings and both two-pipe and four-pipe versions, the D-Line extends up to 8kW of cooling capacity and 10kW of heating capacity, with the possibility to add up to two additional rows for heating or cooling.
With airflow ranging from 375m³/h to 2220 m³/h, the D-Line is said to offer customers reduced noise and 20% smaller footprint compared to legacy products. Up to 80% energy savings are claimed with DFE models, due to its high efficiency EC motor.
The B-Line concealed ducted models are said to be designed for applications demanding higher capacities and up to 425Pa of available static pressure. All models are offered as two-pipe or four-pipe versions as a standard factory-mounted solution.
This range offers airflows from 1000m³/h to 7500 m³/h, cooling capacities from 4 to 33kW and heating capacity from 6 to 61kW.
All the new UniTrane units are compatible with existing controls for the UniTrane cassette and cabinet-type ranges.
All ranges are Eurovent certified and compliant with the European Energy-related Products Directive (ErP).
