Kelvion combines expertise in new cooler

GERMANY: Kelvion has introduced a new air cooler to replace its Goedhart FC38D, Küba DP and Searle DSR ranges.

The result of joint development work between the three teams, the Kelvion KDC dual discharge air cooler is designed for uses in commercial HVACR, cold rooms, and freezer rooms.

Its EC fans are said to ensure energy efficiency, and its dual air discharge enables uniform distribution of temperature – since the air flow is guided along the ceiling and deep into the room. Two fixed fan speeds enable either high air capacity, or quiet operation with low draft.

The KDC is designed in its standard version for synthetic refrigerants or brine. Depending on model size, the maximum cooling duty is 1.4 to 23kW with HFC, or 2.8 to 37.7kW with cooling by brine. The optional 45/90-bar version enables the use of CO2 and provides maximum cooling duty of 1.7 to 23kW, depending on model size.

Other features of the KDC include its low weight, a low silhouette design, and its drip tray hinged on both sides to give access to the bottom for cleaning and maintenance.

Options include a CAL distributor for multiple injection of refrigerant, as well as an easily accessible condensate-water pump for medium temperature cooling.
