Hoffman SPECTRACOOL Air Conditioners

hof_specracoolPentair Technical Products McLean brand SPECTRACOOL™ Indoor and Outdoor Air Conditioners deliver vital cooling to sensitive electronics withinenclosures. Designed to meet a broad range of application requirements, the air conditioners now feature a dust-resistant treated coil, supporting filterless operation in most environments. SPECTRACOOL Air Conditioners provide a broad range of cooling capacities, power input and mounting options. Models provide 4,000, 6,000 8,000, 12,000 and 20,000 BTUs/hr (1,172, 1,758, 2,300, 3,500 and 5,900 Watts) of cooling and operate on 115, 230 or 400/460 3-phase AC volt power input.

The filterless option reduces clogging—which can lead to extremely costly and time-consuming system failures. This design additionally saves labor and money typically required for filter replacements. SPECTRACOOL Air Conditioners also feature rotary compressors, which are more energy efficient than reciprocating compressors and allow quick re-start under pressure without causing damage. Plus, the air conditioners use R134A earth-friendly refrigerant to lower their environmental impact.

Dual impellers—which pull air into the front of the unit and direct the air upwards in a 90-degree angle for the most direct air path—provide redundancy on the condenser side. An integrated active condensate evaporator provides a method of removing condensation without the need for a drain tube, and a thermal expansion valve can increase or decrease the refrigerant flow according to load changes on the evaporator.

“Inadequate enclosure cooling can lead to costly production delays, lost productivity, product recalls and thus, tarnished reputations and reduced sales,” said James Swanson, Product Manager for Pentair Technical Products. “With a new, environmentally friendly design as well as versatile features and options, SPECTRACOOL Indoor and Outdoor Air Conditioners can be specified to provide an ideal solution for almost any indoor or outdoor application.”

SPECTRACOOL Indoor and Outdoor Air Conditioners feature a modern, attractive all-metal exterior cover with minimal use of visible fasteners. The cover is easily removable in one piece for repainting at the customer’s location. An outdoor package enclosure heater option provides the ability to operate in temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius, and a reliable mechanical thermostat on the enclosure side features a digital display for visual performance monitoring. Integrated EZ mount tabs facilitate easy installation, allowing units to be rested on the enclosure cutout during installation. Units offer surface mounting and can be specially ordered for recessed mount.
