BB is the range of splitted direct expansion and sea water condensed marine air conditioners, ideal for cooling/heating one or more contiguous cabins into small/medium vessels (8-18 m). BB’s are available in 6 sizes, from 8,000 up tp 24,000 BTU/h cooling power, in cooling only version, heat pump version with reverse cycle, or equipped with electric heater. BB series has an extremely light and compact design for easy installation and service. These air conditioners are made by two key components: condensing and ventilating unit. Usually the condensing unit is placed into the engine room, thus isolating the compressor noise, while the ventilating one is installed into one cabin, thus minimizing the volume required inside the living ambients. These two components are joined between them through insulated copper refrigerant pipes (2.5 m long pipes are supplied with the unit as standard). All components (high efficiency and noiseless compressors and blowers, corrosion resistant copper-nickel condenser, high and low pressure switches) are assembled on a 100% stainless steel case which assures a long life service and the collection of great quantity of condensate.
For an immediate use, these air conditioners are equipped with a LCD back-lighted digital control panel and a practical infra-red remote controller, both supplied as standard components. The electronic controller has a highly innovative PC board which manages all the functions of the air conditioner (temperature setting, fan speed, operation mode…) as well as the failures diagnostics through well-defined alarm codes.
