UC is the Thermowell’s range of sea water condensed chiller units, available both in cooling only and heat pump version, specifically designed for installation into the biggest vessels. UC chillers are used to cool / heat a water – glycol mixing which flows through a closed loop of insulated pipes reaching every ambient inside the vessel where a fan coil is installed. Compact in sizes and easy in handling and maintenance, these units are the best choice for new and used or under refitting vessels. UC are available in 7 sizes, from 16,000 up to 50,000 BTU/h cooling power, in cooling only version or heat pump version with reverse cycle. All components (high efficiency and noiseless rotary or scroll compressors, corrosion resistant copper-nickel condenser, stainless steel brazed plates heat exchanger, high and low pressure switches, bi – flow thermostatic expansion valves) are assembled on a 100% stainless steel case which assures a long life service and the collection of great quantity of condensate. These units are equipped with a highly innovative electronic controller (eventually remotable for installation into the pilothouse or other technical rooms) which manages all the functions of the chiller as well as the failures diagnostics through well-defined alarm codes.
Electrical box can be installed remotely from the unit, up to 1,20m. Each unit is pre-charged, leak checked and tested in all operating modes at the most critical conditions. All Thermowell marine air conditioners are factory filled up with environmentally friend green refrigerant R410A and no further charge is required before the installation on board.
