water-source heat pumpThe Versatec™ Base combines high efficiency and value-added features in a compact water-source heat pump for water loop and geothermal applications. According to the company, the heat pump model exceeds American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) 90.1 efficiencies, while utilizing environmentally friendly R-410A refrigerant. Available in a wide selection of capacities (018-070 MBtuh output), the heat pump offers application flexibility, in both retrofit and new construction projects. Units feature a reciprocating single-capacity compressor paired with a PSC blower motor to provide high efficiency while ensuring quiet operation and a wide range of airflow selections. Optional X13 and variable-speed electronically commutated motors (ECM 2.3) are also available for improved efficiency and comfort. The Versatec Base includes an optional two-position water valve and an automatic water flow control valve, which ensures the proper water flow rate regardless of pressure drop. An optional factory-installed, low-pressure drop (high Cv) water solenoid valve is also available for variable-speed pumping applications. The heat pump’s cabinet features a small footprint, so it can be used for retrofit applications. Every cabinet is made of heavy-gauge galvanized steel for maximum corrosion resistance. Standard foil-faced insulation improves air quality and ensures easy cleaning, while optional FormiShield™ Plus coil coating protects against formicary corrosion. The polyester enamel coating provides 1,000-hour salt spray protection. Another option is the company’s proprietary coating, ThermaShield™, which is applied to the water-to-water heat exchanger to protect against condensation in extended range applications (below 50°F).
