Now approved for certification testing for packaged unitary small HVAC products
April 7, 2016
UL announced that its Plano, Texas, facility has received approval from the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) to perform testing for its Unitary Small Air-Conditioner and Heat Pump (USAC/HP) certification program for packaged products.
Available in a horizontal configuration for easy slab installation, the R8HE condensing gas/electric packaged unit has microchannel all-aluminum indoor and outdoor coils, which provide increased resistance against instances of corrosion.
Packaged air conditioning solutions from Trane now feature a more rugged microchannel aluminum coil construction to increase reliability and sustainability. The more robust microchannel coil replaces copper and aluminum tube-and-fin condenser coils. The microchannel coils reduce refrigerant charge as much as 50 percent.
The York® brand of products with MagnaDRY™ technology has been expanded to include 3-5-ton Predator MagnaDRY hot gas reheat packaged units. The ZR037, ZR049, and ZR061 are based on a state-of-the-art dehumidification system that keeps occupants comfortable in humidity-sensitive applications without overcooling the space.
