Dometic’s New Line of Workboat AC Units

Friday, December 12, 2008

Dometic today unveiled a new series of marine air conditioning units designed specifically for the requirements of offshore supply vessels and other workboats.

The new Dometic DuraSea condensing units are designed for deck or rooftop mounting. The stainless-steel 304 housing and fasteners protect the components from corrosion in the salt-air environment. All exposed components have a protective coating. Optional mounting risers are available to elevate the unit above the deck to facilitate water drainage and protect the coil from debris and salt water. The control box and compressor are inside the cabinet for easy service access and additional corrosion protection.

Available in capacities ranging from 36,000 to 72,000 BTU/hr, Dometic offers the DuraSea units in a standard square-shaped chassis, or a slim-profile size to meet tighter space requirements. Both models feature a unique vertical fan-mount design that protects fan components from constant, direct exposure to corrosive weather conditions that can cause horizontally mounted fans to fail and collapse. The systems are compatible with most standard evaporator/blower units.

The DuraSea condensing units utilize scroll compressors, offering high-efficiency reliable performance under rugged conditions. The scroll compressor reduces noise and vibration, and provides low starting torque to minimize current spikes at startup. The DuraSea meets or exceeds all ABYC and USCG regulations, CE directives and ARI standards. Dometic offers a two-year warranty on the compressor and a one-year warranty on parts.

“When we set out to design the DuraSea product line, we first talked with workboat operators and builders to ensure the products would meet their unique requirements,” said Frank Marciano, president of Dometic Corporation, Environmental Division. “As a result, we have developed a deckmounted unit that is easy to install and service and stands up to the extreme conditions of the marine environment.”
