Watkins Hire becomes the king of split air conditioner
Heating and cooling specialist, Watkins Hire, has become the only hire firm to offer the new KwikCOOL SAC 25 portable split air conditioning unit, offering customers a more powerful, flexible cooling solution than ever before.
The SAC 25 upgrades the technology used by older PAC split air conditioning systems with an increase in cooling power to 7.4kW plus increased air volume and throw. Watkins Hire can now specify temporary cooling solutions with a much wider ambient operating range 8 degrees C to 36 degrees C , which is particularly useful for environments that need to operate at lower ambient temperatures such as data & telecoms rooms, offices with a high IT specification to name a few applications.
Explains Alan Ferguson from Watkins Hire: "The older models though effective would not kick in until ambient temperatures reached at least 17 degrees C, which is already too warm for some environments. The new SAC 25 does not switch off its compressor to defrost, the older technology used on the PAC units does. Watkins SAC25 does not "ice up" at 8/9 degrees C thus the SAC25 supplies cold air continuously, with the SAC 25 we can offer all the advantages that customers have come to expect, such as a lightweight, compact unit with easy installation, with the added benefit of much lower temperature settings."
Fully Portable with simple user controls and automatic operation, the SAC 25 is economical to run and can be operated from a standard 13amp domestic socket. A SAC 25 features a water cooling system, thereby avoiding refrigerant loss, making it safe, easy to use and very reliable. The cooling unit can be sited up to 40 metres (131 ft) from the condenser and cold air can also be ducted to two separate locations anywhere within a 10 metre radius of the unit. Typically, each unit can cool up to 180m2 (6,356ft2), with three fan speeds and automatic thermostat control to deliver complete flexibility and excellent performance.
Alan continues: "The SAC 25 offers quick, efficient cooling, even for lower ambient temperature environments: you simply put it into position, plug it in and it cools straight away. What's more, the unit's compact, low noise design means that the end user won't even notice it's there most of the time. With this temporary air conditioning solution we are truly offering the marketplace something that provides excellent performance and flexibility for any environment and we expect demand to be high."
