BV – Large Outdoor Air Cooled Condensing Units


[email protected]
1-844-893-3222 ext. 522

This unit features single or dual compressor(s) and a vertical discharge air-cooled condenser that is suitable for large walk-in coolers and freezers, blast freezers, warehouse applications and air conditioned spaces where roof mounted condensers are most practical. Using high efficiency compressors and utilizing the THERMOSPAN™ condenser core design, the unit meets all application needs from 15 to 100 Hp (high and medium temperature) and 10 to 80 Hp (low temperature).
