KM Condensing Unit

As North America’s leading manufacturer of commercial refrigeration products, KeepRite Refrigeration specializes in applications in food storage and processing, industrial process cooling, including evaporator coils, condensers, heat transfer and of course, condensing units.

We pride ourselves in being the right choice for the refrigeration professional which is why we are constantly developing innovative features and available options for our condensing units.


KM Medium Outdoor Air-Cooled Condensing Unit Overview

Designed for use with a variety of refrigerants, including Low GWP Refrigerants, our KM line of medium outdoor air-cooled condensing units are environmentally friendly operating on less power and refrigerant charge.

Featuring single or dual compressor(s) and a vertical discharge air-cooled condenser, these condensing units are suitable for large walk-in coolers and freezers, blast freezers and spaces where roof-mounted condensers are most practical.


Model Applications and Specifications

KeepRite Refrigeration’s medium outdoor air-cooled condensing units are ideal for high, medium and low temperature applications. Using high efficiency compressors and utilizing the THERMOSPAN™ condenser core design, the unit meets all application needs from 6 to 40 HP (high/medium temperature) and 7.5 to 44 HP (low temperature).

The packaged refrigeration system is cULus approved and includes the outdoor weather housing, compressor and condenser systems and electrical control panels, all housed within a single assembly.

The condensing unit will be equipped with a base frame made from 12 gauge G90 galvanized steel while a 16 gauge G90 galvanized steel weather-resistant housing surrounds the compressor compartment and condenser section.


Product Features

With a generously sized condenser that allows the unit to operate at higher than normal ambient conditions, our KM medium outdoor air-cooled condensing unit has an abundance of product features including several energy efficient compressor options to choose from, available in single, dual and even parallel-piped configurations.

The subcooling circuit in the condenser unit increases system efficiency and provides dependable compressor operation. THERMOSPAN™ condenser core design eliminates tube sheet leaks and provides reliable operation while the 3/8” condenser tubes reduce refrigerant charge.

Electrical components are housed in a spacious and conveniently located panel and in case of a compressor trip, a lock-out rely de-energizes the liquid line solenoid valve. The end compartment panels allow unrestricted access to service the compressor(s) and all other components. In addition, SPDT contact is provided for field wired alarm circuit.

Additional Options

Much like the product features on this condensing unit, the additional options available are just as numerous including our Limitrol+ Head Pressure Control System and Shafted EC Motors. Not to mention the suction accumulator, replaceable suction filter, insulated suction lines, compressor capacity control (where applicable), discharge line check valve, compressor circuit breaker, defrost time clock, and so much more!

On top of all of that, KeepRite Refrigeration is proud to announce that we now offer pre-selected factory mounted option packages on our KM condensing units. Created to streamline the ordering process, allow wholesalers to reduce the number of SKU’s on their shelves, and to shorten lead times by up to 7 days, customers now have the option to choose from 6 option packages.
