KM – Medium Outdoor Air Cooled Condensing UnitsJuly 21, 2016
KF – Outdoor Air Cooled Multi-Compressor Condensing UnitsJuly 21, 2016
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).
Our KVS/KVD condensing units meet or exceed the new “AWEF” requirements for condensing units. Use this guide which collects all of the AWEF numbers for compliant equipment: https://docs.k-rp.com/awef/kr_awef_quick_reference.pdf

- Compatible with Low GWP Refrigerants
- Units are CULUS Listed.
- Designed for use with various popular refrigerants.
- Energy efficient compressors with POE or mineral oil.
- Several compressor options to choose from: Copeland Discus and Bitzer reciprocating.
- Single, Dual and parallel-piped (optional) compressor configurations available.
- ThermospanTM condenser core design eliminates tube sheet leaks and provides reliable operation.
- 3/8″ condenser tubes reduce refrigerant charge.
- Generously sized condenser allows unit to operate at higher than normal ambient conditions.
- Optional coating and fin surfaces for condenser core protection available.
- Specially designed, thermally protected and permanently lubricated ball bearing condenser fan motor(s).
