Guidelines for Cool Mate
choosing the proper model Cool Mate, primary consideration
should be given to calculated BTU loads and available power supply.
The 5K unit is ideal for use with either a shore power hook-up or a
battery powered inverter which allows for underway air conditioning
without the necessity of a generator. The 5K unit is available in
115V/60Hz (CLM5K) and 220V/50Hz (CLM5KZ). For 230V/60Hz applications
a step down transformer must be used with the 115V 5K Cool Mate.
This transformer weighs 19 pounds and is readily available in both
115V & 230V but are not recommended for use with an inverter.
The location of the Cool Mate unit should be dry and accessible for
service. The only air access should be from the return air
source-never from the bilges, engine room or other combustible vapor
source. Avoid odoriferous air sources, i.e. heads, holding tanks,
etc. The unit should be installed with the proper fasteners and
secured to a horizontal surface sufficient for the unit weight and
torsion load from the vessel's movement. Grilles should be sized
according to Marine Air Systems design standards (refer to Supply
and Return Air Grilles literature sheet). Install the return air
grilles low and supply air grilles high. Ducting should be sized
according to unit specifications. All ducting
be installed as smooth, straight and taut as possible, avoiding any
unnecessary bends or loops and trimming any excess. Once ducting
runs are positioned properly they should be securely fastened to
avoid shifting due to motion of the vessel.
Plastic vacuum-formed and insulated aluminum transitions are
available for proper air-flow distribution into any cabin or area.
Ducting should be properly secured to these transitions to prevent
air flow leakage. Built-in plenums or chases must be sized properly,
completely sealed and insulated. Reinforced marine grade hose should
be used for seawater circuit. All fittings must be double hose
clamped. The hose should be rotated upward from the thru-hull intake
to the unit to prevent air locking the centrifugal sea water pump.
Condensate drains must be routed downward without any kinks or
restrictions to a sump or overboard discharge and securely fastened.
Do not terminate condensate drain line in bilge, as vapors can
travel up the drain line and mix with return air. Circuit breakers
and wire gauge must be sized according to marine design standards.
Only stranded tinned cooper wire should be used. All equipment
should be properly grounded and bonded. In keeping with regulations
set forth by the EPA, only certified technicians should perform
service, or make adjustments to, the refrigerant circuit.
