Curtains up for Arcticsphere
Spheros engineers developed a complete split air conditioning system specifically for the North American school and shuttle bus market, known as Articsphere. A wide range of vehicle types can now be equipped with a reliable system offering cooling performance of up to 60,000 BTU's per hour with three different inwall evaporators, without sacrificing valuable interior space. Additionally, Spheros also offers two different ceiling-mounted evaporators CE 200 and CE 300, featuring strong airflow and cooling capacity of up to 70,000 BTU's per hour. With their high performance two skirt-mounted SC 220 and SC 230 condensers ensure low system pressure making them the ideal supplement to the high efficient Arcticsphere split system. All split components of the Arcticsphere line use very long-life motors and are built from durable yet lightweight materials to provide long service life without sacrificing performance. The system is particularly easy to operate with the Spheros dashboard mounted control unit, giving control over for three blower speeds and a variable temperature set point.
Trendsetting rooftop units
With its aerodynamic, compact design and a cooling capacity of 42,000 BTU's per hour, the new CC 145 rooftop unit is ideal for Class A school buses or buses in temperate climate zones. The three speed blowers in the CC 145 ensure a pleasant interior climate which the cool air can be distributed through from the evaporator blowers to either a center or side air ducts. Designed for both, a factory installation or aftermarket retrofit in school buses, the CC 145 rooftop unit is quick and easy to install weighting in at only 148 pounds. The larger CC 335/355 roof top units, were specially developed for use in humid, subtropical and desert climates. They will be available as single-loop or dual-loop versions. Their cooling capacity of 120,000 / 136,500 BTU's per hour guarantees a comfortable interior when outside temperatures reach up to 140° F (60°C). The six blowers run silently and enable an air flow rate of 3,700 CFM (6,300 m3/h). Despite this high capacity, the lightweight 340/365 pounds units have comparatively little impact on fuel consumption. All Spheros rooftop units provide performance, easy maintenance and low life-cycle costs.
