Atlas releases 12-ton portable air conditioner
A portable air conditioner that provides 144,000 BTU/hr of cooling yet rolls through a standard doorway is being brought to the market by Atlas Sales & Rental. Only 34 ins. wide, the 12-ton Atlas PACslim can be used in offices, computer server rooms, event tents and other indoor/outdoor locations.
High-efficiency radial blowers with built-in variable speed motors provide uniform airflow across the evaporator coil of the portable cooler, according to Atlas. The blowers are designed to operate at higher pressure with less turbulence and noise than standard fans. Combined with the use of acoustical insulation in the evaporator section, the blowers ensure a low sound level for a unit of this size.
The PACSlim-12 portable air conditioner has an operating range of 45 degrees Fahrenheit to 115 degrees Fahrenheit. It is manufactured in the United States and is available exclusively from Atlas for rental or purchase.
Atlas Sales & Rentals is a national distributor of portable cooling and heating products. It maintains company-owned, full-service offices around the country, each stocked with a wide inventory of equipment available for sale or rental.
