Skid-mounted package for single lift installation


07 July 2020
The skid-mounted Floway AHU and digital inverter condenser solution enables installers to locate the package on a rooftop with a single lift

Toshiba Carrier UK (TCUK) has developed a skid-mounted version of its high performance Floway Air Handling Unit (AHU) and direct expansion (DX) condenser package allowing installation in a single lift. 

The solution comprises a compact CIAT Floway Access AHU, incorporating a thermal wheel that operates with more than 80% efficiency, matched to a high efficiency Toshiba digital inverter condensing unit, in a single package that comes fully wired, charged with refrigerant and commissioned ready for installation.

Paul Smith, Sales Director for TCUK Applied Products, said: “Demand for AHUs with integrated DX coils has been increasing. However, systems with components from different manufacturers can be difficult to configure. We solved this a couple of years ago with the launch of Floway DX, which seamlessly combines CIAT Floway with Toshiba’s highly energy efficient Digital Inverter Condenser in an integrated package.

“With the launch of the skid-mounted version, installers have the additional benefit of being able to lift a single piece of equipment onto a roof in a single step, rather than having to manage and lift several separate items. As a result of its plug-and-play design, it can then be installed quickly and easily, and be in action rapidly. This saves even more time on site, while retaining all the benefits of support from a single supplier.”

TCUK installs interconnecting pipework in factory conditions and pressure tests every system before delivery to site, ensuring they arrive in perfect condition and operate properly. Controls are integrated into the package and come housed in a weather-proof enclosure.

Available in five sizes, the skid-mounted systems deliver air flows of up to 2.36m3/sec and come in capacities up to 46kW in reverse cycle cooling and heating.
