Truck air-conditioning systems: Compact Cooler


The optimum retrofitting solution for air-conditioning. The Compact Cooler Series is a space-saving, retrofittable rooftop air-conditioning system for cooling the driver’s cabin and passenger compartment of all vehicles with cabin volumes up to 10 m³.

The Compact Cooler 4 E represents an independent solution with integrated electric motor which drives the system’s own compressor with the help of a V-belt. Thus, it only needs to be connected to the vehicle battery. The Compact Cooler 5 Lite is conceived for integration in the primary cooling circuit of the vehicle and it distinguishes itself through an especially compact structure, which was implemented by avoiding the condenser including fan.  For  Compact Coolers 5 and 8 it is preferable to install additional compressors in the vehicle . This guarantees the full system capacity at all times, and operation independent of the primary cooling circuit of the vehicle is also possible. E-Unit means the electric motor / compressor unit installed on a robust metal frame including plastic housing. The electric motor drives the compressor over a belt. For example, the Compact Cooler 5 can be switched simultaneously with the E-Unit.

Thanks to the robust structure and the use of latest technologies, the Compact Coolers fulfill all common quality requirements of the vehicle manufacturers and correspond to the current EU directives. Essential characteristics of the robust design are the metal base frame and the refrigerant circuit made fully of aluminum. The customer benefits from an increased life span and reliability as well as from reduced maintenance expenditure.
