Experts in advanced refrigeration and air-conditioning

Designed as a heavy-duty piece of equipment for automated operation in cold-storage facilities such as refrigerated storage rooms, refrigeration cabinets, and liquid coolers, among others, the SILENT Area SAPTXSs-18 is a robust and reliable condensing unit for medium to large-scale applications. Featuring a powerful maximum cooling capability of 16.7 kW at -5/32 ºC R449A, the SILENT Area SAPTXSs-18 presents an excellent thermodynamic potential. Devised and produced by Area Cooling, the unit is powered by a 380-volt 50 hertz 3-phase power supply and is compatible with different types of refrigerants: R134a, R404A, R448A, R449A and R513A. Beside their practical and convenient multi-refrigerant compatibility, one of the key assets of our SILENT condensing units is their reduced noise levels in comparison with traditional condensers. The acoustic insulators installed around the compressor compartment allow for minimal sound levels at only 44 dB, quite an accomplishment considering the unit’s significant horsepower.

Product description

The hefty and robust dimensions of the SILENT Area SAPTXSs-18 condensing unit make it an excellent accessory for medium to large-scale refrigeration systems requiring a powerful cooling capacity and secure reliability. Weighing a total of 310 kg, and measuring 461 mm in width, 1520 mm in length and 1493 mm in height, the unit is furnished. with two 630 mm fans, capable of a vigorous air flow rate of up to 11,140 m3/h. This air flow capacity is entirely adjustable by virtue of a speed regulator provided with the unit, conceived for maximum versatility and energetic efficiency. With a suction connection diameter of 1 1/8", and a liquid connector of 5/8", the unit’s liquid receiver tank has a capacity of 15.0 dm3, suitable for highly demanding installations. In addition, liquid receiver and liquid connectors comprise a shut-off valve for increased security, efficiency and precision. The Area SAPTXSs-18 silent condensing unit is meant to be operated with the compressor model C-SBN303H8G SG and with FV68S refrigerant oil. With regard to refrigerant gas compatibility, the Area SAPTXSs-18 may be filled with the following HFC blends: R134a, R404A, R448A, R449A and R513A. Operating this condensing unit with any other unspecified refrigerants will not only cause permanent damages, it will also void the warranty, and should be avoided at all times. The SILENT Area SAPTXSs-18 is certified with the highest European and global safety standards (CE, REACH, RoH and TUV), complies with the ECODESIGN label for sustainability, and features minimal sound levels at only 44 db, made possible by acoustic panels enclosing the unit’s compressor compartment.
