Today, Modine Manufacturing Company (NYSE: MOD) formally introduced the redesigned Airedale ClassMate ® single packaged vertical DX cooling and heat pump system. ClassMate offers efficiency, noise reduction and a smaller footprint, providing the greatest flexibility for school installations. Modine offers the ClassMate in four capacities, from 24-60 MBH, and in two cabinet sizes. Also, Modine has boosted the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) up to 12% over the existing ClassMate HE for Integrated Part-Load Values up to 16.1.
A key ClassMate improvement is the use of Modine’s own, patented CF ® microchannel evaporator coil, which replaces a much larger coil traditionally used in these types of systems. This technology, combined with a reduced refrigerant charge and airside pressure drop, allows extra space to be opened up for multiple supplemental heat exchangers, such as a hot gas reheat coil, hot-water coil or electric heat elements, to be factory-installed in the ClassMate unit. The result is a more compact model that does not require a plenum for additional heat and reduced installation time.
Other standard features of the new ClassMate include: modulating, electronically-commutated fan motors; availability of combination energy recovery and economizer modules, permitting either heat recovery for outside air or fully modulating 100% economizer; maximized capability with the Modine Controls System; front-access to all components; decreased sound and power output; use of R410a refrigerant; and modulating economizer damper for 100% free-cooling and fresh-air requirements.
Optional ClassMate features include: factory-supplied BACnet or LonWorks compatible controls; hot water heating coil and valve/piping packages for hydronic heating options with top or bottom connections; and demand control ventilation.“We are very excited about this significant redesign of our ClassMate product,” said Matt McBurney, Modine’s Vice President – Commercial Products Group. “With this, Modine continues to demonstrate our significant capability in the packaged ventilation market and our commitment to continuous product development.”
