Hammond Air Conditioning introduces battery-operated rooftop A/C system - Arctic Breeze 12000 AND 18000 Hammond Air Conditioning is pleased to announce the arrival of Hammond's next generation of marine, truck, RV and heavy equipment air conditioning - the self-contained, battery-driven 12 or 24 volt rooftop ARCTIC BREEZE 12000 (BTU) and ARCTIC BREEZE 18000 (BTU) systems. "The ARCTIC BREEZE rooftop unit is the ideal solution wherever there is a need for an electric, battery-driven air conditioning system that doesn't require an engine running. In many instances, while excavator or wheel-loader operators are waiting on trucks, they can turn off their machines for a short period of time and stay comfortable without running the engine and hour meter while they wait. The systems are also used in underground mining with 4-wheeled 'people-runners'." The ARCTIC BREEZE rooftop units are robust and designed for the roughest of work environments. The main chassis is constructed of 1/8" heavy gauge aluminum providing a rugged, durable framework to mount all the system components. The system's tough polyethylene shell has been designed to resist corrosion. Hammond does not provide the batteries 40 ACTION * June 2015 for the units, but will make recommendations based on the job application. Batteries are also available through Hammond's network of dealers. The units use weather pack electrical connections and tinned wire for long, maintenance-free service life. Excellent air circulation throughout the cab is provided by easily accessible louvers and controls. The units also offer quick access for service and cleaning. Sales and distribution of the new batterypowered ARCTIC BREEZE rooftop systems are being handled by Hammond Air Conditioning's Ingersoll, Ontario head office. 2. 3.. 4. Tracer Products has introduced Tracerline® Cool Seal™ A/C Leak Sealer, a unique additive that seals slow, pesky leaks in compressors, condensers, evaporators, accumulators, O-rings and hoses ─ quickly and permanently. Cool Seal's non-polymer, oil-soluble formula is safe for A/C system components and recovery equipment. It seals leaks as large as 0.020 inch (0.5 mm) and is compatible with all popular refrigerants. Cool Seal is a practical alternative to expensive parts replacement on older, high-mileage vehicles. It can remain safely in the system to guard against future leaks, making it ideal for preventive maintenance. Cool Seal can be injected into an A/C system using various delivery methods. The TP2210CS Cool Seal™ Syringe Kit includes a prefilled, disposable syringe, hose/coupler with check valve and a purge fitting. It services one vehicle. The TP-2270-0102CS Cool Seal™ BigEZ™ Cartridge consists of a large, prefilled cartridge, which works with BigEZ™, EZShot™ and most other caulking gun-style injectors. It can also be used with the EZ-Ject™ injector using an adapter and hose/coupler. A full BigEZ cartridge services two vehicles. The most economical way to add Cool Seal is the TP-2200-0102CS Cool Seal bottle, which requires a refillable injector (TP-9882). A full bottle services two vehicles.
