Low Profile Unit Cooler (Models KL4; KL6)

Low Profile Unit Coolers feature an air draw-through design and are available in air, electric and hot gas defrost configurations. We’ve taken these all-purpose unit coolers to the next level with the release of the Next-Gen All Temp models. The units feature a new fan guard design and deep draw venturi to achieve optimal airflow, easy access for serviceability, and can be used with multiple refrigerants.

There are a wide array of sizes available with capacities ranging from 2,700 to 45,900 BTU/h at a 10° TD. One through six fan models are available with air flow spanning a range of 800 to 4,650 CFM.

The embossed aluminum casing is lightweight yet durable. Each fan section is baffled to prevent short cycling of the discharge air. The units are designed to mount flush to the ceiling and are compliant with NSF requirements. The top pan includes 1/2” wide slotted mounting points to simplify installation. The removable drain fitting is installed into the bottom of the drain pan for easy field connection and it can be quickly replaced without changing out the entire drain pan. End panels can be slid out from the front of the unit providing easy serviceability from the front or side of the unit, allowing convenient access to the roomy electrical and piping compartments.

Copper hairpins consist of high efficiency 3/8” enhanced copper tubes which are staggered and mechanically expanded into corrugated aluminum fins achieving maximum heat transfer while reducing refrigerant charge. Die formed fin collars provide even fin spacing. Models are available in 4 and 6 fins per inch. Sweat connections are standard on all models.

Standard models feature highly efficient Electronically Commutated (EC) motors that can be field or factory wired for dual speed operation. Dual Speed EC motors are available for 115V or 208/230V and are compliant with California Title 24 regulations. PSC motors are also available for 115V, 208/230V or 460V requirements. All motors include thermal overload protection.

Units are available as fully configurable (no mounted accessories) or they can be pre-assembled with the most requested options pre-installed at the factory.
Pre-assembly Code:
  • Blank = Configurable (no factory installed options)
  • T = Factory mounted mechanical TXV
  • L = Factory mounted mechanical TXV, Liquid Line Solenoid and mechanical T-Stat
  • M = Master Configuration with mounted mechanical TXV, mechanical T-Stat, LLS and copper Tee
Heavy duty 12” aluminum fans are balanced to provide vibration-free operation. New and improved black plastic fan guard design and deep draw venturi provide an optimal air pattern.

Available for 115V, 115-230V (Air Defrost EC motor only), 208/230V and 460V (see pages 5 through 9). A large electrical compartment is supplied internal to the unit to house the electrical components and is easily accessible by removing the slide out end panel. All models are UL and cUL listed and are available for 60 Hz or 50 Hz applications.

Air Defrost:
Air Defrost models (KL6A) are designed for use in coolers 35°F and warmer. All components are factory wired to convenient screw-type terminal strips.

Electric Defrost:
Electric Defrost models (KL*E) are designed for use in coolers and freezers between 34°F to -20°F. Defrost heaters are mounted on the air intake side of the unit for optimal performance and easy maintenance. A lower heater is installed inside the drain pan for fast, reliable drainage. A defrost termination fan delay thermostat (DTFD) terminates the defrost cycle when the temperature is satisfied. The fan delay allows the warm coil to cool after a defrost cycle prior to the fans turning on. A heater safety thermostat is installed to prevent overheating. HOT GAS

Hot Gas Defrost:
There are two types of Hot Gas Defrost models available: 3-pipe Hot Gas models (KL*H) and 2-pipe Hot Gas Reverse Cycle units (KL*G). Hot Gas Defrost models are designed for use in coolers and freezers between 34°F and -20°F. All Hot Gas units include a fixed DTFD factory wired and an electric drain pan heater
