tent cooling

  • mobile air conditioner for tents AC-M16 AC-M16

Plug and play soft wall air-conditioning solution for temporary or transportable buildings and tents.

The AC-M16 Air Conditioner is a transportable unit, developed primarily to provide air conditioning in temporary or transportable buildings or tents. It is a small light weight unit made of aluminum and a rigid steel corner frame. The unit is designed to be placed outside, with supply air and return air ducted to the shelter. 

The function of the AC-M16 is based on a cooling circuit and two powerful fans. The evaporator section contains the evaporator and a radial fan, which draws warm internal air from the shelter, through the cold evaporator and blows out the cooled air through the side of the unit. The condenser section contains one condenser coil and a large axial fan, returning the heat taken from the internal air to the outside atmosphere.
