Modine Redesigns Airedale SchoolMate® Packaged Ventilation

Modine introduces the redesigned Airedale SchoolMate® water/ground-source heat pump packaged system. The SchoolMate offers efficiency, noise reduction and a small footprint, providing great flexibility for school installations. It is offered in six capacities, from 24-60 MBH in two cabinet sizes. A key improvement of the SchoolMate is the use of Modine’s patented CF® microchannel evaporator coil which replaces a much larger coil traditionally used in these types of systems. Combined with a reduced refrigerant charge and airside pressure drop, this 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 – factory-installed in the SchoolMate unit. The result is a compact model that does not require a plenum for additional heat and reduced installation time. Other standard features include modulating, electronically-commutated fan motors; use of R-410A refrigerant; availability of combination energy recovery and economizer modules, ... Read More
