Split-Gas Air Conditioning
For Boats Up to 24 Meters (80 Feet)

Split air conditioning systems have the condensing unit and air handler installed in different locations.

  • The condensing unit is mounted in the engine room or other mechanical space.
  • The air handler (also called the evaporator) is installed in the living area. Two air handlers can connect to one condensing unit.
Split systems are found on boats up to 24 meters (80 feet), limited only by the number of condensing units that will fit and by the 15 meter (50 foot) maximum length of copper tubing between the condensing unit and air handler.

Split system advantages:
  • Less space needed in the living area for the air handlers.
  • Quieter because the compressor is in the engine room.
  • A wide selection of air handler types.
CoolBreeze Air Conditioners CoolBreeze
You're Cool On Deck With Jets of Chilled Air

CoolBreeze provides an efficient, compact solution for generating cool air outside the living space by cooling the people not the area. Enhance your enjoyment of outdoor dining areas, lounge areas, and sport-fishing decks while CoolBreeze's directional jets blow chilled air right on you. To maintain your yacht's aesthetic appeal, CoolBreeze uses rigid, small-diameter ducts that are easily hidden. The only visible parts of the system are the one-inch directional jets that concentrate the chilled air into high-velocity streams that cool the people at whom they are aimed.

EBDE Series R-410A Evaporators EBDE Series R-410A Evaporators
Multi-Ton Evaporating Units for Split-Gas A/C Systems

EBDE series evaporators are draw-through, ductable cooling and heating units with variable speed blower and enclosed in an insulated aluminum housing with integrated condensate drain pan. EBDE units are designed to be installed in a cabinet or other enclosed space with discharge air ducted to grilles high in the cabin. EBDE models are available in capacities from 30,000 to 72,000 BUT/hr, and can be used with Cruisair Emerald R-410A condensing units. 230V/60Hz models are standard, but 50Hz models are available by special order.

EBE Series R-410A Evaporators EBE Series R-410A Evaporators
The New Standard In High-Performance Evaporators

Compact EBE split evaporators are draw-through, ductable cooling units with reverse-cycle heating. Featuring a rotatable, high-efficiency permanent split capacitor (PSC) blower in which the motor is concealed, EBE series evaporators are available in capacities from 6K to 36K BTU/hr. EBHE units have electric heat. The EBE Series was designed for installation low in a closet, cabinet, or other enclosed space, with discharge air ducted to one or more grilles high in the cabin.

EBLE Low-Profile Series Evaporators EBLE Low-Profile Series Evaporators
Dual-Blower Units for Height-Restrictive Spaces

Cruisair's EBLE low-profile, dual-blower series of ductable evaporators are available in a wide range of capacities and configurations. Available in capacities from 12,000 to 36,000 BTU/hr, EBLE units are designed for installations where there is limited vertical space, such as beneath a seat or bunk or in overhead spaces. Standard EBLE units consist of a low-profile coil mounted on a deep drain pan with two high-efficiency permanent split capacitor (PSC) blowers drawing air across the coil. The variable-speed blower motors are internal to reduce noise and depth. EBLEP models have an insulated return-air plenum for overhead applications. EBHLE models have auxiliary electric heat and are available with insulated return-air plenum (EBHLEP models).

Modulating DX Evaporators Modulating DX Evaporators
Ductable Cooling-Only Units

EMB and EHMB are ductable cooling units with built-in refrigerant solenoid valves and high-efficiency blowers. They are used with RM modulating condensing units, which allow up to five independent temperature-controlled zones on one condenser. They are designed to be installed low in a closet or cabinet, with discharge air ducted to grills high in the cabin. Units are available in capacities from 4,000 to 16,000 Btu/hr.

R Series Condensers R Series Condensers
With High Efficiency Compressors

R-type marine HVAC condensing units are seawater-cooled, reverse-cycle heat pumps for cooling and heating in marine applications. These condensing units can be installed with up to 2 cooling units, where the total capacity is equal to the condensing unit capacity. Units can be installed in the vessel's engine room or other mechanical space, and are not affected by moisture, normal vibration, or ambient temperatures up to 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). No ventilation is required. Three different models are available to accommodate different types of controls. "R" uses the 3-knob rotary switch assembly. "RX" uses the SMX II digital control. "RN" uses the SMX Net digital control.

R Series Condensers REU Evaporating Units
With High Efficiency Blowers

REU remote evaporators are draw-through, ductable cooling units with rotatable, variable-speed blowers and integral water-displacing condensate pans. Featuring a high-efficiency permanent split capacitor (PSC) blower in which the motor is concealed, the REU series is available in capacities from 4-16K BTU/hr (20, 24, 30, and 36k units use a shaded pole motor). The REU series was designed for installation low in a closet, cabinet, or other enclosed space, with discharge air ducted to one or more grilles high in the cabin. One or two evaporators can be used with a single condensing unit of matched capacity. Please contact the Applications department for assistance in design prior to installation.

RM Modulating Condensing Units RM Modulating Condensing Units
Capable of Cooling 5 Zones

The new RM model remote modulating condensing units are the next generation of direct-expansion, cooling-only air conditioning units designed to run multiple cooling units (evaporators) with up to five independent zones. Models are available in capacities of 24, 30 & 42,000 BTU/Hr. Total cooling unit capacity should be within 15% of the condensing unit capacity. The RM Series' high-efficiency compressors deliver full capacity even under heavy loads. The newly designed, one-piece electrical box with 3' (1m) cable can be remote mounted simply by removing one screw. Additional service ports have been added for ease of charging and servicing. The one-piece chassis/pan has two new drain locations. New style hold-down brackets secure all four corners and allow for easier installation and removal.
TurboVap DX Evaporator Series TurboVap DX Evaporator Series
Reduced Size, Noise & Amperage

The TurboVap Series of direct expansion (DX) split-system evaporators is based on the revolutionary engineering advancements of the award-winning Turbo self-contained air conditioning system. Featuring a rust-free molded composite drain pan, condensate water is rapidly removed at one of two easy-to-plumb drain locations. The pan also has innovatively designed anti-slosh ridges and positive-flow channels to ensure condensate does not spill even in the roughest seas. TurboVap evaportors work with R-417A, R-22, and Emerald R-410A condensers.
