How loud are the MobilePac Units?
The MobilePac units are designed for outdoor and special
events applications and we use advanced compressor technology
to further reduce mechanical noise. The blowers or fans are
all reciprocating type and reduce the air noise of the unit.
There is no dB rating for the MobilePac because there are to
many variables involved with this unit.
Does the unit make
water? What happens with the condensate?
Yes, the MobilePac are true air conditioners and some
moisture is removed from the air which results in condensate.
The condensate collects in a pan and is then pumped out of the
unit through a condensate pump.
How often will I need to empty the
There is no tank on the MobilePac, but there is a
condensate pump to discharge the condensate to a drain line.
Condensate generation is based on various temperature and
humidity levels as well as user installation and control
settings. In the warm, humid summer months the amount of
condensate generated will be greater than in the cool, dry
How large is the condensate tank?
Again there is not a tank but a condensate pump. The
water will collect in a condensate drain pan with-in the
MobilePac unit, drain into the pump reservoir and from there
the condensate is pumped out of the unit through 3/8"
vinyl tubing. Now you can run your condensate line to a
drain, sink or to the outside.
What if I need to run my MobilePac unit
The MobilePac unit has a built-in condensate pump that can
be used to allow continuous uninterrupted cooling. The pump
has a 20’ lift capability.
How long can the
condensate line be?
The MobilePac unit has a built-in condensate
pump that comes with enough 3/8" plastic tubing to reach
outside the unit through the knock out hole. You may
require more tubing than what is supplied with the pump.
You can either attach the new section of tubing to the
supplied tubing with a coupler or purchase a new section of
tubing to fit the required length of your condensate drain
line. You can go as far as you need to with the tubing
as long as you keep the tubing sloping down at an angle.
Again if you need to go a long distance to your drain then we
recommend that you go up as much as you can (up to 20') then
go towards your drain with the tubing sloping down at an
Do I need to vent the unit to the
No, you do not need to vent the MobilePac unit to the
outside. If you are cooling an enclosed environment you do
need to discharge the condenser air (warm air) out of the
space you are trying to cool. You can attach the warm
air duct to the unit by using the quick connect flange or if
the MobilePac is outside, then the condenser air can free
blow. If the MobilePac sets outside the application then
the cold air can be ducted into the application.
What kind of maintenance is required?
Unit maintenance is quick and easy. The MobilePac series
has a totally sealed refrigeration system. It should not be
necessary to recharge your unit. The only regular preventative
maintenance is cleaning the filters. You want to make sure
that you keep the drain line clear on the condensate pump.
What do I need to do if I am going to
store the unit?
Before storing the unit you want to ensure the evaporator
coil is dry and the condensate is emptied from the unit. First
you would operate the MobilePac unit in the fan mode for about
5 minutes to dry out the evaporator coil and get all the
moisture off of the coil. Make sure the condensate is emptied,
turn off the unit, and wipe down the cabinet with a soft cloth
and mild detergent. Your MobilePac unit will be in prime shape
when your next cooling need arises.
MobilePac Application FAQ'S
How large of an area
can I cool with the MobilePac?
That depends on what is in the area you are
trying to cool. All air conditioning units are rated in BTU,
or British Thermal Unit, which is a unit of measure. There are
12,000 BTU to 1 ton of air conditioning. For equipment cooling
we need to determine the amount of power being used by the
equipment in the room so we can do a basic heat load
How cold can I get my
There is no way to tell. The MobilePac unit
will give you approximately a 20°F temperature differential
– for instance, if your room is 80°F, the unit will deliver
approximately 60°F air. This does not mean that your room
will be 60°F. . . that all depends on the heat load in the
Can I plug into an
The MobilePac is hard-wired and we do not
recommend that you operate the MobilePac unit using an
Do I need a dedicated
circuit to run the MobilePac unit?
The MobilePac is hard-wired and is a
mechanical device and could potentially put noise onto the
line when the compressor starts and stops.
What other accessory items
do I need for my application?
The MobilePac has many options and accessories
to keep your hot spots cool.
Who can I get to install my
The MobilePac unit is designed for quick
set-up. A local contractor or electrician would be able
to install your MobilePac unit by providing the proper
electrical power and connecting the unit to the power supply.
You may also require the services of a handyman or plumber,
depending on the location of your condensate drain line for
your condensate pump.
