MobilePac FAQ'S

 

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.
TOP OF PAGE

How often will I need to empty the tank?

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 winter months.

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 24/7?

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.
TOP OF PAGE

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 angle.

Do I need to vent the unit to the outside?

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.
TOP OF PAGE

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 calculation.
TOP OF PAGE

How cold can I get my room/tent?

There is no way to tell. The MobilePac unit will give you approximately a 20F temperature differential for instance, if your room is 80F, the unit will deliver approximately 60F air. This does not mean that your room will be 60F. . . that all depends on the heat load in the room/tent.
TOP OF PAGE

Can I plug into an extension cord?

The MobilePac is hard-wired and we do not recommend that you operate the MobilePac unit using an extension cord.
TOP OF PAGE

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.
TOP OF PAGE

What other accessory items do I need for my application?

The MobilePac has many options and accessories to keep your hot spots cool.
TOP OF PAGE

Who can I get to install my MobilePac unit?

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.
