Trans/Air announces availability of three new solutions

Posted on February 19, 2015

Dallastown, Pa.’s Trans/Air Manufacturing Corp. announced the immediate availability of three new solutions: the TA17 C-5 Transit Style Climate Control System; TA-20 Rooftop Product Line; and stainless steel skirt mount condensers.

The TA17C-5 is designed to satisfy the requirements of 30-foot to 40-foot rear-engine transit, tour, school buses and trolleys in severe-duty applications. When paired with a 655cc transit compressor, the TA17C-5 system can yield 111K (SAE) / 171K (IMACA) Btu/hr.

The TA17 evaporator is constructed with heavy-duty materials and has 24-volt heavy-duty motors and large diameter blower wheels mounted outboard to inject air directly into the ducts. The C-5 condenser has five high performance axial fans with a corrosion resistant coil.

Controls are fully functional with digital cabin set point. The 655cc transit style compressor is equipped with an un-loader, transit clutch, and high and low pressure switches. The TA17 can be equipped with an optional R120 rooftop condenser, is compatible with all OEM supplied ducts and also can be mounted in freeblow configuration.

The TA-20 rooftop product line features rooftop units characterized by powerful cooling capacity as well as a distinctive aerodynamic design. Rated at 34K BTU/hr, the TA-20 product line is ideal for a variety of applications, including small commercial bus, Type A school bus and work vans such as Sprinter, ProMaster and Ford Transit.

Units feature an aluminum body encased by ultramodern, UV-protected ABS acrylic cover and evaporator blowers oriented to support center aisle ducting or freeblow air distribution with maximum air flow. The TA-20 can be configured as a Tie-In or Super system and is available with optional heat and electronic controls.

The skirt mounted condensers with the latest technology, corrosion resistant, all-aluminum parallel flow condenser coils and high-efficiency, low-amperage draw condenser fans, are now available with stainless steel housing.

The new stainless steel design provides maximum corrosion protection in harsh road environments. Stainless steel condensers are available in two (SMC2S) and three (SMC3L) 10-inch fan configurations. Corresponding stainless steel stacking kits are available for applications where skirt mounting space is limited.

Trans/Air manufactures a full line of climate control systems. Units, parts, service, warranty, and new or aftermarket installations are available through factory owned operations or a network of distributors throughout North America.
