Key Features

At the heart of this incredible product are numerous standard features specifically integrated to offer optimal performance and accessibility:

  1. Refrigerant Components Out of Air Stream: This feature is designed to make service accessibility a breeze. By keeping the refrigerant components out of the air stream, maintenance and repair work are greatly simplified.

  2. Forward Curve Fan with Adjustable Pulley: This allows for efficient air flow distribution within the rink, thereby ensuring optimal dehumidification.

  3. Continuous Fan Operation: By keeping the fan operational continuously, the unit actively prevents humidity build-up during off cycles, maintaining a consistently comfortable environment within the arena.

  4. Humidistat: This component monitors the humidity level within the area and works to maintain a pre-set level.

  5. Innovative Demand Defrost System: This system initiates a quick and efficient defrost process when required, which is essential in low temperature settings like ice rinks.

  6. Heated Stainless Steel Drain Pan: This feature ensures efficient drainage of water, thus eliminating any potential for standing water which could lead to bacterial growth or cause other issues.

  7. True Sub-Cooling Circuit: This enhances the efficiency of the system by ensuring that the refrigerant is cooled below its saturation temperature before it enters the evaporator.

  8. Refrigerant High and Low Pressure Cut-Out Switches: These protect the system from extreme pressure fluctuations which could potentially damage the compressor or other components.

  9. External High and Low Pressure Service Access Valves and Sight Glass: These make it easy for service personnel to monitor the refrigeration system and perform routine maintenance or repairs.

  10. Thermostatic Expansion Valve (TXV): The TXV provides precise control over the amount of refrigerant flow into the evaporator, enhancing system efficiency and performance.

  11. Pre-Painted G90 Galvanized Casing: This gives the unit a robust and durable exterior that can withstand the rigors of commercial use.

  12. 2" Merv 8 Filter: This filter is designed to trap and hold particles and pollutants from the air, ensuring a clean and healthy environment within the arena.

Operational Specifications

In terms of its operating range, this ice rink dehumidifier can operate effectively in temperatures ranging from 34°F to 80°F DB, and relative humidity from 50% to 100%. It offers an external static pressure of up to 2.0".

Optional Features

To cater to specific needs, the dehumidifier offers several optional features:

  1. Aqua Aero Coated Coils: This unique coating protects the coil from corrosive elements, thereby enhancing the lifespan and efficiency of the unit.

  2. Non-Fused Disconnect: This provides an extra layer of safety by offering a means to disconnect the power to the unit for servicing.

  3. Compressor Sound Cover: This helps to reduce the operational noise of the unit, thereby creating a quieter environment within the arena.

  4. DDC Control with Humidistat: This provides precise control over the humidity within the arena.

  5. BACnet: This feature allows the unit to be integrated into a Building Automation and Control network, facilitating efficient management of the overall environment within the building.

  6. Air Supply Diffuser: This enhances the distribution of conditioned air throughout the arena.

  7. Plenum Fan Motor: This optional feature increases the unit's ability to handle higher pressures, providing more versatility and flexibility in the installation and setup.

Technical Specifications

The IRD-020F has a nominal air flow CFM of 1200, a belt drive forward curve blower, and a MERV 8 filter size of 24" x 20" x 2". Its compact dimensions of 36" X 24" X 32 1/2" make it an ideal fit for commercial spaces, while its weight of 385 lbs ensures stability during operation. The unit operates with a refrigerant charge of R448A, a green refrigerant, emphasizing our commitment to environmental sustainability.

Unique Benefits

  1. Full Reheat Coil: The inclusion of a full reheat coil ensures that no energy is wasted. The heat generated by the dehumidification process is reused to reheat the air before it's returned to the room.

  2. Scroll Compressor: Known for their reliability, efficiency, and quiet operation, scroll compressors enhance the overall performance of the unit.

  3. Hot Gas Defrost: This method of defrosting the evaporator coil is both efficient and quick, ensuring minimal downtime and maximum operational efficiency.

  4. High and Low Pressure Switch: This protects the compressor from extreme pressure changes, which could otherwise cause damage and shorten the lifespan of the unit.

  5. Thermostatic Expansion Valve: This provides precise control of the amount of refrigerant flow into the evaporator, improving the overall efficiency and performance of the system.
