ACUs suitable for a wide range of applications. Slimline-ACU range - compressor cooled ACUs for general purpose applications - small footprint.
More powerful LN2 version maintains small footprint but is suitable for more demanding applications. For High Performance requirements, the Typhoon range is designed to exceed the toughest specifications.

ACUs are normally connected to custom insulated enclosures via insulate hoses but Sharetree also offers our proprietary “Direct Connect” solution for improved performance (see brochure).

Air Conditioning Units

Sharetree Air Conditioning Units (ACUs) are specifically designed for recirculating conditioned air through a variety of custom built product enclosures, or directly to products. ACUs are used where a standard test chamber cannot easily be fitted around the product. Custom designed product enclosures can also be supplied, if required. Remote sensing ensures good thermal control of the test enclosure.

The SlimLine ACUs offer an economical answer for many applications and feature wide temperature and humidity control options, with remote sensing at the load, if required. Compressor cooling is used for –30⁰C (single-stage) and –60⁰C (cascade) models and liquid nitrogen (LN2) cooling for the –80⁰C model.

The Sharetree SIMPLEtouch touch-screen programmer is now standard on all models. This simplifies the operator interface and enables complex profiles to be programmed, data logged, and displayed graphically. (See the separate SIMPLEtouch brochure).

Interface options

The standard interface to the custom enclosure is by means of flexible insulated hoses. An alternative Direct Connection arrangement is possible with some enclosures (see above). The inlet and outlet vents are ported from the bottom of the ACU directly into the custom enclosure to give the maximum possible airflow and even better control.

Air Conditioning Units

Sharetree Typhoon Air Conditioning Units (ACUs) are specifically designed for re-circulating conditioned air through a variety of custom built product enclosures, or directly to products. ACUs are used where a standard test chamber cannot easily be fitted around the product. Custom designed product enclosures can also be supplied if required.

These versatile ACUs feature wide temperature and humidity control options, with 2-stage temperature sensing for accurate control.

The systems are fitted with our SIMPLEtouch touchscreen programmer to simplify the operator interface and enable complex profiles to be programmed, data logged, and displayed graphically (see brochure)
