Examples of applications

AUSTRAL - Unité HVAC monobloc 'casquette'

Manitou M forklift

This all-terrain forklift has very little available space in the cabin. The AUSTRAL monoblock solution made it possible to install a complete system that was capable of providing the high power levels required due to the large glass windows.

Application Split system HVAC

HVAC Split System

This solution has been designed and developed principally for use on port handling equipment. It includes an "off-road" technology on the condenser that provides resistance against vibrations and dust. The evaporator has been insulated to allow it to withstand significant heat and maintain air conditioning performance.
This solution is designed for applications in harsh environments and can be installed on machines working in 50% humidity in temperatures ranging from -15 °C to 43 °C.

Intégration SKIMO sur chariot élévateur

Forklift trucks

The SKIMO is an electric, monoblock air conditioner designed for machines with no free space in the cabin or engine compartment.
Efficient, compact, easy to install and totally autonomous, the SKIMO can be modified to fit most machines without the need to mount a compressor on the engine.
