OceanAire’s water cooled portable air conditioner units offer an extremely efficient and effective way to control the climate in any size room. Because water cooled air conditioners do not discharge large amounts of heat, they do not require exhaust ducting and are used to great effect in enclosed areas.

How do water cooled units work?

Portable air conditioner units that are water cooled simply require access to an appropriate power source, a source of water and a drain. Our units come equipped with hoses which will connect to any standard sink, but can also be used in janitor sinks or used with any other type of waste water outlet.

There are many applications where a standard air cooled air conditioner cannot be used. Because they require ventilation to discharge the heat that they generate, ducts must be run through windows or into floated ceilings or other appropriate outlets, like a warehouse or other large spaces. This makes water cooled air conditioners far more versatile than air cooled portable air conditioners.

What are the advantages of water cooled units?

No exhaust / ventilation / hot air outlet required
No negative air pressure caused by ducting
Water cooled air conditioners work better in areas with high ambient temperatures (because they use water, not surrounding air to cool the condenser)
They can be used in extremely hot areas – hotter than air cooled units can
Offer a greater cooling capacity (5 ton air cooled single phase units require 50 amps / 5 ton water cooled require 30 amps
