Clinical facilities frequently have localized cooling needs that cannot be met by the
central air conditioning system. For example, new diagnostic equipment that gives
off more heat than the central air conditioning systems was originally designed to
handle. This can create uncomfortable conditions for patients or even create less
than ideal temperatures for operating the specialized equipment.
Air Cooled portable air conditioners can provide a comfortable setting for patients
undergoing MRIs, CAT scans, and other procedures with cool, refreshing
temperatures. For emergencies, these systems portability makes it easy to move
cooling power to where it’s needed.
Water cooled portable air conditioner units are uniquely positioned to provide the
perfect solution to today’s hospital spot cooling requirements.
During the era of the COVID-19, a lot of hospitals are employing negative air
machines to help mitigate the spread of the air-borne viruses and contaminants from
one room to another. Unfortunately, when using a negative air machine, you are by
design, exhausting more air from a room than is being delivered to a room. This
overwhelms the existing air conditioning system and supplemental air conditioning is
needed to maintain a comfortable space within the hospital. An air cooled portable
unit, would not operate properly under a negative air situation because it needs to
contend with the negative air machine for condenser air. Most air cooled units are
not designed for these levels of negative pressure and do not have a powerful
enough blower to perform properly.
One great function of a water cooled air conditioners is that it can operate perfectly
in negative air environments.
The OceanAire water cooled unit does not require condenser air. Therefore, the need
for air in a negative-pressure room is eliminated, allowing the water-cooled air
conditioner to cool the air within the existing room.
Under negative air conditions, hospitals need to cool the air drawn into the building,
known as make-up air. Since the conditioned air is being exhausted from the building
by the negative air machines, supplemental cooling equipment is needed to maintain
a comfortable atmosphere.
An OceanAire portable water-cooled unit is perfect solution for cooling hospital
lobbies, patient rooms, breakrooms, waiting rooms, MRI rooms, X-ray rooms and so
much more. Every hospital room has a water source (sink, bathroom) where you can
attach our water hoses to and bring water to the unit and drain the water as well.
Because OceanAire water-cooled units recirculate the existing air in the room, they
do not spread or exhaust any air out of the room.
