Customer needs in the focus of development
As early as in the development of the GADC already, the use from the application with an added value was in the focus: The idea came from a suggestion by a customer. The unit was developed with agile methods in continuous coordination with this customer and adjusted ideally to the specific requirements.
Inconspicuous elegance with added value
The essential novelty in this case remains invisible: With the option of the integrated condensation pump, the practical, very lean unit offers the possibility to let the condensation pipe disappear from the air-conditioned room into the intermediate ceiling. This is a significant simplification for the customer in terms of the expense of time, e.g. for cleaning.
Moreover, the DUAL Compact is the only dual discharge air cooler that is certified according to the HACCP hygiene concept – a further benefit for the customer, especially in sensitive food areas where strict hygiene requirements apply. The fact that the unit can also ensure comfortable temperatures in working areas with hardly any draught is merely one further plus of many.
