Table of Contents

Marine packaged air conditioner is the cooling device which can deal the air inside the chamber directly, has features of the new design, convenient operation, stable run, safety & reliable and easy maintenance, widely used for passenger ships, cargo ships, navies, and offshore platform, etc.

Attentions for installation

  • The packaged air conditioner should be laid the wires as per the shipyard drawing and install as per the operation manual by a professional person.
  • The air inlet & outlet should be away from the barrier to ensure the air blowing through the chamber.
  • The installation location should leave sufficient space for commissioning and maintenance.
  • The water inlet & outlet pipe of the condenser should be connected as per the shown mark on the plant.
  • The water inlet & outlet pipe should be fitted with a valve for cleaning it.
  • The packaged air conditioner has a condensate water connection to ensure the water drain out thoroughly.
  • The safety valve outlet should be connected with a copper tube and lead to the outside.

The checked items after installation

Items to be checked Accidents due to improper installation
Whether the installation is firm? The plant may have some vibration or noise.
Whether the condensate water drain out well? The plant may have some drops and wet the floor.
Whether the voltage comply with the nameplate? The plant may have some malfunctions or parts damaged.
Whether the water inlet & outlet pipe of condenser connects correctly? The plant can not work or have high pressure alarm.
Whether the cables comply with the drawings? Cables will be burnt or the plant have malfunctions.
Whether air inlet & outlet has barrier? It wll cause insufficient cooling capacity(heating capacity)

Attentions of operation

Confirm the power supply wire is connected firmly, otherwise it will cause electric shock or fire, don’t damage the wire or use other type cable.

Don’t put your fingers or bar into air outlet of indoor unit, otherwise it will damage the AC or personnel injury.

04-Don't-put-your-fingers-or-bar-into-air-outlet-of-indoor-unit

Regulae the setting temperature to proper value. 

05-Regulae-the-setting-temperature-to-proper-value

Don’t pour the water to AC or flush it by water, otherwise it will result in malfunction or cause electric shock. 

Notice for operation

  • Cooling mode  When cooling, the compressor runs, the fan also runs, indoor ventilates, AHU will absorb the inside heat and reduce the ambient temperature.
  • Heating mode   The fan runs, electric heating will work, indoor ventilates, Packaged air conditioner releases the heat and increases the ambient temperature.
  • Anti cold air:    Under”heating” mode, the fan will not start immediately, it will blow out heat air after one minute of preheating. 
  • Unmormal working conditions of Packaged air conditioner 
    • “Auto”mode, indoor temperature is beyond 24℃, AC will auto begin to cool, when indoor temperature is lower than 24℃, AC will auto begin to heat. 
    • “Cooling” mode, indoor temperature is lower than 18℃, it will not cool.
    • When humidity is above 80%(door and window open), it continues to cool, air outlet will have dew drops.
    • Start/stop instructions of compressor
  • To prolong the compressor life, computer board will auto control the start/stop of compressor, it will appear when ambient temperature reaches to setting value, it will stop with time delay. When protection shutdown appears, compressor will start with 3min delay even the malfunctions are reset.

4 How to adjust the expansion valve, clean the expansion valve filter mesh and change the expansion valve?

The needed material and tools: screwdriver and spanner
Disassemble the panel of the air inlet, screw off the cap of the expansion valve, when seeing the flow adjust nut, use spanner or cross screwdriver to adjust, in clockwise, the flow will be reduced, in counter-clockwise, the flow will be increase.

Clean the expansion valve filter mesh

The needed material and tools: screwdriver, spanner, hex spanner, vacuum pump, liquid pipe and short jumper
Disassemble the panel of air inlet, screw off the plastic cover of high & low pressure controller, short connect the two terminals of controller, close the outlet valve of condenser, select cooling mode, compressor will run, when low pressure gauge indicates 0.01Mpa, it will shutdown and cut off the power. Use spanner to disassemble the nut at inlet of expansion valve, separate the copper tube and expansion valve, now you can see that the filter mesh is inserted at the inlet of expansion valve, draw out the filter mesh and clean it. Reinstall it after cleaned. Open the liquid valve, connect the liquid pipe and vacuum pump, start the pump, when low pressure gauge reduces to , then close the liquid valve, open the outlet valve of condenser. Use the soap water to check the disassembled connections to check the leak.

Maintenance

Clean

After AC is put into the run, clean the condenser 2-3 times every year.

Clean method: stop the cooling water pump, close the water inlet & outlet valve, screw off the water drain valve of condenser to discharge all water, use wrench to loose all the bolts on both sides of condenser to remove the cover, then you can see a copper tube, use soft brush to stretch into the tube and drag back and forth to clean it. When reinstall, pay attention to the direction of cover and cushion, wrong installation will make AC not work or high pressure alarm.

 

When AC is not used, close the water inlet & outlet valve of condenser to drain the cooling water inside the condenser to prevent the freeze broken.

Filter mesh at air inlet should be cleaned in schedul, too much dust on the mesh will reduce the air flow and result in sufficient cooling(heating) capacity.

 

Clean method:disassemble the air inlet panel of AC, use dust colletor to aim at the filter mesh, open the dust collector, reset it after cleaned.

 

 

 

Rust proof 

After AC is run for a time, the unit will have some rust, customer should be cleaned frequently, repair the damaged paint. 

Maintenance method: use sand paper to polish the rusted place, use the same paint to repair.

 

Malfunction removal

Malfunction: open-air switch, the control panel has no display.

power-monitor

Removal: disassemble the fixing screw of the terminal box and open it, measure the voltage of terminals L1, L2 and L3 with a multimeter, if it is zero, the power should be supplied by switchboard onboard, if it is normal, the power may have wrong phase sequence, over-voltage, under-voltage, lack phase, then disassemble the air inlet panel, baffle of the electric box, check the LED lamp on power monitor, if phase sequence is wrong, exchange the wiring of L1 and L2, if the voltage is over or under, the ship should provide the working voltage, which is ±10%of rated one, if phase lack, check cables are good or not.

Removal:

21-Fuse

cut off the power, disassemble air inlet panel, baffle of electric box, screw off the cover of fuse, measure the fuse resistance with multimeter, if it is zero, fuse is good, if the resistance is infinite, fuse is bad, change new one.

After AC is run for a time, the unit will have some rust, customer should be cleaned frequently, repair the damaged paint. 

Maintenance method: use sand paper to polish the rusted place, use the same paint to repair.

Temp is not set improperly. Set temp should be lower than the ambient temp. Reduce the set temp.
Shutdown without water pressure. The water pressure gauge should indicate 0.12MPa, if lower than 0.07MPa, compressor can not work. Increase water pressure, but water flow should meet with requirements.

Malfunction: after start-up, control panel displays normal, in “heating” mode, but it still does not heat.
