HEFKO Products - Plexus -  Yachtausrüstung ist vielfältig

Yacht equipment is varied

The PLEXUS program is our concept for yachts when air conditioning is concerned.  Generally it differentiates between two lines which ether operate with direct or indirect cold production. Depending on the unit they offer capacities from 1.3 to 65 kW. Regardless of which size the yacht is there is in any case a technically and economically optimal solution.

For direct cold production in the room to be cooled self contained air conditioners as well as condensing units plus fan coil units (direct expansion) are provided.

Self contained units are suitable for conditioning of one room each. So they can make for comfort also on a small boat. Without any pipes for refrigerant they are easy to install.

Condensing units and fan coil units (direct expansion) together form so called split-systems. They offer higher comfort since the noise of the condensing unit with its associated compressor is eliminated by installation outside the cabin. Furthermore one condensing unit can feed two or more fan coil units that are installed in different rooms.


Installation example with PLEXUS chillers and glasconvectors and for a sailing yacht.

For medium and larger size yachts central water chillers and water cooled fan coil units are developed. Maximum comfort by lowest noise level in the cabins and the possible adaptation to any size of the ship are important criteria. Since only environmental friendly water is used for distribution of cold the amount of refrigerant and possible losses are limited to minimum.

Water chillers are installed in the machinery room where they can easily be connected and accessed. All fan coil units and water chillers are equipped with their own independent controllers. They allow individually defined settings.
