Product Release: Trane Light Commercial Packaged Air Conditioning Solutions


St. Paul, Minn.  — Packaged air conditioning solutions from Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort systems and solutions and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, now feature a more rugged microchannel aluminum coil construction to increase reliability and sustainability.

The more robust microchannel coil replaces copper and aluminum tube-and-fin condenser coils. The microchannel coils reduce refrigerant charge by as much as 50 percent, creating a healthier and greener environment. The new designs also leverage reusable packaging in the manufacturing process to reduce landfill waste.

“The new microchannel enables these highly efficient solutions to further optimize performance and reliability while increasing sustainability,” said Shawn Wood, product manager at Trane. “The microchannel coil can help companies meet corporate commitments to sustainability and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) requirements while increasing reliability and performance.”

Trane packaged air conditioning solutions featuring the microchannel coil include the Voyager II (12.5 to 25 tons), Voyager Commercial (27 to 50 tons) and the IntelliPak™ line (20 to 75 tons). Additional large rooftop platforms will follow later this year. 

The high efficiency Voyager II is particularly useful in restaurant and large retail applications. The IntelliPak and Voyager Commercial are highly flexible rooftop solutions featuring multiple factory installed offerings that make them ideal for diverse applications, including malls, offices, manufacturing, healthcare and primary/secondary education facilities.

Trane microchannel solutions feature engineering innovation which simplifies coil handling, protects the coil from handling damage and safeguards the coil from thermal cyclic fatigue stresses. 

All rooftop packaged air conditioning solutions featuring the new microchannel condenser meet LEED-BC EAc4- Enhanced Refrigerant Management requirements.
