Recently, Priority Rentals purchased some PACH5 Heat Pumps and MACH145 portable air conditioners from UCA. Priority Rentals use for one of its first PACH5 Units was somewhat of a mystery. Priority Rentals contracted with KW Securities, an anti-terrorism, security company in supplying cool air during an installation of anti-tracking/targeted radar system.
According to Luke Mullholland of Priority Rentals, “not a lot of information was given out on exactly what type of system was being installed in the plane, but the problem was the heat inside of the plane during installation”. The electrical engineers installing the equipment were overheating. Originally, KW Securities wanted a 2 ton MovinCool unit. But this had limitations to pulling a return line back to the unit. Luke Mullholland offered the PACH5. Luke stated “this was perfect for the application they wanted. By adding several extra lengths of flex duct to the return, they were able to create a cross flow all the way through the fuselage, keeping the installation engineers comfortable. We could not have done this with one of our other MovinCool or Airrex units. They don’t have enough static pressure and they don’t have the capability of using a return line back to the unit”.
KW Securities used the PACH5 in Virginia and Tennessee for two separate aircraft radar/tracking systems. “We love the UCA equipment. When we send it out, it works. Whether cross town in Philly or in another state. We have confidence it’s going to work when it gets there”.
