The Carrier 38AKS Gemini air conditioner is a 25- to 40-nominal ton split-system unit meant for commercial use. It has an efficiency rating of 11.3 EER and features one compressor and one refrigeration circuit. Conversion is available to change the unit from a constant volume control to a variable air volume unit.
Surrounded with a pre-painted galvanized steel jacket, the 38AKS features long-term protection from the elements. The outdoor coil construction of the copper-tube aluminum fin further adds to the unit’s durability, as well as its high heat transfer. Additionally, an optional epoxy coating is available for the copper fin coil for use in harsh environments such as coastal areas.
Equipped with 06D and 06E compressors, the use of vibration insulation on the compressor mounting system minimizes noise and stress on components. Start-up reliability is ensured by the inclusion of the crankcase heater which eliminates liquid slugging. A sight glass on the compressors allows owners or technicians to monitor the oil level easily.
Several safety features are incorporated into the design, including an anti-short cycling control, high/low refrigerant pressure safety and calibrated circuit breakers. This unit is shipped with an R-22 holding charge.
