The discontinued Ruud UAMB air conditioner series, also known as the Achiever 12 series, consists of seven models with SEER ratings reaching up to 14.3. These condensing units are intended for use in single family, multifamily and light commercial locations.
The design of the UAMB series emphasizes durability and longevity, according to the manufacturer. The louvered wraparound jacket protects the coils, and the unit’s powder painted exterior is manufactured to withstand the elements year-round. The removable top grille is reinforced with steel and shaped to allow for a quiet upward discharge of air. By connecting the motor to the underside of the discharge grill, the single-speed motor is secured and the parts are protected from the elements. Additional corrosion resistance is provided by the painted base pan. The JAZ/CAZ models have low and high pressure controls and a liquid line filter drier that the JBZ/CBZ models lack.
Not only is the Copeland scroll compressor externally mounted and insulated, but it is equipped with a high temperature overload protection and low start torque for reliable starting. All Achiever models use copper tube-aluminum fin coils.
