Dantherm Military Mobile Heating and Air Conditioning Equipment
Since 1958, Dantherm has developed and manufactured air-handling equipment which provides healthy and comfortable environments. In association with Nato-member countries, Dantherm has developed mobile heating, air conditioning and power-generation equipment for extreme-condition military applications. Its adoption as a NATO-standard company is proof that the most severe demands have been met. Dantherm units for heating and cooling of tent camps and field hospitals are ideal anywhere there is a need for temporary heating or air conditioning.
Dantherm not only designs, develops and manufactures portable heating and cooling solutions, but – based on almost 50 years’ experience from warm air heaters, dehumidifiers and air-handling units – has also developed a strong competence within electronics cooling. The cooling knowledge is primarily used for solutions to the telecom sector (including TETRA).
ACM5 air conditioner
A small compact air conditioner (cooling output 5kW) for military shelters, the ACM5 is mounted with a trapdoor system in an opening in the shelter. During transportation, or when not in use, the unit is pushed into the shelter and the trapdoor locked. Its NSN is 4120-22-602-6562.
ACM7 air conditioner
The ACM7 MK II (cooling output 7kW) mobile air conditioning unit was developed primarily to provide air conditioning in transportable buildings or tents. It not only provides greater comfort but also protects equipment and materials from damage. The air conditioner is fitted with flexible air hoses and the unit itself must be located outside. It is controlled by a remote thermostat and its NSN is 4120-22-608-4874.
ACM18 mobile air conditioner
The ACM18 (cooling output 18kW) is designed for air conditioning in temporary or transportable buildings and tents. It is a compact, lightweight unit made of aluminium and built into a rigid steel frame.
The unit is designed to be placed outside, with supply air and return air ducted to one tent. For field hospitals where COLPRO is not required, but a higher filtration than for normal accommodation is wanted, a dual-filtration system for the internal air path is available. The ACM18’s NSN is 4120-22-615-5382.
A wheel kit is available as a basic add-on solution, which can be fitted to the ACM 18 on site without using any tools. Easily accessible handles lift the unit to transport mode, and the ACM 18 can be transported and moved to the optimal position by one person. On sites where no forklift is available, the wheel solution enables rapid and easy deployment of the ACM 18 aircon.
ACM18 CBRN mobile air conditioner
The 18kW cooling output ACM18 CBRN is designed for sealed shelter applications. A compact, lightweight unit made of aluminium and built into a rigid steel frame, it operates on COLPRO applications with the evaporator module placed inside the shelter and the condenser placed outside. The two modules are interconnected by refrigerant hoses, power and control cables. The ACM 18 CBRN’s NSN is 4120-22-618-1245.
The two units can also operate with both modules placed outside, with supply air and return air ducted to one tent. A dual-filtration system for the internal air path is available for selective filtration.
Both the ACM18 and ACM18 CBRN can be equipped with an electric heating coil to provide heating (e.g. for night-time, when temperatures can fall under 20°C).
ACM11 mobile air conditioner
The ACM 11 air conditioner (cooling output 11 kW) is developed primarily to provide air conditioning in temporary or transportable buildings or tents. It is a small, lightweight unit made of aluminium and built into a rigid steel frame. The unit is designed to be placed outside, with supply air and return air ducted to the tent.
For field hospitals where a higher filtration than for normal accommodation is needed, a dual filtration system for the internal air path is available. It can provide cooling at ambient temperatures up to 60°C. The ACM 11 is equipped with an electric heating coil, to provide heating, for example, at night time when temperatures can fall under 20°C. All sheet metal parts are protected against corrosion by a minimum 80µm top coat.
As a supplement to the ACM 11 aircon, a 12kW electrical booster heater is available. With an ACM 11 and booster heater connected to a tent or shelter, the user will have one product solution to cover an operating range from -40°C to 60°C. This solution is designed for field hospitals where stable inside temperatures are very important.
A wheel kit is available as a basic add-on-solution, which can be fitted to the ACM 11 on site without using any tools. Easily accessible handles lift the unit to transport mode, and the ACM 11 can be transported and moved to the optimal position by one person. On sites where no forklift is available, the wheel solution enables rapid and easy deployment of the ACM 11 aircon.
VAM15 portable heater
The VAM15 handy, compact mobile heater is easy to transport, make ready for use and operate. Robust and extremely reliable, this mobile heater is ideal for providing heat and ventilation to tents, vehicles, etc., in all climatic conditions. Its NSN is 4520-22-613-3506.
The unit is easily vehicle-transportable to field locations and generous handles along each side allow it to be carried over rough terrain. The VAM15 is used by the armed forces of several NATO countries and relief agencies worldwide.
VAM40 portable heater
The VAM40 robust mobile heater with dual inlet and outlet ports provides high heat-output and adjustable airflow. It features either a hardened lifting point for a crane and / or built-in rails for lifting with a fork truck. The VAM diesel generator can be fitted directly onto the unit for transport and actual use.
The VAM40 is used by the armed forces of several NATO countries and civilian aid organisations. Its NSN is 4520-22-121-0561.
