YORK, Pa. — American Cooling Technology (ACT) has unveiled its new family of skirt-mount condensers, set for full production beginning March 1.

The new universal-mount CS-2, CS-32 and CS-3 provide a universal mounting pattern that gives the air-conditioning installer and service technician flexibility to select the best bolt pattern for the specific vehicle.

The universal condenser expands ACT’s existing North American product line that includes a full range of split-system and roof-mounted air-conditioning units for school and shuttle buses.

ACT officials said that based on market feedback from customers who participated in field trials, the company made the new condensers easier to install than other skirt-mount condensers. The new condensers are available in both 12 volts and 24 volts and can be supplied in capacities from 60,000 Btu/hr to 82,000 Btu/hr.

Because the skirt-mount condensers have a universal mounting pattern, the a/c installer can select from either the side-by-side or front-and-rear mounting bolt pattern. Also, the service technician can replace any model of skirt condenser using ACT's universal mount.

"This flexibility translates to less downtime, which is critical for bus fleets operating on tight budgets," company officials said in an announcement.

Jason Verdier has been named parts sales and distribution manager for ACT.

ACT’s universal-mount condensers can be matched with other ACT components to provide a complete HVAC system that meets various vehicle sizes, duty cycles and geographic locations.

In other news, ACT named Jason Verdier to a new position of parts sales and distribution manager, effective mid-January.

Verdier has more than 20 years of experience in the North American bus air-conditioning business and "brings a new vision to supporting ACT parts customers," company officials said.
