SSTEE Series Evaporators

Low-profile unit coolers for small to medium applications, capable of handling a broad range of temperatures. SSTEE models utilize 3/8 inch diameter stainless steel tube that offers a reduced refrigerant charge compared to similarly sized units with larger diameter tubes. SSTEE evaporators are offered with stainless steel tube/aluminum fin with a hygienic cabinet design.

  • Constructed with heavy wall, 3/8 inch OD, stainless steel tubing featuring Crosscool™ Internal Tube Enhancement
  • Standard Aluminum Fin construction featuring ChannelFlow Fin Technology as standard (available in 3.3 , 4.3 , and 6 fins per inch)
  • Optimized recirculation rate of 1.2:1.0 significantly reduces system refrigerant charge
  • Cast aluminum fan blades as standard
  • Low sound fan motors ranging from ½ horsepower to 1 horsepower and 1750 RPM
  • G-235 hot dip galvanized steel casing and dual-sloped drain pan
  • Hygienic cabinet design
  • Easy installation
  • AHRI Standard 420 Certified™

Warm room air is drawn into the evaporator across the cooling coil. Refrigerant is circulated through the coil of the evaporator. Heat from the air is absorbed by the refrigerant through the coil tubes causing a portion of the refrigerant to evaporate. The air is cooled as it travels through the coil and is discharged into the room.

Optimized Coil Design
Heat Exchanger Coil

The coil tube diameter, geometry, and circuiting have been optimized through thousands of hours of theoretical modeling and laboratory testing.

  • Through the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling software, finite heat transfer analysis, and proprietary coil performance calculation methods, EVAPCO engineers have identified significant design elements to improve the finned coil performance
  • The circuiting program used on all EVAPCO coils has been optimized based on actual coil operation in EVAPCO’s world class research laboratory

The result is optimal heat transfer efficiency with low airside pressure drop and low motor horsepower per ton.

Innovative Coil Technology
CrossCool

All SSTEE Series stainless steel tubes feature CrossCool, an internal tube enhancement that improves the internal film coefficient for more efficient heat transfer, resulting in:

  • Reduced refrigerant charge
  • Reduced refrigerant pump horsepower
  • Lower operating cost
  • Smaller line sizes and reduced overall installation costs
ChannelFlow

EVAPCO’s patented enhanced aluminum fin technology is proven to minimize airside pressure drop while improving overall heat transfer performance.

  • The unique fin design allows for free drainage of condensate during wet operation without water carryover
Advanced Materials & Design Features
Superior Stainless Steel Technology

SSTEE Series evaporators are constructed with high-grade type 304L stainless steel tubing and aluminum fins as standard.

  • Meets the requirements of ASME B31.5 refrigerant piping code
  • Stainless steel tubes are available in 3/8 inch OD
  • Coils are built in 3.3, 4.3, and 6 FPI as standard using a full-collar aluminum fin featuring EVAPCO’s ChannelFlow fin technology

For applications where corrosion of the aluminum fin is a concern, EVAPCO offers pre-coated epoxy fin stock.

EVAPCO also offers high performance stainless steel fins for applications where coatings are not acceptable, including any installation near open food products and production areas.

Stronger Corrosion Protection

The casing and drain pans are constructed from G-235 hot dip galvanized steel with an option for type 304 stainless steel.

  • G-235 is the highest level of mil galvanizing offered in the industry and exceeds the zinc protection that other manufacturers provide when using G-90 mil galvanized steel
  • The higher level of galvanizing provides a greater level of corrosion protection for a longer product life
Efficient Evaporator Fans

EVAPCO’s extensive air side research and testing has identified fans with the best combination of efficiency and sound levels.Fans used in the SSTEE Series evaporators have performance curves generated in EVAPCO’s AMCA Fan Test Chamber, ensuring the fans perform as required to deliver the certified cooling effect and power ratings as stated in the equipment quotation and submitted data.

  • Standard catalog models are selected to provide low sound levels
  • EVAPCO’s low sound fan selections provide more comfort and a safer working environment for personnel entering the cold space.
Durable Fan Motors
  • All SSTEE Series evaporators are supplied with totally enclosed air over (TEAO), foot-mounted fan motors with sealed bearings and low-temperature grease
  • Standard fan motors are suitable for operation on a variable frequency drive and range from ½ horsepower fractional motors to 1 horsepower, and are suitable for 230/460-volt, 3-phase,60-cycle applications
  • Standard motors are across-the-line start and operate at 1750 RPM
  • All 1750 RPM motors up to 1 HP are equipped with automatic thermal overload protection
  • All fan motors, including fractional horsepower fan motors, are foot-mounted for improved durability in a wide range of operating conditions
  • All fan motors are pre-wired to a NEMA 4X junction box
Sloped Top Panels
  • Sloped top panels to prevent accumulation of moisture from condensation or clean-up cycles
Hygienic Drain Pans

Sloped in two directions to prevent water from pooling, the custom engineered drain pans are also equipped with swaged bottom outlets to ensure complete drainage.

  • Drain pans are factory mounted prior to shipment
  • Drain pans are insulated as standard
Air Discharge Arrangements

Air discharge options impact free delivery of air and are not certified under AHRI Standard 420.

  • Long throw adapters for installation in large rooms or corridors, can be aluminum or stainless steel
Defrost

Options include:

Air defrost with insulated drain pans.

Hot gas coil and pan with a hot gas coil under the inner drain pan:

  • The unique design of the hot gas drain pan provides for highly efficient defrost
  • Hot gas defrost units may be piped with either parallel feed to coil and drain pan or series flow from drain pan to coil
  • Hot gas pan-to-coil piping includes a factory mounted check valve

Electric defrost featuring electric resistance heater elements with termination thermostat:

  • Electric defrost options are sized based on room temperature.
  • Electric pan heaters included for room temperatures below 32°F
  • Electric defrost can be supplied with optional heater contactor
Electrical

Fan motors are prewired to a terminal box as standard.

  • Wiring on one- and two- fan models terminate with leads inside a NEMA 4X junction box
  • For models with three or more fan motors, a terminal strip is included to which the motor leads are wired

Other electrical options include:

Custom Coil Applications

EVAPCO offers a broad range of unit configurations along with engineering expertise and manufacturing capability to design and build virtually any type of non-cataloged custom coil or special unit. Contact your EVAPCO Representative to get started.

Coil and Fin Options

Coil and fin options include:

  • Reheat coils for applications requiring humidity control; a separate heating coil is designed and circuited for refrigerant or an alternate heat source and is installed on the leaving air side of the cooling coil to heat the air to the desired temperature
  • Flat fins constructed from 0.014 inch aluminum.
  • Heavy fins constructed from 0.028 inch heavy gauge aluminum, making them 8-times stronger than the standard thickness fins, ideal for harsh environments and heavy frost applications
