Beth-El Industries designs and produces custom air conditioning systems for boats to supply clean, conditioned air to multiple personnel areas within a vessel, such as the wheelhouse, utility rooms, and equipment rooms. The system is designed with thermodynamic heat load analysis, so that it will match the thermal gain of a vessel as the temperature varies during a 24 hour period. This is critical for a boat, since during the daytime, it sits directly in the sun and absorbs the radiant heat reflecting off the surface of the surrounding water.
The air conditioning system is water cooled, using sea water, and is proficient in creating a very comfortable level of dehumidification and cooling. The system is designed to work with an NBC filtration system, but can operate separately as well. In combination with the filtration system, the arrangement creates a complete environmental protection system that is fully controlled from a custom remote control.
