Friax Split System Wine Cellar Conditioner

Wine Cellar Conditioner

Almost any space can be converted into a wine cellar to ensure your prized vintages reach perfect maturity and stay in peak condition.

Friax split-systems provide perfect temperature and humidity. Normally a cellar should be insulated to around 60mm all around but where this is not possible we can incorporate more powerful systems to compensate.

Description

Split system conditioning equipment comprises of two components. An evaporator in or near the cellar room and a condensing unit which is normally mounted on the outside of a building, on the wall or on the ground. It can be surrounded by fencing or trellis, so long as the airflow around it is not impeded. The evaporator and condenser are connected by two small copper pipes. The maximum distance between the condensing unit and evaporator is 20m but this can be extended after consultation with us as to the precise requirements.

All our split-systems feature noise suppression and active humidity control (water supply required).

For customers who do not wish to see the evaporator unit, we use specially adapted units which can be concealed in ceiling voids or within furniture inside the cellar, so all that is visible are two decorative grills. There are 4 different types of evaporator:-

EVPL

– The evaporator is attached to the ceiling or wall and is in full view.

CONDENSING UNIT

The condensing unit is always located outdoors in order for the unit to ventilate properly.  For residential installations we advocate incorporating option BNS which reduces the noise emitted from the condensing unit.

THE WINE SUPERVISOR

The Wine Supervisor is a system which allows the parameters of the conditioning equipment to be viewed and set from a remote location, so you can keep an eye on your cellar’s temperature and humidity.
