Using PCAs Inverter powered by electric network will allow your airport to generate new revenue and decrease drastically air pollution emissions

The ZEPHIR Inverter Series provide the most efficient, flexible and reliable way to deliver high quality preconditioned air on demand, for a wide variety of stationed aircraft in all climatic conditions.

Potential annual benefits using PCA Inverter instead of using APU (Auxiliary Power Unit):

Energy Efficiency
Energy Efficiency

The innovative Inverter System is designed to save amount of electricity in cooling and heating operations, reducing the energy consumption in airports.

Inverter Scroll Compressors
Inverter Scroll Compressors

They allow to modify the frequency of the compressor from 20 to 100% of the power which increase the lifespan and reduce the consumption of the compressor up to 30% with respect to the non-inverter

Heat Pump

The heat pump system for heating using the refrigeration system instead of electric heating elements, which can reduce the energy cost up to 60%.

CO<sub>2</sub> + NO<sub>x</sub> + PM<sub>10</sub> Savings
CO2 + NOx + PM10 Savings

Using PCAs Inverter powered by electric network will allow your airport to generate new revenue and decrease drastically air pollution emissions

Preconditioned Air Unit specifications

High efficiency and low operations costs

Zephir Series are designed and engineered to deliver optimum airflow to each aircraft, using four compressors four phases and high efficiency direct drive centrifugal blower (VFD), while consuming the minimum energy.

Heating and cooling Inverter technology

ADELTE’s PCA Inverter is designed for cooling and heating stationed aircrafts. In heating mode, no electrical resistor is needed as a Heat Pump is integrated to the system which results in a much lower electrical power consumption.

Environmentally-friendly refrigerants

Zephir units use R-410A refrigerant which respects the environment and the future generation to come. Its high efficiency significantly reduces refrigerant load and CO2 emissions

Ease of installation

Zephir PCAs are point-of-use units which can fit any layout platform and can be installed on any passenger boarding bridge. They are available in both ground-mounted and bridge-mounted configurations and are prepared to be connected to a centralized management system.

Durability and ease of maintenance

Quality is a must. All components are designed, manufactured and tested in order to offer a service life of at least 15 years. Maintenance tasks can be carried out fast and easy on any component inside the unit thanks to ADELTE’s direct access design. Remote maintenance and monitoring are available to enhance PCA operations.

Smart PLC Control

Zephir PCA is designed according the latest technologies. The PLC can be accessed remotely o via its user-friendly touch screen interface allowing operators to control all parameters of the PCA during operations, monitoring or maintenance phases.

Superior passenger comfort

Conceived to provide passengers with an outstanding experience, Zephir PCA uses G4 filters (F5 to F9 filters optional) to supply high quality air inside the aircraft and reinforced thermo acoustic insulation for significant noise reduction.
