HURRICANE Technology

 HURRICANE® Technology

The HURRICANE® unit is engineered and built to perform. Old Air Products has developed what we believe sets a new standard for the auto air industry.

Designed to out produce the anything of its kind in the marketplace, the HURRICANE® utilizes a large stacked 80 pass coil with 53 feet of copper tubing. This coil design provides an enormous amount of surface area to cool the air as it passes through the coil for maximum cooling capacity.

The HURRICANE® Unit is engineered with a Straight through design that does not restrict air flow with bends and turns within the evaporator case. Our Testing shows that airflow is dramatically improved by pulling the air across the coils. This keeps the blower motor cooled improving unit life. Most competitors units place the blower fan behind and to the side of the evaporator coil thus pushing the air across the coil surface. This forces the air flow to make radical turns in order to move through the coil fins resulting in excessive back pressure and overall reduction of air volume.

The HURRICANE® unit features a snap together injection molded case that can be easily disassembled to service system. Many competitors units are glued together and cannot be disassembled.

Why Choose a HURRICANE
 

Compact Modular Design

The HURRICANE® Unit is specifically designed to be user friendly. The compact size of the system allow retention of glove box, cowl vents, and frees space for in-dash components and accessibility. (i.e. Radio, etc.....) Unlike many other retro fit A/C, heat and defrost systems available the HURRICANE® also allows the customer ease of service, by simply unsnapping and removing the bottom half of the case.



Ease Of installation

The HURRICANE® HVAC is hands down the easiest aftermarket A/C, Heat & Defrost System to install. The HURRICANE® Unit is mounted to the fire wall in the same place as a factory unit. This allows for the use of existing through firewall holes in most cases while retaining your original dash looks and functionality.



Choice of Components and Accessories

You can select from a choice of three coil designs, a variety of dash louvers, several cable or electronic switching options, condenser sizes and compressor mounting brackets to create a custom system for virtually any vehicle.
