SAVE TIME.

UNILAB SHARK is the most accurate software for the design and simulation of air/water or water/water liquid chillers & heat pumps, air conditioners, close control units, multifunctional units, condensing units, evaporating units, remote condensers and any type of special project which includes a refrigerant cycle. Designing such units takes time: Shark reduces it drastically, by having all components in one single tool! Use just one software to design all your units. The design of a new unit is intuitive and quick. Once selected the refrigerant, the designer can draw the layout of the unit by dragging & dropping the required components, such as evaporators, condensers (air, plate, shell & tube & more), compressors (Scroll, Screw, alternative, reciprocating, rotatory, variable speed, & more, even TURBOCOR®) & fans (axial, centrifugal, EC, & more), in a just a click! UNILAB SHARK allows the calculation of the operation point of the complete unit with direct cycle, reverse refrigerant cycle, and the reverse hydraulic cycle operation point of a portion of the unit.

A HUGE ARCHIVE OF COMPONENTS

The archive for each component is huge, and divided in Standard & Customer archive. The standard archive is updated regularly with the main latest models from the bestselling manufacturers like Copeland, Bitzer, Alfa Laval, Onda, Swep, just to name a few. Your compressor, fan, evaporator etc. is not there? No problem! The customer archive allows you to insert independently new components! And if you have SQL Server Express, we can configure Shark to work and connect with it (on demand), and the archive will be shared within your office, so if you insert a new component, also your colleagues can use it as soon as you’ve inserted it! While others use tables, we have an engine. Shark’s state-of-the-art calculation engine allows the user to calculate anywhere, at any conditions (ex. To check if your unit works with Dubai conditions: 40°C/55%) & to warn the user of out of compressor limits situations! After clicking on the calculate button, the software will quickly identify the balance point of the system and provide detailed information about each component’s performance! You can even create performance tables, of a single unit and an entire series of machines!! 

ECO DESIGN & MORE!

A wide array of refrigerants is available, including R32, R1234ze, R1234yf, R513A! SHARK also lets you partialize scroll & screw compressors. You can also set the partialization of the fans if the unit is an air/water chiller, and if you use a Variex, the program will adapt the fans air flow to increase the condensing temperature as well. Shark lets you also calculate the ESEER and IPLV ratings of the unit! You can even create custom IPLV profiles!

ECO DESIGN! Perform seasonal calculation! Calculation of energy index SEER, SCOP & SEPR with printouts according to the regulation are available on demand.

Other on demand features include Flooded Shell & Tube evaporators, Microchannel Condensers, Water Microchannel (new!), Enabling of Screw & Scroll inverter compressors & the Calculation of TURBOCOR ® magnetic bearing compressors.

SHARK is a technical software developed by UNILAB and is indispensable to the thermal designer in the development of liquid coolers, heat pumps, conditioners.

SHARK identifies a converging point of the system giving essential information on the best solution.

In SHARK, the libraries of components (heat exchangers, compressors, fans etc..) are updatable: specific guides help the user with data insertion and calibration during the calculation phase.

Create Excel tables of performances for catalogues!
• Customize technical report with all input data, calculated results, and a simple Component list in Word Format!
• Calculate adiabatic system with pad !
• Calculate ECO DESIGN & seasonal calculation
• Calculate pressure drops on both air & refrigerant side!

UNILAB SHARK performs the calculation of:
• the operation point of the complete unit with direct cycle, reverse refrigerant cycle, reverse hydraulic cycle
• operation point of a portion of the unit: evaporator & compres-sor, compressor and condenser, fan and condenser, fan and evapo-rator
• compressor capacity, total capacity, absorbed power, fans absorbed power, total absorbed power, compressors EER, fans EER and total EER & more!
