Industrial Heating and Cooling Plates

Three new families of solid state cold plate coolers offer the largest standard selection of high efficiency and high performance in the same compact size available. TECA’s newest thermoelectric cold plate products continue to provide reliable and maintenance free direct contact heating and cooling for general use in many industrial and OEM applications. No matter if it’s high delta T, high capacity or high efficiency cooling plates, these new products should meet your varied needs.

The AHP-400, 500 and 600 series of solid state cold plates heat and cool via reverse polarity of the input voltage using thermoelectric (Peltier) technology. Performance ratings range from 68 watts and 1.8 COP to 163 watts and .57 COP with many selections in between offering superior performance and reduced operating costs in one convenient package. Stocked configurations are for NEMA 12 environments with various mounting methods, hardware and 4 surface taps as standard features. They are all easily customized to meet your needs: tap pattern, mounting method, orientation, voltage, control and operating environment.

These cold plates can become a workhorse in many of your thermal platform applications performing brute force heating/cooling or fine temperature control of process loads, test samples, flows and electrical components in production, product testing, process management or quality control. They can easily be included in your products layout whether that is in an enclosure, on a test platform or part of an industrial process.

Powerhouse Enclosure Cooler: Increased Cooling, Same Small Size

For enclosure cooling, TECA introduces a powerful new thermoelectric air conditioner. The AHP-690 Model design features include more compact dimensions and greater performance for the size. The AHP-690 dimensions are the same as our less powerful coolers-- a scant 10” x 6” x 8.5”-- but the AHP-690 offers 55% more cooling capacity, with 467 BTU/hr of cooling power.

industrial panel cooler electronics panel cooler

As a closed loop enclosure cooler, the AHP-690 protects electronics from over heating in any environment. The AHP-690 panel cooler uses high-quality industrial or military grade fans depending on the NEMA rating of the enclosure it is cooling. The AHP-690 is a thermoelectric air conditioner which excels at cooling in high ambient temperatures whether installed in a NEMA-12, NEMA-4 or NEMA-4X, Shock & Vibration environment.

Possible applications include cooling and heating of mobile electronics, alarm systems, kiosks, communications enclosures, military cases, control panels and anywhere thermal protection for an enclosure is required. Reliable thermoelectric technology is the perfect maintenance free solution for hard-to-access areas. TECA’s air conditioners do not require filters, coolant or chemicals of any kind. There are no moving parts except for the fans. We use robust thermoelectric modules and our air conditioners boast a long service life.

This video introduces TECA Corporation's unique new product which allows for uniform heating and cooling of fluid via thermoelectric technology.

The AHP-800MSP Magnetic Stirring Cold/Hot Plate boasts adjustable features: stir bar speed, fan speed (for noise reduction) and temperature control (internal or external sensing). Optional sleeves make it adjustable for use with standard bottles and beakers or custom-diameter vessels. Applications include titration testing, testing of specimens, drugs and industrial chemicals and process testing in industrial or laboratory environments.

AHP-800MSP Press Release:

March 2012:

TECA introduces our largest heating and cooling plate. The AHP-1800CPV joins the VERSITILE family of laboratory solid-state cold plates (see also AHP-301CPV and AHP-1200CPV). The anodized aluminum plate surface is 13.3” x 12.8”. Like all of our VERSITILE cold plates, the AHP-1800CPV heats and cools with precision via the integral, tunable TC-4300 temperature controller. RS-232 communications and ”EasyLog” data logging software are included to run and chart multi-segment ramp/soak profiles. Integral or remote temperature sensing is possible with the flip of a switch. Universal 100-240 VAC input allows for the AHP-1800CPV to be integrated anywhere.

Integrate the AHP-1800CPV into your laboratory or manufacturing and quality control processes for easy heating or cooling. The work surface is flat, smooth and cleanable. Many accessories are available including glass dissection/cutting plates and insulating covers. Beyond general cold plate applications this new product is particularly well suited in Histology Labs, Pain Research, Tissue Dissection, Reagent Cooling and Sample Heat/Cool Cycling. Maintenance free thermoelectric technology uses no compressor, filters or chemicals.

 

June 2012:

TECA introduces new compact high efficiency thermoelectric (Peltier) air conditioners. The compact efficient air conditioners are available in Through Mounted and Flush Mounted styles and in configurations suitable for Nema-12, Nema-4 and Nema-4X environments.

These thermoelectric cooling (Peltier cooling) devices are available in capacities ranging from 200 BTU/HR to 470 BTU/HR.

The Dual Cold Plate houses two adjacent 13.0” X 6.37” plates. Each plate is independently programmable via the integral and tunable (within +/- 0.1ºC) TC-4300 temperature controllers. RS232 communications are standard. The user can readily employ custom programming through "EazyLog" Software (included) to run and chart multi-segment ramp/soak profiles, tuning, charting and data acquisition. Each plate can be controlled from -10 °C to 80 °C. Each plate has an integrated temperature sensor. However Remote Sensibility™ for location sensitive control is standard and remote sensors are available. Also available are standard and custom sized barriers for animal subjects.

The Dual Cold Plate is well suited for laboratory use. The work surfaces are flat, smooth and cleanable. A quiet fan design reduces noise.

TECA is offering a new series of product to reach extremely low temperatures. Low temperature cascades utilize thermoelectric technology, allowing the top of the cascade surface to reach as cold as -40C! The cascade can consist of two or three stages. Each stage acts as a heat sink for the one above it. TECA offers three configurations of cascades for different performance and cooling-area surface needs.

Each cascade attaches to an AHP-1200CPV(Part # 9-35EB-1-CAS). Cold Plate which is specially designed to work with the cascade.

This complete system includes an insulating cover to help maximize performance, integral power supply, temperature controller and “EZ-Log” data acquisition software. The TC-4300 is a tunable controller within a tolerance of + 0.1ºC. RS232 communications are standard. The user can readily employ custom programming through "EazyLog" Software to run and chart multi-segment ramp/soak profiles, tuning, charting and data acquisition.

The Low Temperature Cascade System is well suited for laboratory use. The work surfaces are flat, smooth and cleanable. A quiet fan design reduces noise.

These cold plates Heat and Cool with precise control via the TC4300 integral, tunable temperature controller. RS232 communications are standard so the user can readily employ custom programming through "EazyLog" Software, also standard, and run and chart multi segment ramp/soak profiles, tuning, charting and data acquisition. These Cold Plates are well suited for laboratory use. The work surfaces are flat, smooth and cleanable. Many accessories are available such as customizable Feature Plates , Sterilizable Glass Dissection Plates, Clear Covers, and more. Beyond general cold plate applications; these new units are particularly well suited in Histology Labs, in Pain Research, Tissue Dissection, Reagent Cooling and Sample Heat/Cool Cycling. Maintenance free thermoelectric technology uses no compressor, filters or chemicals.

 

The new TLC-900 thermoelectric liquid chiller from TECA with User-Friendly new design offers more standard features than any of its predecessors (or competitors).

 

Some of the standard features are:

  • New TC-4300 temperature controller
  • Unique air flow pattern
  • RS-232 communication
  • Universal 90-265 VAC power input
  • Remote sense capability
  • Easy front fill design
