ROBOTICS

Robotics Application:

robotics

An industrial plant uses robots in its juicing and bottling process. The robots continuously overheat and shut off. The environment is dirty and 240 VAC is the only available input voltage.

TECA’s AHP-1801X Air Conditioner offers dual voltage capability and a rugged hot side fan that can handle NEMA-4X and corrosive environments. The customer is able to use the built-in temperature controller to keep his robots at a cool 25 °C.

Specializing primarily in the food and beverage processing industries, one of our longtime customers uses TECA air conditioners in several applications. These include cooling or heating LCD screens, desktop computers, thin clients, and KVM kiosks. The locations of these applications are indoors, outdoors, in cold rooms and baking areas.

TECA’s comprehensive line of air conditioners fit the bills. We offer each model in different configurations according to the customer’s need regarding input voltage, mounting and application environment.

BEVERAGE INDUSTRY

Beverage Industry Equipment cooling:

Our customer manufactures various machinery and appliances for the beverage industry.  One such system of theirs requires high performance and precision, achieved by using specially designed software and test & measurement equipment.

TECA’s thermoelectric air conditioner, the AHP-1200XE with built in temperature controller, is an important part of this system. The customer uses TECA’s AHP-1200XE to reliably cool an enclosure housing a computer and touchscreen. The customer has depended on dozens of AHP-1200XE air conditioners over the years for use in their system.

PAPER MILL

Paper Mill:

The environment of a paper mill is hostile to most equipment. Could a thermoelectric cooler stand up to such conditions?

TECA Model AHP-1200X Solid State Air Conditioner is a perfect solution. This TECA model AHP-1200Xwas returned to TECA for evaluation, after over 120,000 hours of duty. It just did not seem to cool as much any more. As a matter of fact, it was originally put to work in 1992 cooling an electronic enclosure in a paper mill. The customer was sure it needed to be replaced, but sent it back to us to see if anything could be salvaged.

In our inspection we found that the hot side heat sink was fouled with 14 years of newsprint sludge. Once the goop was cleaned out and the fan was free to spin; the unit ran like a charm!

RUGGEDIZED FOOD PROCESSING

The maker of some of our favorite corn chips used TECA’s AHP-1200X for years in severe hose down environments.

They now had a similar requirement where they wanted to minimize any cleaning and were willing to entertain a liquid cooled LHP-1200XE solid state air conditioner. The unit fit into the same area and footprint as its air cooled cousin and provided greater cooling capacity. This customer added a valve on the water inlet to provide water flow only when cooling was required.

The units have been in service for years.

NUCLEAR PLANT

Nuclear Plant:

To cool equipment used for quality control inspection of pipes in nuclear energy plants. Evaluating the condition of pipes in nuclear power plants can be time consuming and costly. Automated and remote guided methods are available. Much of the electronics for the job must be rugged and durable, capable of handling many environmental conditions.

TECA designed, tested and built a system around standard portable cases. The unit shown is the prototype of the production unit, built into the top of a transportation case. Doing the design and prototype work of this nature often leads to happy customers and production jobs for TECA, as it did in this case!
