Cooling Input/Output Racks

Drywall Manufacturing: Cooling Input/Output Racks

Several FHP-2250 Air Conditioners are used by our client to keep I/O racks within the operating temperature during peak ambient temperatures. Located in a dusty, high ambient industrial environment, our client originally tried cooling the control cabinets with fans and filters. However, with the ambient temperatures reaching 120F, the I/O racks faulted. Our client has half a dozen gas burning drying chambers, with a TECA FHP-2250 enclosure cooler mounted to each chamber’s control cabinet. The TECA solution is, in our client’s words “best for high ambient, low maintenance and dusty conditions to control interior temperature of these cabinets”.

 

A big benefit of the FHP-2250 is its flush-mounted design. Since there is not intrusion into the enclosure, equipment is not disturbed, and retro fitting is easy. A closed loop system maintains NEMA-4/4X enclosure ratings. The FHP-2250 is available in several configurations:

Model Number Cooling Capacity
BTU/HR
COP Voltge
VAC (VDC)
Current
AMPS
FHP-2250 1220 0.83 120 3.6
FHP-2250 1250 0.85 (24) 15
FHP-2250 1250 0.85 (48) 8
FHP-2250 (High Capacity) 1715 0.39 120 10.8
FHP-2252 (High Capacity) 1875 0.35 240 6.5
FHP-2250 (High Capacity) 1610 0.66 (48) 15

Cooling a NEMA-4 Enclosure with Precision

Cooling a NEMA-4 Enclosure with Precision:

Cooling a NEMA-4 Enclosure with Precision   Cooling Enclosure
A flow testing facility required precise heating and cooling of a NEMA-4 enclosure in an outdoor application. The customer’s NEMA-4 instrument box houses very sensitive transducers and data acquisition equipment.

TECA Model AHP-1200XEHC paired with the TC-3400 remote temperature controller protects the enclosure’s contents from extreme temperatures in the ambient. The customer can monitor and set the controller without opening the NEMA-4 enclosure. Custom programming achieves exact set points as specified by the customer. The sealed, industrial grade external fan allows for wash down of the enclosure and exposure to the outdoor environment, all while maintaining a closed loop system.

KIOSK COOLING

Kiosk Cooling:

A company specializing in fleet management and motor pool software required multiple outdoor, self service kiosks to be placed in various environments throughout the USA. TECA’s AHP-470XEHC thermoelectric air conditioner is an ideal solution, providing needed cooling to sensitive parts within the sun-exposed kiosk. The AHP-470XEHC air conditioner cools the kiosk without taking up much space and it is suitable for various environments including NEMA-4 enclosures. Heat/Cool is optional, as are external covers for aesthetic purposes.

Whether space is restricted inside or outside your kiosk, TECA offers three mounting styles for kiosk cooling: Through, Internal and External.

In the images shown here, TECA Model AHP-1800XE Thermoelectric Air Conditioner is being used successfully to cool electronics in an outdoor kiosk. The desert environment where the kiosk is located sees temperatures upwards of 110 F.

Outdoor kiosks are growing in popularity but typically require more from an active cooling system than their indoor counterparts. Outdoor kiosks have heat generating equipment like LCD screens and computers. In addition, there can be solar loads and high ambient temperatures to contend with. TECA offers many sizes of enclosure coolers for outdoor use, all utilizing low maintenance and reliable thermoelectric cooling technology.

Our customer raves about the results of this TECA-cooled kiosk, “I had not even one maintenance call. During the summer time the surface of the kiosk gets as high as 125 F, and the components were running cooler than the components in our indoor kiosks.”

TECA Model AHP-1800XEHC Thermoelectric Air Conditioner with heat and cool functions is installed on a rooftop enclosure in harsh conditions and exposed to extreme ambient temperatures. Testing for over 90,000 hours was successfully completed with no failures occurring on the AHP-1800XE enclosure cooler. This is a good example of the reliable nature of thermoelectric technology. Thermoelectric cooling is a good choice for enclosures that are in remote or hard-to-access places. There is very little maintenance required as it is a solid-state technology. The only moving parts are the fans.

The applications for AHP-1802XE’s are Vestas wind turbines, one located in Greece and one in the south of Japan.

“We are installing sensitive measurement equipment, and need to control the inside temperature of the measurement panel. One panel is in each of the rotors in the hub and the two others are in the nacelles (rotating and non rotating). We have just decided to make the two panels into one in the nacelle (where the panel in not rotating).”

Intermodal Control Cooling

Intermodal Control Cooling:

Intermodal systems are increasingly upgrading to automate their processes. Where there is automation, there is a need for control cooling. TECA supports automation by protecting crucial electronics in control cabinets. This minimizes process time and maximizes productivity.

In this example, heat-sensitive electronics are installed in truck processing terminals. TECA Model AHP-1800XEHC offers heat and cool modes and keeps the equipment within safe and operable temperatures.
