High-Performance Cooling in Harsh Refinery Environment

Cooling control panels outdoors:

A first in the thermoelectric industry, TECA introduced enclosure coolers with performance ratings of 3,500 BTU/HR and up 6,000 BTU/HR about six years ago.

AERONAUTICS

Aeronautics:

A leading military and aeronautics contractor needed a cooling solution for an enclosure which would be on a high altitude vessel. The system would be exposed to high winds and ambient elements present in the altitude.

Working with the customer; TECA sales and engineering team designed a cooling solution with specific intake and exhaust characteristics along with custom paint and finish process that could withstand the conditions it will be exposed to.

MILITARY COMMUNICATIONS

A branch of the US military had a need for cooling a small enclosure containing a critical voice communication system. The shipboard system had to be resistant to salt water corrosion as well as pass stringent shock and vibration testing.

Modifications to TECAs AHP-300X solid air conditioner allowed the unit to meet specializing and air flow requirements and pass these tests. The challenge was to overcome the small available space both inside and outside the enclosure. The heat sinks were turned so that the heat rejection air flow and internal cold side air flow moved in different directions.

This unit is a prime example of how flexible Team TECA is when customer needs require customization of standard products.

AVIONICS MAINTENANCE

The task was to create a portable cooling system for diagnostic equipment to allow troubleshooting of avionics systems while still installed. Troubleshooting and diagnosing avionics problems is hard enough on the bench.

To save valuable time, technicians would rather get it done while the electronics are still in the aircraft. Also, under harsh environments, it is difficult to keep cutting edge electronics functioning the way they should. When it came to the type of portable cooling for the diagnostic equipment required for these jobs; a navy contractor came to TECA for the solution.

We helped design and build the solution shown in its prototype form around the portable enclosure. TECA completed the project on a tight schedule, which called for teamwork and attention to detail.
