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.

BEVERAGE INDUSTRY

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.

FOOD PROCESSING

A European manufacturer of special equipment for processing fruits and vegetables needed to cool sensitive electronics on their line of produce-processing machines, which sort products by color, size and weight.

TECA Model AHP1200XE solid state air conditioners were selected.

The equipment in use is washed down frequently, so the Model AHP1200XE is ideal because it is designed to meet NEMA 4 and suitable for wash-down environments, while it also carries the CE Mark.

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.

MILITARY TROOP TRANSPORT

It was 1994 and a military contractor came to TECA with a problem. The existing Freon based refrigerators used in troop transport galleys had a MTBF measured in months.

They had recognized the potential of thermoelectrics and contracted with a vendor to design and build refrigerators for them.  The problem came when the original vendor’s product failed to live up to its potential. TECA was approached and given only several months to design, build and test three prototype refrigerators for the first new galley.

Less than three months later with test data in his hands and three refrigerators in the back of his truck a TECA rep delivered the goods. Over twenty years later the military and it’s allies around the world are still flying these same refrigerators and ordering more.
