COOLING FLUID FLOW

Cooling Fluid Flow:

A customer needed to cool high pressure flow of fluid in a single pass. Using expanded Aluminum foam and attaching it to the surface of AHP-301CP thermoelectric cold plate (peltier cold plate) provided a way to maximize the thermal contact surface and eliminated the need to complex fluid path and larger cold plate.

COLD WELL

Cold Well:

The CWB-01 cold well was first developed as an AHP-1200CPV custom accessory for the petrochemical industry. It replaced the need to maintain ice baths for the storage of chemicals. It has the advantage of good temperature control in either heating or cooling modes. The temperature of the cold plate can be referenced to the fluid temperature or the remote sensibility feature of the CPV can be used to control based on the actual fluid temperatures.

Cold Wells can be made to accommodate many vessel sizes or the ICE-1200 accessory with TECAlab Thermal Beads works well also.

COOLING FLUID FLOW

Chilling liquids being circulated by a peristaltic pump under ultra-clean conditions. When handling and processing various fluids in laboratory and electronic environments cleanliness is a must. Peristaltic pumps have been developed for the purpose of creating a fluid flow without contacting the fluid itself. TECA developed a liquid chiller to cool fluids, while satisfying the same cleanliness requirements.

The solution, based on our successful cold plate product line, has proven to be versatile and effective. Pictured here is the first prototype of a multiple-pass tube cooler for use with a peristaltic pump. Applications range from laboratory to medical to industrial.

R & D LABORATORY

An R&D laboratory needed to quickly cool beakers of high-concentration sucrose samples to 10 °C.  The customer reports that using TECA’s AHP-800MSP Magnetic Stirring Cold/Hot Plate system has been successful.

The customer has different sizes of samples, which are accommodated by TECA’s sleeve accessories. The customer uses 2L, 1.5L, 1L and 800mL sleeves at different times with the AHP-800MSP system. The sleeves are easy to switch in and out and add versatility to the system.

In fact, unique to this product is the adjustable nature of many of its features: stir-bar speed, fan speed (for noise reduction), and temperature sensing (internal or external).

COOLING PURE FLUID FLOW

Cooling Pure Fluid Flow:

The customer needed to cool a very low flow rate of a very pure fluid. Passing tubing through an ice bath did not provide close enough and consistent enough temperature control. However by using the AHP-1200CPV with tube chiller option and by determining the optimum set point a consistently cooled flow of the pure fluid was obtained.

CHEMICAL VAPOR DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM

Chemical Vapor Distribution System:

130-tlc-900

An OEM customer integrates TECA’s Model TLC-900 Liquid Chiller into a bubbler system designed to distribute chemical vapor via a carrier gas. The bubbler vessel is filled with the liquid chemical. The carrier gas is bubbled through the vessel and TECA’s TLC-900 Liquid Chiller maintains the chemical at a temperature determined by the end user, to maximize process control. The customer chose TECA’s TLC-900 Liquid Chiller over others because of its heating and cooling capability and the versatility of its universal input voltage (100-240 VAC). The customer’s system is sold worldwide and quality and reliability are key. The customer shared with us: “Before we used TECA products, we had half a dozen failed units over in China that my boss had to fix. I’m talking chillers that have only been in service for less than 4 months. In all, there have been at least ten of them go bad over the years. Some of the current orders we have with you are replacement units for the failed ones. We love your products. You are putting the competition to shame. Keep up the good work.”

COSMETIC TREATMENT

42-tlc-700
Photofacial treatments using intense pulsed light are said to remove spider veins and age spots, but are uncomfortable for the patient. The apparatus shown uses a TECA Model TLC-700 Peltier based liquid chiller to cool the tip of the hand piece which rests on the skin area under treatment. This enhances the comfort of the patient; allowing for a better quality treatment. The chiller is a closed loop system so no water gets on the patient or the instruments. Water temperature is closely adjustable over a wide range.

COOLING DETECTORS FOR PIPELINE INSPECTION

Cooling Detectors For Pipeline Inspection:

The maintenance supervisor from an inspection company was experiencing over heating of his detectors which are used in his outdoor pipeline inspection process. TECA’s TLC-900 Liquid Chiller was mounted to the back of his truck to aid in cooling two detectors. The components had been close to over heating without the chiller. Using the chiller with 50 feet of hose, the customer obtained a good result, successfully cooling his components down several degrees (Celsius), to a safer and more reliable operating temperature.

The customer has purchased multiple TLC-900 Chillers for the same use in other trucks. With little maintenance required, the TLC-900 has versatile features such as universal input (100-240 VAC), which is helpful in this application as the customer has inspections in Europe and in the USA. The same TLC-900 Chiller can be used in either locale. A PWM temperature controller offers USB communications, programmable ramp & soak profiles, and fan speed control for noise reduction.
