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.
A customer serving the national security market specializes in remote sensing solutions. TECA Corporation’s thermoelectric, rack-mounted RLC-1400 Liquid Chiller improves the customer’s product efficiency by reliably cooling a laser and high-power electrical components, as part of an airborne system.
Production testing (cooling device under test)
TECA’s RLC-1800 Rack Mounted Liquid Chiller offers powerful cooling as a component in the customer’s testing procedure. The customer, developing testing for a radar system, has a device under test (DUT) which contains cold plates. TECA’s RLC-1800 provides liquid cooling to the cold plates and prevents them from over heating during the process. The RLC-1800 is the most powerful liquid chiller we offer, with 620 watts cooling capacity.
Flue Gas Analysis:
The customer uses the TECA TLC-702HC in a heating and cooling process in a laboratory setting. The customer’s PSA system is removing CO2 from flue gas and drying and analyzing the flue gas. The TLC-702HC is available in 120 or 240 VAC versions. Heat/Cool or Cool-Only configurations are available.
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.
