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.
