The environment of a paper mill is hostile to most equipment. Could a thermoelectric cooler stand up to such conditions?
TECA Model AHP-1200X Solid State Air Conditioner is a perfect solution. This TECA model AHP-1200Xwas returned to TECA for evaluation, after over 120,000 hours of duty. It just did not seem to cool as much any more. As a matter of fact, it was originally put to work in 1992 cooling an electronic enclosure in a paper mill. The customer was sure it needed to be replaced, but sent it back to us to see if anything could be salvaged.
In our inspection we found that the hot side heat sink was fouled with 14 years of newsprint sludge. Once the goop was cleaned out and the fan was free to spin; the unit ran like a charm!
