BEVERAGE INDUSTRY

Beverage Industry Equipment cooling:

beverage industry 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

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.

LAB MEASUREMENT EQUIPMENT

Lab Measurement Equipment:

A world’s leading international supplier of equipment, controls and parts to glass container industry uses the peltier air conditioner model FHP-750XE in a statistical sampling and lab measurement product.

A MiniLab Automatic Sampling installation works in conjunction with the production’s online inspection equipment and a Factory Process Control System. The MiniLab Controller communicates to the Process Control System which then sends a container “request” to upstream online inspection systems equipped with mold number readers. The “requested” containers are transferred to the MiniLab sampling conveyor using container ware selectors. With broad-based expertise in glass container forming, glass conditioning, gob forming, ware handling, cold end inspection, refractory parts and quality assurance, the company’s machines and systems are established as standard products worldwide.

The FHP-750 has been working fine for them for years. Reasons for its selection are its reliability and ability to operate in high ambient temperatures.

MILITARY COMMUNICATIONS

Military Communications:

military communications

A branch of the US military had a need for cooling a small enclosure containing a critical voice communication system. The shipboard system had to be resistant to salt water corrosion as well as pass stringent shock and vibration testing.

Modifications to TECAs AHP-300X solid air conditioner allowed the unit to meet specializing and air flow requirements and pass these tests. The challenge was to overcome the small available space both inside and outside the enclosure. The heat sinks were turned so that the heat rejection air flow and internal cold side air flow moved in different directions.

This unit is a prime example of how flexible Team TECA is when customer needs require customization of standard products.

COMMUNICATIONS

A major manufacturer of communications equipment was to go into production of special equipment enclosures, then encountered unforeseen problems with overheating electronics deep inside. The customer wanted air conditioning, but specified that no part of the air conditioner could protrude outside of their enclosure.

TECA designed a little air conditioner inside ducts for hot air exhaust. This way the air conditioner is actually housed entirely inside the enclosure and our customer continues production.

COMPACT MILITARY AIR CONDITIONER

The contact to engineering read pretty much like this:

  • Wants A/C, 17.5 x 5.5 footprint, 150 W @ 0 Dt, He is in a hurry
  • Desert Application
  • Unit will require transport in, then it will sit for months, then it will go somewhere else
  • Single set point 35 °C control?
  • Size, can go 6″ on the outside

We suggested AHP-1200X, he said they didn’t choose because of no DC.  We could make it DC!  Nope, won’t fit, air flows are bad, 24 VDC, running off generator, NEMA 4X, Mil grade fans, 50 °C max, urgent need!

A little more than month later the order was placed and about 6 weeks after that a batch of custom air conditioners was being shipped.
