Cooling a NEMA-4 Enclosure with Precision

Cooling a NEMA-4 Enclosure with Precision:

Cooling a NEMA-4 Enclosure with Precision   Cooling Enclosure
A flow testing facility required precise heating and cooling of a NEMA-4 enclosure in an outdoor application. The customer’s NEMA-4 instrument box houses very sensitive transducers and data acquisition equipment.

TECA Model AHP-1200XEHC paired with the TC-3400 remote temperature controller protects the enclosure’s contents from extreme temperatures in the ambient. The customer can monitor and set the controller without opening the NEMA-4 enclosure. Custom programming achieves exact set points as specified by the customer. The sealed, industrial grade external fan allows for wash down of the enclosure and exposure to the outdoor environment, all while maintaining a closed loop system.

GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY SYSTEM

TECA Model AHP-1801XPHC-1 Thermoelectric Air Conditioner is used to enable the safe installation of a gas chromatography system into hazardous locations. Most installations are rated Class 1, Groups C & D, Division II. However in some cases the installations require Group B and/or Group A. TECA’s AHP-1801XPHC-1 maintains the interior of the Process Analyzer Enclosure at a control temperature of around 70o °F.  It meets the various requirements of all the installation environments.

This system is installed in Refining, Petrochemical, Upstream and other applications requiring the aforementioned safety ratings. Controlling the temperature of the equipment enclosure rather than the entire shelter allows for far more economical plant installations even in very cold or very hot environments.

Our customer reports:
“Simply protecting our Process Analyzer Enclosure from direct sunlight and precipitation is enough using the AHP-1801XPHC-1.  The TECA Air Conditioner has plenty of capacity to handle the most demanding environments such as the Texas Gulf Coast and even in Alberta, CA. See the actual plant installation picture where 3 Process Enclosures are shown. The TECA Air Conditioners are clearly evident below each analyzer.  These units have been in operation for more than 2 years without maintenance, without downtime.  This says a lot about the capability and capacity of the TECA product in a tough environment.  And the analyzers have performed flawlessly delivering control quality composition data to the plant process control computer.

COOLING LARGER ENCLOSURES

Cooling Larger enclosures Than Ever Before:

cooling larger enclosures

A user of the Model AHP-6250 Solid-State Air Conditioner gives a wonderful example of the benefit of TECA’s newly introduced line of high-capacity thermoelectric air conditioners.

Designed to cool larger enclosures than was previously practical with thermoelectric technology, the AHP-6250 is one of the largest models in this group. For example, the enclosure pictured here is about 8 x 6 x 3 feet. The customer is able to achieve large enclosure cooling with a single thermoelectric air conditioner. Thermoelectric cooling is reliable and maintenance free.

TECA’s new high-capacity line has some thoughtful design features, as seen pictured here on the installed AHP-6250. The cold side (internal to enclosure) has a low profile, which translates into less intrusion into the enclosure, giving the user more room for whatever the enclosure is meant to hold. The robust mounting flange, gasket and hardware and centrally located power input contribute to user-friendly installation. Finally, high air-flow fans and high fin-density heat sinks on the cold side maximize performance and minimize condensation. An integral condensate removal system absorbs condensation and transports it to the hot side, where it gets evaporated into the ambient.

CORROSIVE ENVIRONMENT

Corrosive Environment:

The AHP-1802XPHC-2 met the customers need in an application where other similar products could not function due to extreme corrosive environment.

The TECA design team in a short notice was able to provide a solution based on a standard AHP-1800X thermoelectric air conditioner.

KIOSK COOLING

Kiosk Thermal Management

Kiosk Cooling:

Kiosk Thermal Management enclosure coolers

 

In the images shown here, TECA Model AHP-1800XE Thermoelectric Air Conditioner is being used successfully to cool electronics in an outdoor kiosk. The desert environment where the kiosk is located sees temperatures upwards of 110 F.

Outdoor kiosks are growing in popularity but typically require more from an active cooling system than their indoor counterparts. Outdoor kiosks have heat generating equipment like LCD screens and computers. In addition, there can be solar loads and high ambient temperatures to contend with. TECA offers many sizes of enclosure coolers for outdoor use, all utilizing low maintenance and reliable thermoelectric cooling technology.

Our customer raves about the results of this TECA-cooled kiosk, “I had not even one maintenance call. During the summer time the surface of the kiosk gets as high as 125 F, and the components were running cooler than the components in our indoor kiosks.”

WIND TURBINE APPLICATION

Wind Turbine:

The applications for AHP-1802XE’s are Vestas wind turbines, one located in Greece and one in the south of Japan.

“We are installing sensitive measurement equipment, and need to control the inside temperature of the measurement panel. One panel is in each of the rotors in the hub and the two others are in the nacelles (rotating and non rotating). We have just decided to make the two panels into one in the nacelle (where the panel in not rotating).”
