CONDENSING VAPOR

Condensing Vapor: AHP-470CP in Laboratory Reactor Instrumentation

condensing vapor   cooling vapor stream

In a chemical process (catalysis), the customer uses several TECA Model AHP-470CP Cold Plates to condense methanol out of a vapor stream and collect liquid in the 100 mL glass vessels shown. The AHP-470CP offers a convenient small size and is customizable to the end user’s needs.

Please see the “Options” section on the product data sheet to learn more.

Equipment Testing & Maintenance

Equipment testing and maintenance:

Equipment Testing & Maintenance  Electronics Testing & Maintenance

Three AHP-1200CPV Cold Plates are running continuously and in tandem at 17 °C to monitor satellite equipment. The customer has added air deflectors of his own design. TECA offers standard air deflectors as well. The customer applies approximately 50 watts of heat to the cold plate.

BATTERY COOLING

R & D Battery Cooling:

battery cooling

In this example, the customer is using TECA’s AHP-1800CPV to keep a 60 pound lithium ion battery cool during R&D testing. This saves the customer the trouble of using a plate with pumped coolant to cool the battery, which was the original method.

The customer reports that upgrading to the TECA AHP-1800CPV “makes testing much easier”.

The AHP-1800CPV is the largest thermoelectric cold plate on the market with a plate surface area of 12.80 x 13.30 inches.  The large surface area and robust cooling power were ideal for this application.

FIBER OPTICS

Fiber Optics:

fiber optics

The customer makes fiber optics and related components and subsystems, they use an AHP-1200CPV cold plate for testing components.

They are using it to run temperature test on them, they set the temperature, and it goes to temperature and sits there, heating or cooling.

“It works well”.  Before they were cobbling together home brew solutions with a heater here, a circuit and a fan there but it’s nice to have a system that does it all.

COOLING ASPHALT SAMPLES

Cooling Asphalt Samples:

cooling asphalt samples

An oil refinery runs tests on asphalt samples at different temperatures.

TECA Model AHP-301CPV Cold Plate is currently being used during the course of the customer’s testing.

The customer says, “We have used this unit at different temperatures, and it has performed well. Thank you for your follow-up on the performance of this device.”

COOLING MOUNTING WAX

Cooling Mounting Wax:

cooling mounting wax cooling mounting wax

 

A product design engineer at a medical device company needed a way to cool wax blocks holding film. The wax is printed directly onto the customer’s aluminum tray. Before discovering TECA products, the customer was placing the aluminum tray in a refrigerator and mechanically removing the wax by scraping it off with a metal blade.

TECA’s AHP-1200CP Cold Plate is a better solution. The customer is happy to have found an affordable cold plate to dedicate to his cooling task.

Please view the video provided by our customer to see how quickly and easily the wax is now removed (no more scraping!).

CHEMICAL WASTE TRANSPORT

Chemical Waste Transport:

chemical waste transport

Here’s an application that our engineering crew would love to put into greater use if they could figure out where and how. A specialty gas company called. They wanted to transfer toxic and corrosive liquids from big to small containers for lab use. The process had been taking several minutes with too much wasted product.

They knew because of the conditions a natural head pressure in the big container that they could use a cold plate to cool at the receiving vessel (Ø 1.5″ x 12″ bottle) to create a driving force which moves the fluid.

We didn’t go into the physics of this, we trusted what the customer said and worked with them. When they tried an AHP-1200CP it was fantastic. It turned 4 minutes and a lot of waste into no waste and 40 seconds.
