Schematic of the ICEtemp and free cooling water supply
Cooling systems specialist, IsoCool, has launched a new chiller to the UK market that it says can improve product quality and production rates for plastic manufacturers.
The ‘ICEtemp’ precision water-cooled chiller, manufactured by cooling OEM, Eurochiller, is a beside-the-machine unit that IsoCool says includes a range of technologically advanced features, including three temperature zones, a wide temperature range, integrated free cooling, and automatic mould emptying.
The ICEtemp multi-circuit chiller is said to allow for simultaneous heating and cooling of the mould thanks to three control zones that automatically adjust temperature, flow rates, and pressure according to the heating or cooling demands of the process.
Temperature flexibility, says IsoCool, is increased with the ICEtemps’ temperature range of 5OC to + 90OC, while temperature accuracy is achieved – to within a tenth of a degree – thanks to the chillers’ advanced three-way proportional valve.
In addition, the ICEtemp is said to boast integrated free cooling when used in conjunction with a free cooling water supply. Depending on the cooling needs of the process and ambient conditions, users can benefit from “exceptional energy and cost savings”, says IsoCool’s Director, Nigel Hallet, giving the product an “excellent” return on investment.
The ICEtemp is available in standard models from 5.6kW to 80.8kW and can also be manufactured according to specific customer requirements.
