ICS Cool Energy develops range of Temperature Control Units

12 January 2015

ICS Cool Energy has launched a range of Temperature Control Units (TCUs), i-Temp, which have been re-designed and developed after consulting its customers. 

The units give customers powerful temperature regulation and cooling capabilities with its extensive collection of both water and oil heaters. Dave Palmer, Director of ICS Cool Energy’s Heater Division, explains the decision behind the new range. 

“We have listened to customers across various marketplaces and their calls were clear, for larger units up to 360kW in heating power and steam to water units that can use existing steam on site to heat up processes through our TCUs.

“Customers in the plastics markets need higher temperatures on water units, so we now have two more ranges that can reach 160°C and others that can achieve 200°C. 

“We have also changed our controller to introduce interfaces with the majority of the injection moulding manufacturers, along with advanced features such as mould management, and alarm limits on flow and temperature for extra control on quality.  

“The new i-Temp range offers more cooling, more temperatures and has a better system controller for all units. Whereas previous ranges ended with a 36kW as standard, the i-Temp range has been expanded to 72kW as standard with an availability to reach 360kW; can offer temperatures up to 200°C on water-based units (with 160°C and 200°C ranges); and up to 350°C for heat transfer with oil-based equipment as standard and available up to 400°C. 

Tailor-made features 
“The range of both oil and water units offers a wide variety of pump models with flexible flow rates and higher cooling duties. The units can be tailored to a customer’s specific requirements and even include features such as mould management. This aspect enables the user to download information onto an SD card from the machine and upload a parameter list, ensuring accurate process control for industries including plastics. The cascade control functions are also able to control product temperature with probes going into the jacketed vessel, resulting in higher accuracy and a quicker reaction times. 

Controllers
“The units are readily available with C8 Basic and C8 Advanced controllers, which communicate with the machines to improve accurate and consistent monitoring for process temperatures, and are available in every language. 

“The C8 Advanced control is connected with an Ethernet interface, meaning it uses virtual network computing (VNC) for remote monitoring software. All controls are on one unit with the C8 Advanced controller, meaning that you only have to look at one screen to see what is happening with your equipment.
