Thermal Care Water-Cooled Chillers Achieve Global Performance Certification
The Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) has certified Thermal Care’s Accuchiller line of water-cooled portable, packaged and central chillers.
Thermal Care announced that the Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) has certified its Accuchiller line of water-cooled portable, packaged and central chillers. Thermal Care notes that AHRI Certified is a globally recognized program that assures equipment will achieve the highest performance rating standards.
To become AHRI Certified, equipment is subjected to annual evaluation from a third-party laboratory under contract to AHRI to ensure the equipment performs according to the participant’s published claims. Only products certified by AHRI are listed in AHRI’s Directory of Certified Product Performance real-time database. Certificates can be downloaded from the AHRI directory on certified chillers to conduct energy performance comparisons between manufacturers and to provide accredited data for programs such as energy rebate incentive programs.
Bob Smith, Director of Engineering at Thermal Care, said the certification allows its customers to have an unbiased source to comparing the performance of its water-cooled chillers to any other certified water-cooled chiller.
Thermal Care’s water-cooled portable, packaged and central chillers are now AHRI Certified.
Injection molders are warming up to the idea of cycling their tool surface temperature during the molding cycle rather than keeping it constant.
Modifications to the common core pin can be a simple solution, but don’t expect all resins to behave the same. Gas assist is also worth a try.
The hot-and-cold molding process gives molders a new tool to achieve top-quality esthetics or to fill challenging thin-wall parts. There are a number of options in heating methods, and this article discusses the ins and outs of each.
