Temperature Control Unit Offers Compact design
Delta T Systems’ Eco family of temperature control units (TCU) has been extended to include the Compact model.
Delta T Systems says the compact, low-profile, black cabinetry of the Eco Series TCUs features analog pressure gauges and a digital display. A new two-tank design allows for either 4.5- or 9-kW of heating and direct injection cooling, and water temperatures of up to 300F are possible. The new Compact Eco Series is available with a ¾-hp pump that delivers 25 gpm at 25 PSI.
The dimensions for the unit are 16.7-by-22-by-17.3 in., and since the Compact has two heater tanks by design, those dimensions are the same whether the unit has 4.5- or 9-kW of heating. Stainless steel piping and a pump are new in this model, according to Delta T. The units are stackable and a kit is available to separate them if that’s required in the future.
The Eco Series features a new pump that reportedly creates 50% to 100% greater flow at the same pressure point on the pump curve compared to other designs. The resulting energy consumption complies with the new DOE standard that became mandatory in January 2020.
Delta T Systems’ Eco family of temperature control units (TCU) now includes the space-saving Compact model.
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.
For decades molding experts have talked about the importance of achieving turbulent flow in mold-cooling circuits. But what is it about turbulence that makes it so important? What can be measured and demonstrated to have some tangible value to molders? Several months ago, the author’s firm began looking for answers.
A plastics molding plant runs on more than electricity—it runs on water.
