Thermal Care's Aquatherm RQE Series - Mold Temperature Control

Now with up to 70% more flow without increased pump size.  Comes in a compact cabinet for all configurations.

Accurate, dependable and easy-to-use - When you need a compact water temperature control nit for your application, you can count on Thermal Care.

The Aquatherm RQE Series Temperature Controllers provide the best available components such as cast pump volute/heater tube/mixing assemblies, high flow pumps with leak-resistant silicon carbide seals and rugged Incoloy sheathed heaters for years of maintenance free operation.  Each control system comes with a large, user-friendly operator interface that provides a wide array of operational and diagnostic information.


Thermal Care's Portable Accuchiller Family

EQ (1 to 3 ton), NQ (4 to 40 tons), NQV (5 to 20 tons)

Providing a suite of efficient, reliable, and high-quality industrial packaged chillers.  The Accuchiller combines a refrigeration chiller and pumping system in a portable industrial-grade cabinet.

EQ Series Portable Chillers feature a compact footprint with an easily accessible interior and a microprocessor that provides precise temperature control and extensive diagnostics.  Air-cooled, water-cooled and remote condenser models are packed with many standard innovative features that improve chiller performance and reliability.

NQ Series Portable Chillers use components such as R410A refrigerant, scroll compressors, micro-channel condensers, low noise fans, stainless steel brazed plate evaporators, and sophisticated controls provide the best available technologies for the ultimate performance and reliability in a chiller package.

NQV Variable Speed Chillers have the same great features as the NQ Series, but with the addition of an optional variable speed compressor for significant energy savings.  Available on 5, 10, 15, and 20 ton NQ Series.  This conventional portable chiller uses a compressor running at a continuous speed, also known as a fixed speed compressor. Regardless of the requirements placed on it by the process load, the compressor speed remains at 100%. Fixed speed chillers employ a “hot gas bypass” to maintain the demand on the compressor to avoid wide fluctuations in the coolant temperature delivered to the process for consistent output.

NQV Variable Speed Chillers with advanced PLCs are at the technological forefront of the process cooling industry. The controller constantly monitors the heat load and adjusts the compressor speed for peak efficiency and temperature control and eliminates the need for hot gas bypass. By automatically adjusting the compressor speed, the chiller works only as hard as necessary to provide optimum performance with significantly reduced power use. Studies have shown that a 20% reduction in motor speed can lead to a 51% energy savings.


Thermal Care's TCF Series Central Chiller

Single Circuit Chiller 100 tons

Thermal Care offers the new TCF Central Chiller which combines the efficiencies of both a hybrid file evaporator and a Turbocor variable speed centrifugal compressor to deliver optimum full and part load efficiencies. The result is one of the most energy efficient central chillers ever build.

Features

  • Water cooled single circuit model
  • Advanced PLC System maintains stable and reliable operation of the chiller
  • Hybrid film evaporator for the most efficient heat transfer
  • Direct-drive variable-speed Turbocor centrifugal compressor technology continuously adjusts speed to match load and reduce operating costs
  • C-UL 508A listed and labeled industrial control panel
  • Rotary circuit breaker for compressor
  • Single point connection for electrical hookup at control cabinet
  • Only one major moving part - the compressor impeller which is used to compress gas and provides the highest full load efficiency and less energy use.
  • Modular expansion to over 600 tons using up to six chillers.
  • TC Series Chillers come standard with Dynamic Lift technology

Thermal Care's Pump Tank Systems

Tank Systems for Cooling Tower and Central Chiller Applications

Thermal Care offers a complete line of pre-engineered tank systems for cooling tower and central chiller applications with the highest quality design and construction features available. Standard, full sized pump trim, extended pump suctions legs, welded seams and solid steel decking under pumps and a PLC are just some of the value-added features incorporated into every system. 

Features

  • Available in fiberglass or stainless steel for indoor or outdoor installations
  • PLC for quick and easy operation
  • Premium-efficiency, close-coupled, non-overloading, centrifigual pumps provide optimum flow and pressure with reduced electrical costs
  • All pumps are mounted on a solid deck for added rigidity, serviceability, and safety
  • Grooved pipe connecting system reduces the need for flexible couplings and eliminates pipe stress at start-up; connections readily disassemble for fast maintenance and reconfiguration when adding or changing pumps
  • Full size pump suction legs on stainless steel tanks feature a 45° angle opening to prevent vortexing and pump cavitation, which can lead to pump damage and reduced pump performance
  • Liquid filled pump discharge pressure gauges enable accurate flow adjustment; isolation cocks prevent gauge pressure fluctuation and extend pressure gauge life
  • Factory mounted thermometer allows quick monitoring of process water temperature
  • Discharge check valve stops supply line flowback, eliminates the potential for water hammer at pump start-up
  • Properly sized pump suction and discharge piping trim eliminates excessive pressure drop and maximizes flow to process
  • Prewired and mounted control panel is hardwired to pump motors using weatherproof conduit, simplifying field installation and reducing installation costs (optional)
  • Suction buttlerfly valve allows pump to be changed without draining the reservoir
  • Automatic water make-up assembly maintains constant water level
  • Low level alarm protects pumps and alerts operator to problems quickly
  • External sight glass with shutoff valves
  • Overflow and fill drain connections
