“Efficient thermal management plays a vital role in reducing the CO2 footprint of the plastics industry. In addition to demonstrating our technological leadership at the exhibitions in this field in the US and Mexico, we are also honing our image as a reliable business partner providing sophisticated and customised solutions on the American continent,” says Tom Carbery, VP Sales at technotrans America. Visitors to the Plastics Technology Expo can explore the protemp flow 6 ultrasonic eco, a temperature control unit with up to six circuits and maintenance-free ultrasonic flow measurement, among other products. When compared to conventional, uncontrolled peripheral pumps, up to 92 percent annual savings in electricity become possible thanks to the high-efficiency pumps of the unit. Moreover, the compact eco.line series features a loss-free heat transfer system thanks to a “longlife” stainless steel heating cartridge while offering numerous interface and equipment options.
technotrans will also present the teco cs 90t 9.1, a space-saving and energy-efficient temperature control solution with indirect cooling. The exhibit is configured to manage flow rates of 16gal/min (60l/min) at a temperature of 203°F (95°C) while - depending on the series - flow rates of up to 53gal/min (200l/min) at a temperature of up to 356°F (180°C) are possible. A unit version of the base.line product range is available that offers a heating capacity of up to 9 kW along with user-friendly operation via a membrane keypad with a 7-segment display. The high.line product range features a heating capacity of up to 36 kW and a logotherm display and control unit with a 7-inch multi touch screen.
Compact refrigeration technology with high operational reliability
Together with the business partner Gitamsa Koch Tecnologias, technotrans will present service-friendly temperature control solutions and compact refrigeration machines for a wide variety of applications at Expo Plasticos, the Mexican plastics industry exhibition. The air-cooled or water-cooled units feature a high degree of efficiency, high operational reliability, and a long service life. The smallest system variant provides a cooling capacity of 0,45ton (1.5 kW) at a flow rate of 2gal/min (8l/min), whereas the largest variant, xtend 3700 of the ECOtec product range, has a cooling capacity of 105ton (370 kW) at a delivery rate of 290gal/min (65 m³/h).
“Our energy efficient technologies provide the answer to a significant increase in the demand for eco-friendly cooling and temperature control solutions,” pointed out Martin Chacon, Area Sales Manager at technotrans solutions. “Thanks to the vertical range of manufacture, we are offering a unique degree of flexibility on the market – complex, application-specific systems for the plastics processing industry are among our core competencies.”
