Mokon's Line of Iceman Portable Chillers Just Got Bigger
Press release date: May 3, 2010
BUFFALO, N.Y. - Mokon's line of Iceman Portable Chillers has been expanded with a new unit that offers from ¼ ton up to 40 tons of cooling capacity in both air-cooled and water-cooled designs. These new chillers meet process cooling requirements to 5˚F (-15˚C). The addition of the 40-Ton portable chiller to Mokon's Iceman line is in response to feedback received from customers.
The main feature of the new 40-Ton portable chiller is its tandem compressor arrangement that provides a flexible and energy efficient design solution to ever-changing process cooling requirements. This design offers users the option to run the chiller at 50 percent if loads do not require the full 40 tons of cooling. Another main element of the 40-ton chiller is its Carel uC2 microprocessor-based controller that is specifically designed for chiller applications and provides compressor anti-cycling and lead lag. This feature ensures equal run time and extended life of the two compressors.
The Iceman 40-Ton system also features scroll compressor technology and its benefits of smooth, quiet operation and the ability to tolerate "liquid slugging" during shutdown of the compressor. Refrigerant and process fluid loops are constructed of non corrosive materials, including a stainless steel brazed plate evaporator. Both are standard features in a Mokon Iceman portable chiller.
Mokon's selection of R-407C refrigerant, as of January 2010, provides customers an environmentally friendly refrigerant and comes standard on the complete line of Iceman portable chillers ranging from ¼ ton to 40 tons for process cooling requirements down to 20˚F (-7˚C). Other environmentally friendly refrigerants are available for process cooling down to 5˚F (-15˚C).
For over 55 years, Mokon has set the standard for high quality circulating liquid temperature control systems. Through the development of new products, refinement of existing designs, and our ability to create custom engineered solutions, Mokon has consistently demonstrated its ability to foresee the evolving needs of customers in plastics processing, packaging, converting, composites, medical/pharmaceutical processing, chemical processing, rubber, printing, general processing and many more industries. The company's product line has grown significantly since it first introduced a water temperature control system in 1955 to include heat transfer oil systems, portable and central chillers, pump tanks, cooling towers, blown film coolers, cold climate coolers, engineered and pre-engineered control panels, maintenance products and custom designed/engineered systems.
Mokon's circulating liquid heating and chilling equipment is proudly designed and manufactured in the USA.
