Thermal Care Inc.'s redesigned TX Series has a smaller footprint to take up 25 percent less floor space than previous models. Two independent refrigeration circuits with manifolds and service valves on evaporators and condensers allow for routine maintenance without downtime. Stainless steel brazed plate evaporators require less refrigerant. On water-cooled units, PLC-controlled electronic water-regulating valves with solid-state sensors offer closer control and more stable system operation. Screw compressors have fewer moving parts and lower torque to better tolerate liquid slugging. Chillers are available from 80 to 212 tons in air-cooled, water-cooled or remote condenser models.
