Delta T Systems donated a 2-ton variable speed air-cooled chiller to the Plastics Engineering Technology program in the Department of Engineering Technology at Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kan. The chiller will be used as part of the school’s program to help students gain detailed technical knowledge and skills.
Pittsburg State’s accredited Plastics Engineering Technology program plans to use the chiller extensively as part of its Advanced Injection Molding course. It also will be used for other projects in the Plastics Processing Laboratory such as blow molding and extrusion. The installation was completed when the unit’s supply and return piping was connected to Pittsburg State’s three injection molding machines.
The chiller can operate efficiently at full capacity as a 2-ton chiller, or at any lower chilling capacity down to 0.2 tons, according to Delta T Systems.
