A case in point
Published: 17 July 2012 - Michelle Lea
When choosing a temperature control system, decisions are often made by comparing manufacturer catalogue data; but this, says Huber, can be misleading as heating and cooling power specifications give little indication of performance. Good temperature control is about efficient heat transfer to the application, which results in smaller less expensive units, reduced resource consumption and increased process profit margins.
Huber Unistats are a range of hydraulically sealed temperature control systems with a temperature range of -120°C to +425°C. Unlike conventional thermostats, they have no internal bath, reducing the heat transfer fluid volume to a low minimum. The plate heat exchanger provides a large surface area over which the thermal fluid flows and low pressure pumps ensure that high flow rates are achieved, improving the speed and efficiency of heat transfer. To demonstrate the benefits of effective heat transfer, Huber has produced over 200 case studies, which can be downloaded from the company’s website.
