Carbon-ceramic brake discs are increasingly required in the automotive sector, for application on high performance vehicles, due to the extremely high levels of braking performances that they offer. The technology involved in the production process of this kind of brake discs is highly sophisticated, and requires a strictly confidential know-how.
Tempco is since a few years a trusted supplier of one of the leading builders of this kind of braking systems, having supplied already in the past a cooling unit solution for the furnaces.
Mita Cooling Technologies, a company specialized in cooling towers and a longtime collaborator of Tempco, will introduce the new PAD-V series of adiabatic coolers at Plast 2018, the international exhibition dedicated to innovative technologies for the plastic and rubber industry in Fiera Milano Rho, May 29- June 1, offering increased energy efficiency in an even more compact design.
The PAD-V series is a free cooling solution for fluid cooling and the condensation of refrigerants, designed for heat dissipation capacities of 75 to 1.100 kW. The combination with chillers allows not only to suspend the employ of compressors during the winter season, with dry operations and leveraging on low temperatures of external air, but thanks to the adiabatic process the solution extends the benefits of energy saving also during the summer season.
In the automotive sector there are several applications in which we provide our equipments, especially for thermoregulation in engines test bench. The test bench are very sophisticated, being employed for the simulation, testing and control of the performances of engines, a challenging task in terms of precision in temperature regulation and quick response of the thermoregulation units.
The disposal and smelting of lead batteries commonly employed in cars, but also used on industrial vehicles such as lifters and others applications, is a complex and delicate topic, requiring a series of specific technologies.
Tempco engineers and supplies since many years lead recycling sector’s companies solutions intended for burner’s lances cooling feeding the smelting furnaces.
The task involves a special application of the TFIN dissipators, with a special construction using special materials due to the highly aggressive environments of this industry. The dissipators are usually installed in a remote site inside the plants, and are equipped with proper pumping skid systems T FLOW.
All the equipments, both the coolers and the pumping groups, are redundant, in order to avoid failures and downtimes as in this kind of plants once the smelting process has started it cannot be stopped until the end of the treatment.
Nanofluids are a very interesting field of study in the improving of efficiency in cooling and heat transfer applications, with a variety of R&D projects actually focused on them. Nanofluids are colloidal suspensions of nanoparticles in a traditional thermal transfer fluid, such as water, glycol or oil, offering augmented conductivity and higher thermal transfer rate. Nanomaterials bring indeed improved and orginal mechanical, thermal, electrical, magnetic and optical properties.
Potential applications of nanofluids are limitless, in the HVAC sector and chillers, in heat exchangers efficiency, in fuel cells, absorption chillers and concentrated solar power collectors. Nanotech fluids can then also be employed as nanolubricants, as the addition of nanoparticles and nanotubes to a traditional mineral oil base increase heat dissipation and tribological properties of a common lubricants, with boosted wear resistance that extends the lifecycle of mechanical moving parts in motors and compressors in chillers.
In metallurgy industry, oxy-fuel cutting plants are employed to cut hot rolled metals.
Plants working on a continuous cycle are equipped with torches that work 24/7 at high temperatures, with a relevant stress level of the materials.
Tempco produces since many years a complete solution for the cooling of this kind of machinery, using a water circulating system and a cooling system in close-circuit.
For a power generation site employing internal combustion engines we provided an emergency dissipation system. The challenges we had to face during this installation were two: first, the location, Port Sudan, on the Red Sea shore, thus presenting harsh environment conditions. In addition, the dissipators were intended as substitution of pre-existing radiators, impossible to recover, thus requiring to adapt the new equipments to the limited installation space, while ensuring enhanced performances.
The production of polypropylene extruded calendered sheets requires a fine and constant temperature control of calender rollers.
For an application in production lines of polypropylene extruded and calendered sheets we have realized a thermoregulation unit with a temperature working range between +20° C and +120° C, according to the production step.
In Tempco we are engineering some TREG HC ST mono-fluid thermoregulation units to serve the reactors in a chemical facility of a customer near Milan, part of the Dow Chemical Group. The plant manufactures special materials for the adhesives market, mainly employed in food packaging, automotive industry and paper plastification.
The units are realized as thermoregulation Atex skids, aimed to suit the operations in a chemical industry environment.
Case histories and applications of TCOIL dimple jacket plate exchangers are really endless, thanks to the extreme versatility of this special kind of heat exchangers, able to suit and tailorize a wide number of different industrial processes.
