TEP-400 Thermoelectric Portable Gas Chiller

TEP-400 Thermoelectric Portable Gas Chiller

The TEP-400 Thermoelectric Portable Gas Cooler removes water vapor from process gas samples prior to gas analysis.

The TEP-400 is the perfect choice for your portable gas sampling system. We listened and we strive to deliver a fast response that is lightweight, portable, and rugged.

Description

Gas Sampling Equipment for Instrumental Methods:

The TEP-400 has an aluminum block containing a single-pass stainless-steel condenser, a sample pump, a peristaltic pump for condensate removal, a coalescing filter, flow meter, and three auxiliary temperature controllers (probe, filter and heated sample line jumper). The rugged and lightweight design allows the chiller to be used on the sampling platform, close to the source.

Water vapor is removed by cooling the sample gas to a constant dew point with the Apex Pinnacle Heat pump. The Pinnacle assembly in the TEP-400 utilizes two thermoelectric modules, which operate on the Peltier effect.

The Pinnacle heat pump is housed in a rugged package that is easy to service and designed to withstand harsh environments.

The condenser is fabricated from 316 stainless steel and can be treated with a variety of coatings: silicon, polyfluorinated, silane; polar or non-polar. The micro annular flow channel provides maximum condensation efficiency with minimum contact time. The single condenser setup improves response time.

Pinnacle Cooling Unit

The Pinnacle heat pump unit includes a highly conductive aluminum block fitted with two rugged thermoelectric modules, a stainless-steel condenser, a high-efficiency heat exchanger, exhaust fan, and a PID temperature controller.

The heat pump uses an extremely reliable rugged solid-state thermoelectric module (TEC) and a low-resistance heat exchanger with a copper base and heat pipes with high thermal conductivity for removing heat from the hot side of the TEC and dispersing the heat to the surrounding environment via the exhaust fan.
