Air Cooled, Recirculating Chiller for Wide Temperature Range or High Ambient Temperature
Current Customer Applications:
- semiconductor equipment
- point-of-use temperature control
Why choose ThermoCube 265?
- For a Wide Range of Temperature Setpoints: -15 to 125 °C
- For High Ambient Temperatures: continuous operation in up to 50 °C ambient temperatures
- Reliable Refrigerant-Free Thermoelectric Technology: With lifetimes exceeding 200,000 hours, the thermoelectric modules at the core of this chiller make for ultra-high intrinsic reliability.
- Compact Size: just 12" (30 cm) on a side
- Precise Temperature Control: ThermoCube's digital PID control holds to ±0.05°C, even near ambient.
- Versatile: For use with water/glycol solutions, water/alcohol, Fluorinert, HFE or water
- Worldwide Power Compatibility, Universal Input Standard
- Energy Efficient: ThermoCube's thermoelectric modules are powered by a variable voltage power supply that provides the minimum power required to control temperature at set point, so ThermoCube only draws as much power as needed (typically <300 W AC).
- Whisper-Quiet: ThermoCube 265W runs at 63 dBA
- Virtually Vibration-Free
- Easy-to-Use controller for fixed temperature control
- Air Cooled: Does not require house or facility chilled water. Can operate in any standard room, laboratory or office.
- High Pressure Pumps Standard: ThermoCube's standard pump is capable of delivering up to 50 psi for laser diode and other high-pressure applications.
