New Environmentally-Friendly Recirculating Chiller Saves Operating Costs and CO2

Sep 18 2020 Read 1192 Times

IKA extends its range of recirculating chillers with the addition of the powerful and environmentally-friendly RC 2 GREEN basic and control models. These new devices combine a natural coolant with the tried and tested demand-controlled compressor technology. The result: Brilliant energy-efficiency, CO2 savings from the first hour of operation and a reduction in operating costs.

Plant 163 trees or choose the RC 2 GREEN: You can save up to 4 tons of CO2 over a period of ten years using the new circulation cooler as compared to conventional equipment. This corresponds to a return flight from Frankfurt to New York. IKA achieves this significant reduction in the CO2 footprint as a result of the environmentally-friendly and natural coolant R 290 and the energy-efficient compressor technology.

The coolant R 290 is classed as a pure hydrocarbon. It does not damage the ozone layer and has only a slight greenhouse potential. In addition, it has very good thermodynamic properties and promises a long service life for the recirculating chiller, even with future utilisation requirements. When combined with the demand-regulated compressor in the RC 2 GREEN, a cooling capacity of 800 Watt and a minimum temperature of -30°C is achieved . Not only is this good for the environment, but it also saves €150 - €250 per year of operation, calculated over a ten year period.

Both variants of the device are developments of the RC 2 recirculating chiller. However, at 800 W, the RC 2 GREEN conceals double the cooling capacity, in identical housing, thus saving 30% in installation footprint and half the device volume when compared to competitive devices. The result is a space-saving operation of two rotary evaporators, each having an evaporator flask of 1000 ml.

In addition, the RC 2 GREEN offers everything one would expect to see in a good recirculating chiller: a powerful pressurisation and suction pump, a high-quality fine-mesh stainless steel filter and, of course, the typical IKA modern and user-friendly design incorporating intuitive menu navigation. The display on the control variant can be removed. This permits straightforward remote operation, freeing up space immediately around the working environment for additional essential laboratory equipment.

The IKA recirculating chiller product group now includes a total of six devices. They are all particularly suited for cooling in extraction processes and in combination with rotation vaporisers and laboratory reactors.
