ICS Cool Energy has expanded its i-TEMP temperature control units (TCU) portfolio with the introduction of the Eco.line series.

The new i-Temp Compact Eco.line units are designed to meet the requirements of plastic moulding processes and other industrial applications.

All Eco.line models are equipped with pump efficiency module (PEM) as standard. Compared to conventional technologies with uncontrolled peripheral pumps, the Eco.line solutions are expected to achieve power savings of up to 92%, translating into reduction in carbon emissions. Additionally, the compact Eco.line systems utilise a stainless-steel heating cartridge and offer a range of interface and equipment options.

“The new Eco.line series sets a new standard for sustainability, energy efficiency and user convenience in temperature control," said Dave Palmer, general manager for UK at ICS Cool Energy. "Focus on reducing our customers’ carbon emissions and optimising process conditions drives and shapes our offering. The Eco.line series delivers reliable temperature control and superior performance while significantly reducing energy consumption, thereby enhancing the stability and efficiency of our customers' processes.”

Key features and benefits of the i-Temp Compact Eco.line

  • Advanced Control Systems: The units include the compactControl controller with a seven-inch multi-touch display, offering user-friendly operation and various pump speed control options for optimal performance.
  • Sustainability and Cost-Effectiveness: Eco.line's reduction in electricity consumption leads to lower carbon footprints and operational cost savings. For Eco.line unit with centrifugal pump in control mode (ΔT control), in a typical three-shift operation, under production conditions with the flow rate at 85l/min and heating capacity at 27kW: annual energy use can be as low as 1,160 kWh, providing notable cost and environmental benefits.
  • 10-year guarantee on heating elements.
  • The i-Temp range is manufactured specifically for ICS Cool Energy.

    The i-Temp Compact base.line, high.line, eco.line and i-Temp flex.line series utilise a modular design with various combinations of heating and cooling elements to cater to a variety of applications such as plastics and composite processing, food processing, rubber extrusion, chemical, pharmaceutical and OEM manufacturing. With both direct and indirect cooling options available, these water, steam to water and oil temperature control units come equipped with advanced controllers for accurate control and repeatability of process temperatures up to 400°C.

    The new Eco.line series and other TCUs are a component in the ICS Cool Energy training suite, launched at its facility in Totton. This lab is designed to provide hands-on training for technicians and customers, ensuring they gain practical expertise in the setup, installation, and maintenance of the equipment. By incorporating real-life simulations and comprehensive educational resources, the training suite enables participants to understand and optimise the performance of their temperature control systems.
