The eVap 1000 is a stand-alone, bread-box size unit that mounts inside fume hoods and can provide a convenient source of lower pressure cool water necessary for laboratory operations. The eVap 1000 saves money, space and energy in lab spaces. The device will help lab spaces depart from traditional methods of cooling water including simple rubber tubing or via a small chiller unit. These methods can be effective but create problems including the waste of potable fresh water, possible lab flooding, damaged equipment and the loss of space and creation of unnecessary noise. The eVap 1000 eliminates these concerns.
The eVap 1000 connects to an existing building process water loop using high pressure hoses that lock on to the unit. A variable speed pump can control water flow to achieve desired temperatures which allows for additional energy saving and reduced pressure. The eVap plate and frame exchanger design uses metal plates to separate the water steams and cool the water going to the laboratory experiment.
Building managers who operate laboratory space and researchers would be interested in the financial and energy savings along with the improved laboratory environment provided by eVap 1000. It is a revolutionary piece of equipment that can alter laboratory environments for the better.
The eVap 1500 Heat Exchanging Water Chillers offer an efficient means to cool laboratory processes and equipment without using tap water or air cooled chiller units with compressors. This eliminates the related flood risks associated with using tap water, saves potentially thousands of gallons of fresh water a day at continuous use, and reduces the heat, noise, and complexity associated with local compressor chiller units.
The unit is designed to be completely portable, connect to a standard 100 volt outlet and can be used wherever there is access to a cooling water source. When operating, the unit will circulate a small amount of chilled water to laboratory equipment at an adjustable flow rate and pressure to meet the equipment’s cooling needed. Tap water can be used for the lab equipment cooling fluid. Water quality should be periodically monitored and flushed or chemically treated to prevent buildup of bacteria and other contaminants.
