Temperature control unit offers heating and chilling in one package
Mokon Full Range system uses circulating water to control temperature for vessels and reactors.
Full Range process temperature control system from Mokon offers a combination heating and chilling system in one convenient package. The company says these units are ideal for applications that require a wide variety of temperatures, and can be used with jacketed vessels, reactors, multiple-zone processes, laboratory, sanitary, food processing, chemical processing, and other processes that require both heating and chilling.
The system integrates a Mokon circulating-water system with an Iceman chiller to provide heating and chilling from a single, compact, self-supporting unit. It is also practical for applications that require multi-zone control and installations where supply water or drains are not accessible.
The Full Range System is available in heating capacities up to 96 kW, pumping capacities up to 120 gpm, chilling capacity from 2 to 40 tons, and has a temperature range of 20 to 300˚F (-7 to 149 ˚C). Full Range Systems offer many standard features including:
• Stainless steel centrifugal pumps;
• Efficient brazed plate evaporator;
• Insulated nonferrous plumbing and components;
• Microprocessor-based controller with LED readout;
• NEMA-rated electrical enclosure with safety disconnect switch; and
• Heater canister with stainless steel diverter.
Mokon's Full Range Systems meet NFPA 79 electrical safety standards for industrial machinery and are equipped with UL labeled electrical sub-panels. The company says the overall design provides for long-life, durability, and accurate continuous process control. Mokon will custom design systems to meet specific process requirements, including NEMA 4, NEMA 4x, or special washdown demands. A wide variety of additional options are available, including stainless steel construction.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
