02/01/2010


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

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
