Minneapolis, MN – Minco has a new line of heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) temperature sensors designed to protect chillers in air handling equipment in commercial buildings. The new sensor line is called the Chill-Out™ Combination Sensor.
Visit Minco’s Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Calculator to see your true savings if you install both a freeze stat low limit device and an averaging sensor.
Most schools, hospitals, office complexes and other commercial buildings use a device called a Freeze Stat, along with an averaging sensor to protect against freezing temperatures. The solid state, low temperature cut-out Chill-Out sensor has a number of advantages over traditional Freeze Stat/averaging sensor technology:
— Minco’s Chill-Out™ Combination Sensor replaces the Freeze Stat, but, unlike the Freeze Stat, it has two sensors in one easy-to-install package. One is a low-temp
cut-out sensor and one is an independent averaging-temp sensor. This dual sensor package delivers accurate measurements and eliminates the need to install a separate averaging sensor.
— Saves $13K-$35K over a typical Freeze Stat/averaging sensor installation.
— There are no capillary tubes to break, leak or kink.
— Considered a “green” product by the industry as it is solid state and has no harmful gases or chemicals.
— Easy mounting in any direction. Horizontal orientation is not required.
— Relay changes state to deliver a failure detection signal in the event of a power loss.
— Low-temp sensitivity within a 12-inch segment, versus 18 inches with gas-filled capillary tubes.
— Easily formed aluminum or ultra flexible PVC coated galvanized armor sensor case.
— 4 to 20 mA temperature loop output available with optional Temptran™ transmitter.
— No diaphragm case needed.
The Chill-Out Sensor is described in the handy Sensors & Instruments Solutions Guide. The free 163-page guide explains various temp sensing solutions for process building automation and other commercial applications. The guide has complete technical data on sensor assemblies, probes, miniature sensors, sanitary sensors, stator RTDs, HVAC temperature and humidity sensors, flexible sensors, elements, instruments, transmitters and accessories. In addition to the Guide, a Non-Invasive Sensors Design Kit is also available.
