IKA has extended its range of recirculating chillers with the addition of the powerful and environmentally-friendly RC 2 GREEN basic and control models, which combine a natural coolant with tried and tested demand-controlled compressor technology.
The R 290 coolant is classed as a pure hydrocarbon. It does not damage the ozone layer and has only a slight greenhouse potential. It also has very good thermodynamic properties and promises a long service life for the recirculating chiller, even with future utilisation requirements.
Its combination with the demand-regulated compressor in the RC 2 GREEN achieves a cooling capacity of 800 Watt and a minimum temperature of -30 °C. IKA estimates a saving of between 150 to 250 Euros per year of operation, or up to 4 tons of CO2 calculated over a ten year period.
Both variants of the device are developments of the RC 2 recirculating chiller. However, at 800W, the RC 2 GREEN features double the cooling capacity, in identical housing. The result is space-efficient operation of two rotary evaporators, each having a evaporator flask of 1000 ml.
The RC 2 GREEN also features a powerful pressurisation and suction pump, a high-quality fine-mesh stainless steel filter and, a modern and user-friendly design incorporating intuitive menu navigation. The display on the control variant can be removed to enable straightforward remote operation.
