Teco finally announced the availability of the new E-Chill for summer 2011, of which we had already seen a large demonstration at the Nuremberg Interzoo last year.
Designed to be used in conjunction with a chiller in order to be able to cool also big tanks. According to calculations made by Teco, it allows an energy saving of about 30% if they are installed together with a chiller because they allow a significant shortening of time to use the same chiller. Similarly, the set temperature is reached certainly more quickly.
If, of course, will be installed alone can lower the temperature of the aquarium promoting evaporation but its performance will depend greatly on the relative humidity in the room.
Equipped with digital thermostat and three performance levels to set by the user is aesthetically appealing and very interesting.
We hope to have one of this to test very soon and then be able to make a thorough test before the summer heat.
Teco will also be exhibiting at the fair in Bologna, during the Zoomark, ready for summer sale.
The three models are:
E-chill1 suitable for tanks up to 500 liters, a 12V power supply, consumption of 8W with a weight of 0.5 kg and a size of 130x220x200 (h)
E-chill2 suitable for tanks up to 800 liters, a 12V power supply, consumption of 14W for a weight of 0.75 kg and a size of 260x220x200 (h)
E-chill3 suitable for tanks up to 1,500 liters, a 12V power supply, consumption of 20W for a weight of 0.1 kg and a size of 390x220x200 (h)
