polymer emulsion quenching tank with cooling module

Elegant Design

Good design of any cooling system starts with a clear understanding of the host operation and its behaviour. Effective interfacing of a variable load or batch-continuous operation with its cooling equipment is necessary to ensure that the rejection stage runs at maximum efficiency over the full duration of the cycle. A well-designed system will respond organically to imposed loads, with minimal recourse to automated control devices so that it needs no more than (say) an inverter drive or temperature switch to modulate its response. Even when the maths and physics behind an operation might call for some effort, efficiently designed process cooling systems should be elegant in the simplicity of their behaviour and construction.

Dissipator Optimization

Dove Thermal has developed push-pull load management modules to optimize the size and power consumption of radiator, cooling tower, or chiller serving a process; also, manifolded header systems to decouple source and sink behaviours, and split load distribution between different types of dissipator. The forty years' experience behind our industrial and process cooling systems assure their value, reliability and long working life.


Quenching is a fundamental process cooling operation, and entail intimate contact with the operating fluid. This is essential for liquid phase processes where substrates are above quenchant saturation temperature – whether water, aqueous emulsion, mineral oil, or synthetic heat transfer fluid. Various methods may be employed to that end, depending upon whether the operation is being undertaken in air, or submerged in the quenchant. Effective recovery treatment and recirculation are necessary for either method, and are significant factors affecting operational economy. Dove Thermal has developed a free-standing polymer quench tank design incorporating refrigeration equipment for rapid and accurate tempering of the quenchant (as shown in the isometric).
