CHICAGO (Aug. 7, 5:50 p.m. EDT) — Mokon of Buffalo, N.Y., said it has reorganized production and begun marketing complete centralized cooling systems.
The company also introduced its Hydrotherm II circulating-water temperature-control system, which has stainless steel as the main component for wetted surfaces, according to Jeff Mallon, Mokon sales manager. Most systems use carbon steel or cast iron, he said.
The system has a two-pass stainless-steel heating canister. Fluid travels over the heating elements to increase heat-transfer efficiency. The unit's base price is $1,595.
Mokon reorganized its fabrication shop to allow manufacturing of pump tanks up to 4,000 gallons instead of its previous maximum of 2,500 gallons. Along with its tank line, Mokon now resells cooling towers and chillers.
Also at NPE 2006 in Chicago, Mokon introduced a redesigned HF-2 Series within its line of heat-transfer fluid systems. Mokon switched to a canister design from a manifold tube design, reduced the footprint and weight and welded the connections instead of threading them. The base price is $12,595.
In May, Underwriters Laboratories Inc. certified Mokon's electrical subpanels. Historically, Mokon has built its panels to UL specifications, but only recently requested certification. Mokon becomes the first company in the market for circulating-liquid temperature-control systems to offer UL certification as a standard feature across its product line, Mallon said.
Mokon, which employs 40, is a division of Protective Closures Co. Inc.
