COMBINATION SYSTEMS

Cooling Capacity: -60F
Heating Capacity: +400F

For applications that require a combination of temperature control at both ends of the cooling & heating spectrum.

Are you in one of the following industries and have a process that requires both cooling and heating?

  • Chemical
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Oil & Gas
  • Testing Laboratories

CONTAINERIZED SYSTEMS

  • Fully customized skids installed into standard or modified ISO containers
  • Furnished with lighting, ventilation, leak detection, and heating as standard
  • Custom options such as doorways, lag-downs equipment arrangement, special ventilation, paint, or alarm indication are all available

Great for applications that include:

  • Chillers (primarily water cooled)
  • Cooling tower pumping systems
  • Chiller pumping systems
  • Heating systems

If floor space is limited, maybe it’s time to consider a containerized outdoor system!

PROCESS PUMP AND TANK SYSTEMS

  • Chiller pumping systems ranging from a simple tank with a single pump to a 1200-gallon hot/cold tank with multiple pumps.
  • Hot/cold tanks are fitted with two pumps, one for the process and one to recirculate to the fluid cooler. The standby pump option is piped to serve as a backup for the process or recirculating pump.
  • Capacities range from 25 to 200 nominal tons.
  • Tempest also designs and manufactures specialized equipment for non-standard applications.
