Lakewood, N.J. – June 28, 2011 – Keil® Refrigeration Hardware, a brand of Component Hardware Group, Inc., has released a new product to add to its line up of energy-saving solutions. The T12 Series Condensate Evaporators are now available with a weight-sensing on/off pressure switch that only activates when the pan is full of water, resulting in lower energy costs.

“Many evaporators in use today use old-style Calrod heating elements, which are always operating at full power and are very inefficient,” said Ed Whartnaby, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Component Hardware. “This cost-effective innovation assures customers that they are only consuming energy when absolutely necessary.”

In addition to the on-off pressure switch, Keil condensate pans utilize state-of-the-art PTC resistor heating pad technology, which utilizes a resistor wire to regulate the wattage consumed based on the temperature of the pan, further conserving energy by not constantly operating at peak wattage.

The T12 Series Condensate Evaporators come standard with a 50 fluid-ounce (1500 milliliters) cast aluminum reservoir and an 18-inch (457 millimeter) removable cord set with bare leads. Both the 160 Watt Standard Duty (4-5 fl. oz./hour evaporation rate) and 300 Watt Heavy-Duty (7-8 fl. oz./hour evaporation rate) models are available for 117/120 Volt and 220/240 Volt applications. These units are NSF listed and UL recognized.
