Temperature Control

Big Advantages with Compact & Powerful MiniPac Plate Heat Exchanger

IAS is proud to introduce the MiniPac, an engineered heat transfer system that can be customized for heating and chilling applications up to 400,000 BTUH in a 17″ x 12″ footprint! Plate heat exchangers have the advantage of adjustability for lower pressure drop and higher transfer area unlike fixed tube-in-shell heat exchangers. Now the advantages of plate heat exchangers can be utilized in smaller aquatic systems. MiniPac includes an EDPM gasketed Titanium or Stainless Steel Plate Heat Exchanger (PHE), digital temp controller, flow control device with balancing valve, strainer, and flow meter all pre-plumbed onto a compact skid package making these a great space saver in any application. Floor or wall mounting make it versatile and a perfect fit onto INTEGRATED™ IFS systems.

 
 

  • Large flow-rate range and minimal pressure loss means these units can be added inline or as a side loop, without a complete system redesign.
  • Expandable systems, and wide BTU/h output means more “bang for your buck”, and adaptability as facility/ habitat needs increase.
  • MiniPac can be ordered with either a pump or electrical flow control valve, temp control options including: 0-10v DC output for VFD speed control, or electronic valve positioning.
  • The minipac is exclusively configured for the Aquatic System Designer and Life Support System Engineer’s temperature control requirements and space challenges.
  • Unsurpassed versatility.

California Department of Fish & Wildlife Selects IAS for Industrial Chilling & UV Disinfection System to Save Salmon

The California drought is now threatening the fall chinook salmon run and trout population could be affected by a decrease in water levels.  Emergency action has been taken by the California State Department to save the spawning season with the installation of a large industrial chilling and UV disinfection system at the American River Trout Hatchery.

Integrated Aqua Systems, Inc. was selected as the Prime Supplier in partnership with Aquacare Environment, Inc. to provide the 260 ton chilling system, 15 KW UV sterilization system and mechanical drum filtration system capable of handling 1,800 gpm.  The project is currently underway at the American River Trout Hatchery near Sacramento, CA.
