Lytron's Kodiak® Recirculating Chiller is a Finalist
January, 2000 - Lytron Incorporated's Kodiak® Recirculating Chiller is a finalist in the accessory category of Laser Focus World's 2000 Commercial Technology Achievement Award. Lytron's Kodiak recirculating chillers were designed to cover a wide range of applications including medical and industrial lasers, analytical instrumentation, medical imaging, machine tools, high speed printing, and industrial applications.
Charles Carswell, Lytron's President, said, "We are very pleased to have achieved a finalist position in Laser Focus World's Commercial Technology Achievement Award. We surveyed the market to exactly understand the industry chiller requirements and then over the next two years Lytron set about the difficult task of designing it. This award and the market's acceptance indicates our engineering teams achieved the goal."
According to Carole Root, Assistant Editor at Laser Focus World, "These awards recognize significant and long-lasting achievements in commercial optoelectronic technology. Eligible products must have become commercially available between October 1, 1998 and September 1999 and continue to be of demonstrated commercial value."
Representing more than a decade of design and manufacturing experience, Kodiak chillers offer many standard features in a quiet, small package. The chiller was designed to provide an updated, quality image for OEM applications. The user interface improvements include a new, completely digital, easy-to-program controller with a pressure indicating bar readout. All Kodiak models contain a robust ozone-friendly refrigeration system with hot gas bypass to extend compressor life, allowing for a two-year warranty, twice the industry standard.
Four different cooling capacities, 600, 1100, 2200, 4500 Watts, are available with a variety of electrical, pump and controller options to customize the chiller. The versatility of the Kodiak line allows Lytron to modify the unit to virtually any application.
