EIC Overcomes Theme Park Equipment Cooling Challenges in Subtropics

In 2013 EIC was approached to work on a project with the world’s largest amusement park company. This new venture was to be the company’s 6th park worldwide and it’s first in mainland China. This new park experience is in Pudong New Area, Shanghai and is home to many new attractions.

Because of previous experience with this company as well as other major theme parks, EIC is well versed in handling the challenges that can occur in an amusement park environment. Equipment-cooling challenges in Theme Park settings have included:

  • Lighting controls for both indoor shows and outdoor parade routes
  • VFD’s and motor drives
  • Ride controls
  • Security, AV and Networking equipment

Located in a humid subtropical four-season climate with an active monsoon season, this new park needed to ensure their equipment would function year-round without interruption. Several different projects within the park required a full evaluation to determine their specific cooling needs. EIC’s engineers recommended three different solutions to meet the required thermal specs centering on:

ThermoTEC™ 151 Series - 2500 BTU Thermoelectric Air Conditioner - Front View, Right Side

Prior to the park’s opening in June of 2016, each air conditioner was mounted to a NEMA enclosure at the installation site. The ThermoTEC AC NEMA 4X solid-state design ensures the coolers will operate seamlessly regardless of the environmental conditions. The maintenance-free design allows for dependable operation eliminating costly down time or servicing. When a brand known for the highest level of quality in entertainment and amusement needs to keep their equipment protected and operating smoothly, they look to EIC.
