Software for the selection of heat-exchangers of air units
- Release 230718

Our software easily selects the most suitable air-cooled units for your needs, creating the technical data sheet (with technical data and also with prices of unit and accessories) that will be processed to the sales department.

A complete software

TK Archimede enables you to select the complete range of ThermoKey’s round tube products and, starting from 2016, also the microchannel condensers.

It is possible to use the software both in check and selection mode.

In selection mode, before inserting data it is possible to select the type of unit you are interested in: drycoolers, condensers, DX unit coolers, Pump unit coolers or Brine unit coolers.

Inside each category the products are further more divided into series and sub-series , following the application field.

In check mode, you can set filters in capacity, sound level, fan type , etc…. and look for the units which best fit your needs..

If you already know the unit you are interested in, in check mode it is possible to modify the thermodynamic parameters both on the air side and the fluid side, and then to add the accessories.

TK Archimede is continuously updated with more and more new features, unit types, accessories and library (fans, refrigerants, fluids and row materials).

Selection of microchannel condensers

Software for the selection and the calculation of microchannel condensers manufactured with the innovative TKMicro technology.
The installation is really easy and the software is continuously updated.
The only thing you have to do is insert the filters required, add the accessories and send us the data sheet of the unit you are most interested in.

Thermodynamic selection and dimensioning

TK Cardano is a thermodynamic selection and dimensioning software of remote condensers realized with microchannel cores. The software enables you to visualize a list of units that respect the requisites of the user. These requisites can be: fan type, sound level to a given distance and heat-capacity of the unit.
The selection can be done giving different thermodynamic conditions both on the refrigerant and on the inlet air of the core.

Once you have the list of the units that respect the requisites given, it is possible to visualize them in order of price, capacity or of other parametres desired. This way it is possible to choose the unit that best responds to your needs.

Once you have defined the unit you want it is possible to create a detailed data sheet with drawings, thermodynamic, electronic, acoustic data and foot-print.

TK Cardano is completely developed internally and it is the result of Thermokey’s experience in the thermodynamic calculation of microchannel condensers.
