Baltimore Aircoil Company introduces HXV Hybrid Cooler
Baltimore, Maryland, 9 June, 2019: Baltimore Aircoil Company (BAC) has introduced the HXV Hybrid Cooler, which the company described in a Press communiqué as offering the best of both evaporative and dry cooling, thus providing a water-saving and energy-efficient solution. The HXV, the communiqué said, is ideal for maintaining peak performance for a variety of applications, where water is scarce, water costs are high, uptime is critical or plume is a concern. It is perfect for the most demanding of projects, including data centers, industrial, manufacturing and HVAC, the communiqué said.
The HXV delivers energy-efficient cooling while maximizing water savings, the communiqué said, adding that owing to the power of evaporative cooling, the HXV is up to 60% more energy efficient than air-cooled systems. BAC’s innovative combined-flow technology, which combines parallel air and water paths, ensures peak system energy efficiency, the communiqué said. The HXV also offers up to 70% water savings compared to traditional fluid coolers with the ability to run with reduced water during the majority of the year, the communiqué added. Even on a design day, 25% water savings can be achieved, the communiqué further added.
The HXV also offers 25% maintenance savings compared to traditional fluid coolers, the communiqué said. Maintenance is easy with immediate access to the cold water basin, prime surface coil, and the fan-drive system, the communiqué added. Operators can even inspect the spray distribution system while the unit is in operation, the communiqué said. Maintenance costs are further reduced by virtue of 70% chemical savings, the communiqué added.
According to the communiqué, when reliable year-round operation is critical, the HXV offers trouble-free winter operation. Additional benefits of the HXV include uninterrupted operation with multiple fans and optional redundant pumps, the communiqué said. Longevity and corrosion resistance are further increased with superior material options, including the EVERTOUGH Construction and TriArmor Corrosion Protection System, the communiqué added. For projects requiring plume abatement, the communiqué further added, the HXV has no plume when operating dry, and the dry coil provides natural plume abatement when running wet.
