BAC introduces Vertex Evaporative Condenser
BALTIMORE, Maryland, 21 November 2019: Baltimore Aircoil Company (BAC) has introduced the Vertex Evaporative Condenser, which the company described as “peak reliability meets easy maintenance”. The condenser offers maximum uptime with easy and safe accessibility, the company said through a Press release. It also has the lowest total cost of ownership with the lowest installation, maintenance, and operating costs, the company said.
“At BAC, we begin our innovation process by seeking to understand what our customers really need and want from us,” said Dave Klee, BAC Director of Sales and Marketing for North America. “In the case of the Vertex Evaporative Condenser, it was clear that there were many things they liked about our existing VCA product, but that there were opportunities to make it even better. So, the Vertex Condenser combines what customers like most about the VCA with compelling new innovations for the future. And of course, the Vertex Condenser uses evaporative cooling, so it’s an inherently sustainable solution for industrial refrigeration and other industrial process applications.”
Added Phil Hollander, Business Manager of Refrigeration for North America: “Our customers asked for easy maintenance and access, and the Vertex Condenser delivers. It has the largest access door, which easily accommodates a 6.5-foot-tall person with a sturdy step and safety handle. Technicians’ feet also stay dry while safely inspecting the low-volume basin from the internal walkway. Inspection of all nozzles is also fast and easy with the optional pre-assembled platforms at an ergonomic working height. The Vertex Condenser alleviates confined space limitations, and customers have already reacted very positively to the overall design.”
According to the release, the Vertex Evaporative Condenser reduces installation costs by 30%, in part by aligning the upper section to the lower section in less than 15 minutes per cell, due to the industrial-grade rigidity of the unit. Water volume is reduced by up to 30%, saving on water and chemical costs, the company said through the release. This helps reduce the operating weight by an average of 16%, the company added. The Vertex Condenser, the company further added, uses a direct-drive EC Fan System, which maximizes reliability and uptime, and reduces operating costs, while requiring no regular maintenance.
