Construction Options

• Standard Construction:

All steel panels and structural elements are constructed of heavy-gauge Z700 hot-dip galvanized steel. Air inlet louvers are constructed of UV-resistant, fiberglass reinforced polyester (FRP).

• Optional Stainless Steel Cold Water Basin:

A Type 304 or 316 stainless steel cold water basin is available. The critical components in that cold water basin are provided in stainless steel.

• Optional Stainless Steel Construction:

Steel panels and structural elements are constructed of Type 304 or 316 stainless steel.

Coil Configurations

• Standard Serpentine Coil:

The standard cooling coil is constructed of continuous lengths of all prime surface steel, hot-dip galvanized after fabrication (HDGAF). The galvanizing is on the outside surface. The coil is designed for low pressure drop with sloping tubes for free drainage of fluid. Each coil is pneumatically tested at 2350 kPa.

• Optional Cleanable Header Coil:

The cleanable header tube bundle provides removable cover plates on the inlet and outlet header boxes to permit access to each serpentine tube circuit for solvent or air-pressure cleaning. Tubes are all prime surface steel tubing formed into a serpentine shape and welded into an assembly. Coil material options include carbon steel coils (hot-dip galvanized outside surface) or stainless steel coils. Each coil is pneumatically tested at 860 kPa.

• Optional Stainless Steel Coil:

Coils are available in Type 304 or 316 stainless steel for specialized applications. The coil is designed for low pressure drop with sloping tubes for free drainage of fluid. Each coil is pneumatically tested at 2350 kPa.

• Optional Straight-Through Cleanable Coil:

A header box with a removable cover plate at each end of the coil allows access to every tube end for mechanical cleaning or plugging. It is available in carbon steel (hot-dip galvanized inside and out) or stainless steel. Each coil is pneumatically tested at 860 kPa.

Independent Fan Operation

All FXV-models are standard equipped with the multiple fan motor system. This system consists of an independent fan motor and drive assembly per fan with a plenum partition to allow independent operation of each fan. This standard feature provides 2 steps of capacity control on dual fan units and 3 steps of capacity control on triple fan units, as illustrated below.

Note: When fan cycling is going to be used for capacity control, the unit must be ordered with partitioning panels.

Low Sound Operation

The low sound levels generated by FXV Closed Circuit Cooling Towers make them suitable for installation in most environments. For very sound sensitive installations, a low sound fan option is available to reduce the sound levels generated from the tower with minimal impact on thermal performance. For extremely sound sensitive installations, factory designed, tested and rated sound attenuation is available for both the air intake and discharge.

Combined Inlet Shields

Combined Inlet shields prevent biological growth from sunlight, act as a filter for air borne impurities and debris and eliminate water splash out.

Products | Baltimore Aircoil Company

Closed circuit cooling towers operate in a manner similar to open cooling towers, except that the heat load to be rejected is transferred from the process fluid to the ambient air through a heat exchange coil. Evaporative condensers provide heat rejection for many types of systems, and the specific application will largely determine which BAC Evaporative Condenser is best suited for a project.

Open Circuit Cooling Towers | Baltimore Aircoil Company

The axial fans of induced draft equipment are mounted in the top deck of the unit, minimizing the impact of fan noise on nearby neighbors and providing maximum protection from fan icing with units operating in sub-freezing conditions.

VXT | Baltimore Aircoil Company

Materials of Construction - Various materials are available to meet the corrosion resistance, unit operating life, and budgetary requirements of any project. Indoor Installations: Centrifugal fans can overcome the static pressure imposed by external ductwork, allowing the VXT to be installed indoors. Support - All models mount directly on two parallel I-beams and ship complete with motors and drives factory-installed and aligned.

FXT | Baltimore Aircoil Company

Evaporative Cooling Equipment - Minimizes the energy consumption of the entire system because it provides lower condensing water temperatures. Easy lubrication – Fittings for extended lubrication lines are provided as standard on the exterior of the unit for bearing lubrication. High efficiency BACross® Fill, which provides maximum air/water contact time at low air pressure drops.

Closed Circuit Cooling Towers | Baltimore Aircoil Company

This creates two separate fluid circuits: an external circuit, in which spray water circulates over the coil and mixes with the outside air, and an internal circuit, in which the process fluid circulates inside the coil. Closed circuit cooling towers operate in a manner similar to open cooling towers, except that the heat load to be rejected is transferred from the process fluid to the ambient air through a heat exchange coil.

Low Profile Models– Motors and drives of low profile units are adjacent to the casing section to yield models suitable for use in height sensitive installations. Attenuation - For extremely sound sensitive applications, factory designed tested/rated sound attenuation is available for both the air intake and discharge.
