Open cooling towers are a proven and cost-effective method of cooling condenser water loops and industrial processes. In operation, the condenser water (or process water) flows directly over the heat transfer surface of the open cooling tower. As air is introduced into the tower, a fraction of this water is evaporated, cooling the remaining water. Open cooling towers provide evaporative cooling for many types of systems, and the specific application will largely determine which BAC cooling tower is best suited for a project.

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 (the fluid being cooled) to the ambient air through a heat exchange coil. The coil serves to isolate the process fluid from the outside air, keeping it clean and contaminate free in a closed loop. This creates two separate fluid circuits: (1) an external circuit, in which spray water circulates over the coil and mixes with the outside air, and (2) an internal circuit, in which the process fluid circulates inside the coil. During operation, heat is transferred from the internal circuit, through the coil to the spray water, and then to the atmosphere as a portion of the water evaporates.

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. The information contained within this section is geared towards the use of evaporative condensers as a general guide in the HVAC and light industrial markets. Evaporative condensers are used in these markets to provide lower condensing temperatures and compressor horsepower savings of up to 15 percent when compared with traditional systems.

FXV | Baltimore Aircoil Company

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. The low sound levels generated by FXV Closed Circuit Cooling Towers make them suitable for installation in most environments. Tubes are all prime surface steel tubing formed into a serpentine shape and welded into an assembly.
