  • Closed Circuit Coolers: Design with winter in mind

    When outside temperatures fall below freezing, water inevitably forms into ice. Open cooling towers can be susceptible to freezing due to their inherent nature of operation. As a result, ice formation becomes a subject of management, not elimination. Fortunately, there are alternative solutions. Closed circuit coolers are used for a multitude of niche applications, but are ideal for evaporative ...

  • Low recirculation rate evaporators

    Abstract Fin coil evaporators with enhanced internal tube surfaces allow for optimum performance with a minimal overfeed rate. Reducing the overfeed rate requiresless pumping power and smaller line sizes to the evaporator. Additionally, less compressor power is required for the same refrigeration capacity because the wet suction line pressure drop is reduced. Lower compressor power results ...
