HydroThrift - Closed-Loop Evaporative-Type (CE) Cooling System
From Cooling Systems
A cost-efficient way to maintain consistent equipment cooling temperatures with varying heat loads and environmental conditions. All water-cooled heat-producing industrial processes and equipment will benefit from the installation of this thermostatically controlled heavy-duty (CE) system. That's because it removes heavy heat loads from machines and processes by supplying coolant economically within 10ºF of ambient wet bulb temperatures. Continuously, efficiently and with minimum maintenance.
Completely automatic operation, reliable control of temperature. The system is filled with a low-cost, water/glycol mixture which is continually circulated. Because it is a self-contained system, you won't need to add or change the glycol coolant which prevents freeze problems.
Compact, simple to install. HydroThrift evaporative type cooling systems are two-component systems utilizing a compact pump package and a remote, evaporative type heat exchanger. The pump and control unit is delivered to your site skid-mounted -- prepiped and prewired.
Noncontaminating system extends equipment service life. As a closed-loop system, the HydroThrift CE unit operates cleanly. And that saves production downtime and money. No contaminants, air-borne dirt or chemicals from water treatment as in an open or 'once-through' water systems. This will promote long service life for your production equipment because scaling and corrosion in water jackets, coils and heat exchangers are prevented.
Maximum economy of operation saves water, reduces cooling cost and maintains equipment efficiency. The HydroThrift system is designed to provide years of trouble-free service, even in tough environments. The water/glycol mixture is recirculated, permitting economical, efficient cooling. There is minimal need for make-up water to replace the evaporated water in the spray water system. The evaporative loss amounts to about 2 gpm for each 1 million BTU/hr, plus bleed. And you avoid water use regulations and sewer charges related to the discharge of water.
High efficiency operation. The elimination of chemical and dirt build-up on heat exchanger and water jacket surfaces promotes efficiency and minimizes the cost of operation. It saves the cost of heat exchanger repair and maintenance and the associated downtime. Another reason for efficient service is that the coolant temperature is controlled constantly within a limited range, minimizing the costly inconsistencies found in external 'once-through' water cooling.
Lowest recycled coolant temperature. The HydroThrift evaporative type cooling system can obtain lower coolant temperatures than can dry-type closed-loop cooling systems, since the coolant temperature depends on the ambient wet bulb temperatures.
Engineered systems boost cooling capacity even further. Typical HydroThrift CE type capacities range from 20 to more than 2000 gpm. To achieve even greater cooling capacities for your machine or process, we can engineer systems combining our dry-type and evaporative-type systems.
