  • Multiple Fan Construction
  • Full Internal Access

Key Benefits

  • Reduced Energy Consumption
  • Easy Access for Maintenance
  • Low Noise Design

Characteristics

Combined Flow, Axial Fan, Induced Draft

Key Features

Combined Flow Technology

BAC’s range of combined flow units, utilise the best in both worlds. By cooling through direct evaporation onto the coil surface as well as through a fill material, before being recirculated back to the sprays.

Multiple Fan Construction

Multiple fans provide redundancy as well as energy efficiency when working on VSD based controls.

Full Internal Access

Open internal area provided for ease of access to all components within the unit for maintenance.

Key Benefits

Reduced Energy Consumption

High efficiency electrical equipment options as standard provide for a high level of energy efficiency for kW of heat rejected compared to other products.

Easy Access for Maintenance

Special ergonomic considerations taken into account during the units design makes for ease of access for maintenance. This in turn allows for reduced costs during servicing from both mechanic’s time and unit “down time”.

Low Noise Design

Consideration taken for fan type, location and air flow requirements help to improve the noise output of these products.

Principle of Operation

 

FXV-D Principle of Operation

 

 

The FXV-D combines the function of a cooling tower and a heat exchanger into one unit. The warm process fluid (1) circulates on both sides of the tower through a heat exchanger coil (2), which is wetted by a spray system (3). In parallel with the water spray flow, anaxial fan (4) draws air (5) over the coil. The evaporation process cools the fluid (6) inside the coils. Because the coldest spray water and air are in the top of the tower, the process fluid travels from the bottom to the top of the coils. The spray water falls onto a fill pack (7) where it is cooled before falling into the water basin (8). Spray pumps (9) recirculate the cooled water to the top of the tower. The warm saturated air (10) leaves the tower through the drift eliminators (11) which remove water droplets from the air.
