Fluid Coolers Fluid Cooler Offers Greater Efficiency with Superior Heat Transfer
SPX Cooling Technologies introduces its new Marley MH Element Fluid Cooler, an induced-draft, crossflow closed-circuit cooling tower suitable for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), industrial and process cooling applications.
Because of its hybrid operation and high-efficiency components, the Marley MH Element Fluid Cooler delivers more thermal capacity with a smaller footprint and lower fan power, states the company.
The Cooler is the most efficient in its class. Compared to fluid coolers using traditional HDG coils, the new Cooler provides 15 per cent more thermal capacity, is 20 per cent lighter in weight per footprint, requires 35 per cent less fluid volume and uses 35 per cent less fan power, mentions the firm. Its high-performance copper coils offer seven times more thermal conductivity and can be drained, extending service life with its superior corrosion resistance. Additionally, copper coils have bacteriostatic properties and are recyclable with high salvage value.
The Cooler combines cooling tower and heat exchanger functions into one system. The process fluid is contained in a clean, closed loop, protecting it from outside contamination. The fluid cooler’s hybrid design uses a combination of fill media and prime surface coils, offering significantly improved performance compared to conventional closed-circuit coolers.
With higher capacity per footprint than conventional closed-circuit designs, the Cooler fits applications with restricted space. Heavy-duty construction, backed by SPX Cooling Technologies’ five-year mechanical warranty, helps keep processes running smoothly year after year, adds the firm.
Thermal capacities of standard models are independently certified by the Cooling Technology Institute (CTI) for performance with water, ethylene glycol and propylene glycol solutions. The Cooler is equipped with low-sound fans as standard. Other fan and attenuation options are also available to meet even more stringent sound requirements, concludes the company.
