Manufacturing facilities generate heat, which can be emitted to the ambient air in many different ways with the help of refrigeration equipment or free cooling. If the process needs to be cooled throughout the year, a free-cooling system with a dry cooler is recommended in most cases.
In our many years of experience we have successfully solved many problems. We can be particularly helpful in three areas:
- Cost philosophy
The project's owner should know from the start which cost philosophy he wants to pursue. Does he want to minimize his investment costs or his operating costs? As part of this decision, he should also determine the planned life cycle of the system and any future expansion plans.
- Architecture and surroundings
Other important criteria for selecting the right condensers and dry coolers are: the available space, visual screening, type of construction, noise requirements, and the aggressiveness of the ambient air, which can cause problems near the ocean or in industrial areas.
Thermodynamics are affected by the ambient temperature and the fluid being used, as well as the installation's load profile, fluid temperatures, pressure drop, and location. For example, it makes a huge difference whether the system is installed in Chicago, Anchorage, or on the top of the Grand Canyon.
