Baltimore Aircoil Company (BAC), the global leader in heat transfer technologies introduces the Nexus Modular Hybrid Cooler, the world’s first intelligent, plug-and-play, modular, hybrid fluid cooling system – engineered to simplify system design and optimize water and energy savings, while providing the lowest installation, operating, and maintenance costs. “This product highlights our leadership position in innovation, as we have created the world’s first truly smart hybrid cooling solution, with the ability to switch between evaporative and dry cooling in a modular compact footprint” said Don Fetzer, BAC President. “As our customers’ needs evolve and intensify, we push ourselves even harder to innovate with more intuitive, intelligent, efficient systems that yield even higher cost and resource savings. The Nexus Modular Hybrid Cooler promises to delight our customers who want to simplify the design and operation of their systems and also dramatically reduce their total cost of ownership,” added Dave Klee, BAC Director of Sales and Marketing for North America.
The Nexus Modular Hybrid Cooler simplifies both the design and installation of fluid cooling systems. The units are up to 8 feet shorter in height, 40% smaller in footprint and 35% lighter in weight that traditional fluid coolers. Modules are designed to be moved with a pallet jack and fit in a freight elevator – eliminating the need for special rigging equipment. Structural steel requirements can be reduced by up to 50%, and permanent ladders or elevated platforms can be eliminated. All fans, pumps, accessories and controls are factory installed, and wired, for true single-point wiring.
BAC’s patented hCore Heat Transfer Technology delivers exceptional heat transfer performance, durability, and longevity in a compact, corrosion-resistant package that has 65% less internal fluid volume and requires no passivation. The Nexus Cooler’s new, patent-pending DiamondClear Design uses 60% less spray water volume than traditional systems, reducing both water and chemical usage. The design provides continuous self-cleaning, significantly cutting water basin maintenance costs by reducing scale build-up and biological growth.
BAC’s innovative iPilot Control System with patent-pending, embedded intelligence minimizes operating cost by effectively balancing water and energy savings based on customer needs and preferences. The EC Fan System provides superior efficiency as well as high external static capability, with a direct-drive radial fan and a variable-speed electrically commutated (EC) motor. It completely eliminates maintenance associated with traditional fan drive systems and delivers superior reliability.
