Key benefits

  • Star in energy efficiency
  • Low maintenance and easy inspection
  • Unmatched hygiene control

Star in energy efficiency

  • Evaporative cooling PLUS unique combined heat transfer system for minimized system-wide energy consumption. This patented combined flow design from BAC ensures unrivalled efficient heat rejection at the lowest possible energy input.
  • Axial fan uses half the energy of similar centrifugal fan units.
  • BACross II fill factory-configured for unrivalled water/air contact and minimal air pressure drop. Guarantees optimal cooling tower efficiency.
  • High efficiency fan motors.

Low maintenance and easy inspection

  • Inspect and maintain safely towers with unrivalled comfort, while standing inside.
  • The FXVE has a spacious plenum (internal area) and easy inspection/maintenance access.
  • Access via large hinged door to internal walkway: no basin draining needed for unit interior inspection.
  • Inspection of water distribution system (spray branches and nozzles) possible outside the unit, during operation.
  • Inspect internal fill and coil easily via removable drift eliminator modules.
  • The patented BACross II fill sheets reduce fouling and are telescopically supported, allowing complete inspection of the fill core without dismantling.
  • Self-cleaning cold water basin and fill above sloped basin to flush out dirt and debris.
  • Fans are easily accessible from the in- and outside
  • Optional clean out port helps remove silt and sludge from the cooling tower basin.
  • Removable suction strainer anti-vortex hood.
  • Make-up, drain and overflow easily accessible for inspection and cleaning.

Unmatched hygiene control

  • Easy-clean and easy-inspect FXVE towers reduce hygiene risks from bacteria (e.g. Legionella) or biofilm inside.
  • The patented BACross II fill sheets reduce fouling and are telescopically supported, allowing complete inspection AND cleaning of the fill core without dismantling.
  • Combined inlet shields block sunlight to prevent biological growth in the tower, filter the air and stop water splashing outside. 
  • High efficient drift eliminators tested to Eurovent standards to prevent droplets escaping into the air.
  • Optional clean out port helps remove silt and sludge from the cooling tower basin. 
  • Optional sump sweeper piping prevents sediment collecting in the cold water basin.

Year-round reliable performance

  • Unique and patented heat transfer system: featuring combined flow via heat exchange coil and fill pack, for fine temperature applications and thermal challenges.
  • Multiple fan motor system covers independent fan motor and drive assembly per fan with a plenum partition for independent fan operation. For extra capacity control or stand-by fan in case of fan failure.
  • Various corrosion-resistant materials, including the Baltiplus 810TM coating for guaranteed long service life.
  • Single air inlet and discharge, fits in most enclosures.

Ultra silent design

  • FXVE units include low noise axial fans for minimal surrounding noise. To reduce noise even further, choose Whisper Quiet fans.
  • Factory designed, tested and rated sound attenuation is available on air inlet to cut operation noise even further.
  • Single-side air inlet, and a quieter tower rear for more noise-sensitive areas.
  • BACross II fill guides smoothly the water all the way into the basin without water splash noise.

Cheap to install

  • FXVE cooling towers are factory-built and shipped in sections for larger models to reduce the overall size and weight, allowing easy on-site section assembly with smaller crane.
