Key benefits

  • Long and reliable service life
  • Low energy consumption
  • Easy maintenance

Long and reliable service life

  • Corrosion resistant and superior structure strength: pultruded composite construction combined with BAC's patented "Bonded Panel to Post Connection" guarantuee a long service life.
  • Switch off the spray system during periods of reduced load and operate dry.

Low energy consumption

  • Evaporative cooling for system-wide energy saving at lower operating temperatures.
  • Axial fan uses half the energy of similar centrifugal fan units.
  • Factory tested high efficiency coil.
  • High efficiency/VFD duty fan motors

Easy maintenance

  • Full cold water basin access when removing the combined inlet shields.
  • Easy no-tool removal of side panel gives access to all internal cooling tower components.
  • Sloped basin to flush out dirt and debris.
  • Easy removable spray branch arms, eliminators and combined inlet shields.
  • Easy access to motor and drives from outside.
  • Extended bearing lube lines fitted for ease of maintenance.
  • Upgrade the unit with external service platform, ladder, safety cage and gate for quick and safe access to all unit components.

Operational safety

  • Closed loop or circuit tower, no airborne contaminants enter and foul the system
  • Easy-to-clean and easy-to-inspect RCF towers reduce hygiene risks from bacteria (e.g. Legionella) or biofilm inside
  • Dry operation possible in winter time.
  • Combined inlet shields block sunlight to prevent biological growth in the tower, to filter the air and to stop water splashing outside.

Low installation cost

  • Reduce rigging time with the coil section self aligning with the basin section.
  • Motors and drives are factory aligned.
  • All models mount directly on three parallel I-beams.
  • Use smaller, less costly cranes by shipping in multiple sections to minimize the size and weight of the heaviest lift.
  • Container shipment often possible!
