BAC Balticare NEXUS cooling tower

Power range up to 792 kW

Main Benefits

  • Maximum uptime
  • Lowest operating costs
  • Lowest environmental impact

Maximum uptime

  • Units are CTI-Eurovent certified , which guarantees thermal performance and eliminates the cost of on-site thermal performance testing.
  • Independent individual modules guaranteeing redundancy .
  • Corrosion resistant materials are supplied as standard for maximum equipment life: hCore TM stainless steel heat exchange technology combined with  Baltibond hybrid plastic coating on all structural components, with corrosion resistance equivalent to SST 304L.
  • The patent-pending DiamondClear TM design allows the cold water basin to be inspected while the unit is in operation .
  • EC fan systems are located inside the device, in the dry air, which prevents condensation and eliminates corrosion problems and premature failures.
  • Direct drive fans eliminate potential mechanical failures .

Lowest operating costs

  • Innovative iPilot TM control system with patented intelligence operates in multiple modes to optimize both water and energy savings based on your needs and preferences.
  • Patented hCore TM heat exchange technology delivers high thermal efficiency (wet and dry) in a compact footprint, maximizing both water and energy savings.
  • Patent-pending DiamondClear TM design optimizes air distribution across the heat exchanger Provides continuous self-cleaning Reduces spray water volume by up to 60% Reduces water treatment and spray water energy costs.
  • EC fan system has excellent efficiency that exceeds the requirements of efficiency class IE4. The integrated electronics of the EC motors allow variable speed control for maximum system efficiency with significantly reduced energy consumption.
  • Energy-efficient centrifugal fans provide savings of up to 40% over traditional centrifugal fans and offer high external static power.

Lowest environmental impact

  • Patent-pending DiamondClear TM design provides continuous self-cleaning operation . When stationary, the inclined surfaces are completely emptied, avoiding stagnant water in the unit and the risk of contamination from sediment.
  • External sump with 80% less water volume reduces chemical use and eliminates the need to access the interior for cleaning .
  • Possibility to use water treatment systems that allow discharge from the hybrid cooler into the surface water.
  • Fully encased collection basin eliminates any ingress of sunlight , preventing biological growth.
  • Baltibond Hybrid plastic coating for a smooth surface that reduces biofilm development .
  • Ensure operational safety with optional factory-installed chemical-free UV biocide system .

Lowest installation costs

  • Can be installed as a single piece or as individual modules that fit into a freight elevator .
  • Up to 35% lighter weight, 40% smaller footprint and 1.5m less height.
  • Plug & Play design with innovative iPilot TM control system and integrated electronics of the EC motors eliminate the need for external VFDs, electronic filters and shielded cabling.
  • Modular header for single point process fluid connections included as standard.
  • No passivation is required due to the fully corrosion resistant structure and hCore TM heat exchange technology .
  • Pressure capability of fans allows indoor installation with duct system.

Low maintenance

  • Patent-pending DiamondClear TM design provides continuous self-cleaning operation over fully inclined surfaces, constant falling spray action and high water velocities, and 80% lower water volume (with no stagnant water in the unit) which minimizes maintenance needs by reducing scale and biological growth .
  • The external chilled water basin with spray pump, direct drive fan in the dry system, water distribution system and mist eliminators are all easily accessed from the outside without the need for permanent ladders or lifting platforms.
  • The swing-out EC fan system allows for easy inspection and requires no maintenance at all .
  • Inspection and maintenance of critical parts are possible during operation.
  • Baltibond Hybrid plastic coating and stainless steel for a smooth finish that makes interior cleaning easier .
