Air-cooled condenser technology from EVAPCO
EVAPCO’s Advanced Technology ACC (Air Cooled Condenser) is specifically designed for the power generation industry. It combines a new modular construction scheme with the enhanced thermal performance of the patented nuCore heat exchanger. The induced-draft design — where the fan is located above the heat exchanger — provides several advantages, the company notes: lower overall unit height, reduced potential for recirculation, and less risk of fan vibration caused by high winds. The heat exchanger provides higher heat transfer than conventional designs, meaning that fewer cells are needed to meet a given load, the company explains. With less equipment installed, maintenance expense is also curtailed, EVAPCO adds.
