eco-ATC-A Evaporative Condenser

The eco-ATC-A line of evaporative condensers represents Evapco’s commitment to product development. The line is comprised of models ranging in size from 125 to 2,900 nominal ammonia tons (537 kW to 12,470 kW). The induced draft counterflow condensers are designed especially for easy maintenance and long, trouble-free operation.

Design Features

The eco-ATC line of evaporative condensers represents EVAPCO’s newest advancement in thermal heat transfer research and development. Utilizing the Ellipti–fin™ heat transfer coil, the eco-ATC offers improved heat transfer during wet operation and offers significant water savings due to extended periods of dry operation. The eco-ATC is another chapter in EVAPCO’s on-going commitment to quality, environmentally friendly products.

Evaporative Mode


The refrigerant gas is discharged from the
compressor into the inlet connection of the eco-ATC condenser. Water from the condenser’s sump is circulated over the condenser coil, while ambient air is simultaneously drawn into the unit. As the
ambient air moves up through the coil section, a portion of the spray water is evaporated into the air stream. The evaporative process cools the spray water, which in turn cools the tubes containing the refrigerant gas. The cool tube walls cause the
refrigerant gas to give up heat and condense into a liquid. The condensed liquid flows out of the coil to the high pressure liquid receiver for return to the system. The hot, saturated air is drawn through the drift eliminators, where any entrained water droplets are removed. The condenser’s fan then discharges
this air stream out of the top of the unit at a high velocity, where it can dissipate  harmlessly into the atmosphere. The water which was not evaporated falls into the sump and is recirculated by the spray pump to the water distribution system above the condensing coil section.

 

Dry Mode


The refrigerant gas is discharged from the
compressor into the inlet connection of the eco-ATC condenser. Ambient air is drawn into the unit and moves over the heat transfer coil. The air is warmed while the tubes containing the refrigerant gas are cooled. The cool tube walls cause the refrigerant gas to give up heat and condense into a liquid. The condensed liquid flows out of the coil to the high pressure liquid receiver for return to the system. The hot discharge air is drawn through the drift eliminators and then the fan then discharges the air stream out of the top of the unit where it can dissipate harmlessly into the atmosphere.

Efficient Drift Eliminators

An extremely efficient drift eliminator system is standard on the eco-ATC evaporative condenser. The system removes entrained water droplets from the air stream to limit the drift rate to less than 0.001% of the recirculating water rate. With a low drift rate, the eco-ATC Evaporative Condenser saves valuable water and water treatment chemicals. The eco-ATC Evaporative Condenser can be located in areas where minimum water carryover is critical, such as parking lots.

The drift eliminators are constructed of an inert polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic material which effectively eliminates corrosion of these vital components. They are assembled in sections to facilitate easy removal for inspection of the water distribution system.

Superior Air Inlet Louver and Screen Design

The air inlet louver screens on the eco-ATC are constructed of corrosion-free PVC. They are a two pass design that minimizes splashout and reduces the potential for algae formation inside the cooler.

In single pass louver systems used by other manufacturers, circulating water droplets tend to splashout, especially when the fans are shut off. With the two pass louver system, the water droplets are captured on the inward sloping pass, minimizing splashout problems.

This unique louver design completely encloses the basin area. Direct sunlight is blocked from the water inside the cooler, thereby reducing the potential of algae formation. Water treatment and maintenance costs are substantially reduced.

While effectively containing the recirculating water and blocking sunlight, the louver design has a low pressure drop. The low pressure drop results in lower fan energy consumption, which reduces the operating costs of the cooler.

Maintenance Free ZMII® Water Distribution System

 

EVAPCO’S Zero Maintenance ZMII® Spray Nozzle remains clog-free while providing even and constant water distribution for reliable, scale-free evaporative cooling under all operating conditions.

The heavy duty nylon ZMII® Spray Nozzles have a 1-1/4” diameter opening and a 1-1/4” splash plate clearance enabling EVAPCO to use 75% fewer nozzles. Furthermore, the fixed position ZMII® nozzles are mounted in corrosion-free PVC water distribution pipes that have threaded end caps. Together, these elements combine to provide unequaled coil coverage and scale prevention, and make the industry’s best performing non-corrosive, maintenance-free water distribution system.


The water distribution is designed to provide a minimum 6 GPM over each square foot (4 liters per second over each square meter) of unit plan area to ensure proper flooding of the coil. 

 Ellipti-fin Coil Design

 The new eco-ATC Evaporative Condenser utilizes Evapco's patent-pending Ellipti-fin coil design which assures even greater
operating efficiency. The elliptical tube design allows for closer
tube spacing, resulting in greater surface area per plan area
than round-tube coil designs. In addition, the revolutionary
Ellipti-fin design utilizes elliptical spiral fin coil technology and
has lower resistance to airflow than typical finned coil designs.
This permits greater water loading, making the new Ellipti-fin
coil the most efficient coil design available on the market.
The coils are manufactured from high quality steel tubing following the most stringent quality control procedures. Each circuit is inspected to ensure the material quality and then tested before being assembled into a coil. Finally, the assembled coil is pneumatically tested at 400 psig under water to ensure it is leak free.


To protect the coil against corrosion, it is placed in a heavy steel
frame and then the entire assembly is dipped in molten zinc
(hot-dip galvanized) at a temperature of approximately 800°F.

Fast, On-Time Shipments

The eco-ATC is completely factory assembled and manufactured by a dedicated professional workforce, expert in building closed circuit coolers. Factory trained mechanics and EVAPCO's strict quality control and inspection procedures guarantee the quality of every unit shipped.

Low Fan Motor Hp


The eco-ATC features the new EVAPCO Ellipti–fin™ coil,
which utilizes elliptical spiral fin coil technology. This
technology allows for up to 15% increase in thermal
performance while offering model selections with reduced fan
motor horsepower. This will results in significant energy
savings throughout the year.
 

Reduced Plan Area


Due to the increased thermal performance, new eco-ATC also
minimizes the footprint required for a given capacity thereby
reducing the space required for an evaporative condenser. A
smaller footprint means less steel and lower installation costs.


Significant Water Savings


The Ellipti-fin coil technology enables the eco-ATC to be
operated in a 100% Dry Mode at a significantly higher
switchover temperature is significantly higher than that of a
typical bare tube coil. This leads to a significant increase in dry
operating hours, thus increasing your water savings compared
to bare tube coils. This combination of features allows the eco-
ATC to be operated with both energy and water efficiency in
mind, making it the ideal choice for many installations. 

Easy Field Assembly 

The eco-ATC features a unique field seam design which ensures easier assembly and fewer field seam leaks. The field seam incorporates self-guiding channels to guide the coil casing section into position and set in place on the bottom basin section of the condenser. In addition, the design eliminates up to 66% of the fasteners typically used to join the condenser sections in the field significantly reducing the contractor labor costs for installation.

Maintenance Features

Designed for easy maintenance, the eco-ATC Closed Circuit Cooler leads the industry in service friendly features. The three most critical areas for closed circuit cooler maintenance are the basin, drive system, and coil. The eco-ATC basin section is designed to allow quick and easy access from outside the cooler. Just like the basin, all service to the drive system can be safely performed from the side of the cooler, and EVAPCO's Power-Band drive system is the easiest belt drive system to maintain in the industry!
