Dry Cooling 101

What is dry cooling?

Dry cooling removes heat from a system using sensible heat rejection. The lack of water and any need for water treatment greatly reduces the required maintenance for this type of cooling equipment.

Application in coolers and condensers

Air flow and surface area are key to maximizing the effect of dry cooling. EVAPCO facilitates this transfer of energy by running process fluid through a series of highly conductive aluminum fins. By constantly drawing large quantities of air through the fins, heat is quickly removed from the system and discharges to the atmosphere.

EVAPCO offers several models designed specifically to run in 100% dry cooling mode as either closed circuit coolers, or condensers; we are proud to offer these units as part of our global initiative to provide sustainable products and services to the cooling industry.

Flat Configuration

EVAPCO's flat configuration air cooled industrial coolers and condensers are effective low profile solutions, and can be elevated to maximize bottom airflow clearance, and require minimal side clearance to maintain air circulation. 

V-Configuration

The V-configuration air cooled industrial coolers and condensers provide maximum surface area per footprint for greater heat rejection. At under six feet tall, these units maintain a low profile while providing effective dry cooling capabilities.

EVAPCO’s numerous patents and trend-setting technologies demonstrate our tireless pursuit of innovation; we are constantly investing in research and development to improve our products and the experience each of our customers has with our cooling solutions. Choosing EVAPCO is choosing progress.
