Overland Park, Kan. – SPX Cooling Technologies Inc. has released details of its expanded MH Fluid Cooler line, designed to meet an even more diverse range of applications. The MH Fluid Cooler is now available with three coil materials, each delivering its own advantages.
The most recent innovation, the MH Element™ Fluid Cooler, is equipped with copper coils. Copper offers superior corrosion resistance and improved heat transfer. Compared with traditional hot-dip galvanized (HDG) coil fluid coolers, the copper coil requires 35 percent less fluid volume, and cooler operating weight is reduced by 20 percent. Copper is also sustainable, with a high recycle value at the end of its operational life.
Other MH Fluid Coolers are available with coils of either HDG steel or stainless steel. HDG steel offers good thermal performance in a closed and pressurized system. Models with stainless steel coils require more surface area and are often utilized in coastal regions and applications prone to corrosion.
One of the most efficient closed-circuit cooling towers in its class, the MH Fluid Cooler is a hybrid system that combines the functionality of a cooling tower and a heat exchanger. Utilizing a combination of evaporative fill media and prime surface coils, the MH Fluid Cooler offers significantly improved performance over conventional non-hybrid systems. Compared to forced-draft products with comparable footprint, its proprietary CoolBoost™ technology uses up to 75 percent less fan energy, requires up to 35% less process fluid, and reduces operating weight by 15 percent or more.
HVAC applications include water source heat pumps, water-cooled VRF (variable refrigerant flow), geothermal heat pumps, and chillers. Industrial process cooling uses include water-cooled air compressors, injection molding machines, induction furnaces, and other machine or jacket cooling.
Thermal capacities of all standard MH Fluid Coolers are independently certified by the Cooling Technology Institute (CTI) for performance with water, ethylene glycol solutions, and propylene glycol solutions. The MH Fluid Cooler is backed by SPX Cooling Technologies’ five-year mechanical warranty and energy efficiencies that exceed ASHRAE Standard 90.1 requirements.
