(13 June 2014) For the conditions with the most stringent requirements, Luvata introduces the new High-Grade Process Cooler (HGPC). The HGPC is a high-end quality product that offers flexibility in material choices and endless ways for customisation to meet the requirements of the world’s most complicated installations, such as cooling power plants, emergency and standby generator sets for offshore platforms and reactor cooling plants.
When quality and reliability matter most, the HGPC is the answer. Developed specifically for projects where site ambient conditions are harshest and material choice matters, every HGPC is customised to meet the customers’ exact specifications. The HGPC can be equipped with one, or up to 56 fans, depending on the cooler size and other variables such as power supply voltage, frequency variations, sound level, power consumptions and speed regulation.
“No two installations are ever the same,” indicates Patric Jonsson, Industrial Global Product Manager with Luvata’s Heat Transfer Solutions division. “Delivering high-quality products upon which our customers depend is what we do best - even in the harshest conditions.”
Luvata’s computer software COILS is used to help select and size the correct cooler for the corresponding installation. A new feature of the COILS software is a slider. By moving the slider, the data will change in accordance with the changed fan speed. Based on various factors such as cooling capacity, cooler size, number of fans, tube row and environmental conditions, the software is used to further improve the cooler design.
Based on the required performance, application and environment, available tube and pipe materials include stainless steel, aluminium, copper nickel, titanium and copper. The exact combination of materials, along with a long list of available options and accessories, are selected using Luvata’s metallurgical expertise and heat transfer knowledge to deliver the complete optimal solution for the customers’ exacting requirements.
