ATC-DC Evaporative Condenser

Dramatically reduced water consumption

Thanks to EVAPCO’s cutting edge finned coil technology, the ATC-DC is the ultimate solution for food process and large tonnage industrial process installations seeking the highest dry bulb switchover temperatures, reduced water usage, high peak-load output, and plume abatement. The ultimate in wet/dry performance, every ATC-DC model has been engineered to provide a minimum 50% of the design heat of rejection (MBH) at 60ºF ambient dry bulb temperature or higher, based on a 96.3ºF (35.7ºC) condensing temperature.

  • Potential for massive annual water savings
  • Every ATC-DC model is engineered to provide a minimum 50% of the design heat of rejection (MBH) at 60F ambient dry bulb temperature or higher, based on a 96.3ºF (35.7ºC) condensing temperature
  • Plume reduction in evaporative mode, plume elimination in dry mode
  • Ranging in capacity from 96 to 897 nominal tons
  • IBC Compliant – Independently certified by the International Building Code to withstand seismic and wind load forces in North America
Dry Mode
  • The unit maintains dry mode operation until the temperature set point can no longer be met
  • While in dry mode, no water is used, thus plume is eliminated
  • Dry mode operation can save thousands in water usage and sewage costs annually

The refrigerant gas is discharged from the compressor into the inlet of the ARID fin Pak® dry coil, which is positioned in the dry air stream above the unit’s drift eliminators and below the fan section; the axial fan draws into the unit, through the bottom inlet louvers. As the air passes over the coil, a portion of the load is dissipated to the atmosphere through the tube walls and fins through sensible heat transfer.

The refrigerant exits the ARID fin Pak coil, entering the Ellipti-fin coil® via the inter-connecting piping (by others); the remaining load dissipates through the tube and extended surface fins of the Ellipti-fin coil through sensible heat transfer. The condensed liquid flows out of the Ellipti–fin to the high-pressure receiver for return to the system. This mode of operation consumes NO WATER.

 

Evaporative Mode
  • Once the temperature set point can no longer be met, the unit switches to evaporative mode
  • The evaporative mode utilizes evaporative and dry cooling simultaneously to significantly increase cooling capacity
  • The ARID fin Pak coil reduces water loss and plume by heating saturated discharge air as it leaves the unit

ATC-DC_EvaporativeMode_PofO

The refrigerant gas is discharged from the compressor into the inlet of the ARID fin Pak dry coil, which is positioned in the dry air stream above the unit’s drift eliminators and below the fan section. The axial fan draws into the unit, through the bottom inlet louvers. The air is drawn upward through the wet coil into the drift eliminators (which remove entrained water droplets from the air stream) and through the ARID fin Pak coil, where heat from the refrigerant gas transfers to the air as it comes into contact with the tubes and densely packed fins of the ARID fin Pak coil.

The refrigerant gas exits the ARID fin Pak coil and travels via inter-connecting piping (by others) to the inlet of the Ellipti–fin Coil located in the lower section of the ATC-DC Condenser. Water from the condenser’s sump is circulated over the wet coil as the ambient air is simultaneously drawn into the unit and travels up through the Ellipti–fin. A portion of the spray water evaporates into the air stream as it travels through the wet coil. This evaporative process cools the spray water, which in turn cools the coil tubes and extended surface fins. The cool tube walls and extended surface fins cause the refrigerant gas to give up heat and condense into a liquid. The condensed liquid flows out of the Ellipti–fin to the high-pressure receiver for return to the system. Water that has not evaporated falls into the sump and is recirculated through the water distribution system located above the Ellipti–fin.
