By taking advantage of the ambient temperature and without the utilization of compressors, the Ecodry system represents the simplest, most efficient, clean, safe and affordable equipment for any process or facility requiring water cooling at temperatures of 30°C (85°F) or higher.
Through a single set of uninsulated pipes, the water returning from the process is pumped into heat exchangers and cooled with ambient air flow. There is no process water evaporation in this closed system. As a result, it provides clean water at the right temperature to process machines year round.
What makes the system smarter begins with a closed-circuit adiabatic fluid cooler, in place of a traditional cooling tower.
Under cold weather conditions, Frigel offers glycol or self-draining water units for freeze protection.
A variety of features make the Ecodry system more energy efficient than cooling tower systems.
Alternatively, you can use the Ecodry with individual Microgel (combination chiller/temperature control unit) or Turbogel (TCU) machines to achieve accurate temperature control with minimal temperature variation at each machine.
In that case, a single set of uninsulated pipes supplies the cooling water, without heat gain, to each machine. By controlling temperature and providing optimum flow and pressure at the point of use, you conserve energy and optimize molding efficiency.
