SPX to Demonstrate Recent Developments in Cooling Technologies at GRC Annual Meeting & GEA GeoExpo+
Overland Park, Kan. – SPX Cooling Technologies, Inc., a full-line, full-service industry leader in the design and manufacture of cooling towers and air-cooled heat exchangers, and sister company, SPX Heat Transfer, LLC, will showcase several innovative technologies at the GRC Annual Meeting & GEA GeoExpo+, October 1-4, 2017, in Salt Lake City. In Booth #113, SPX Cooling Technologies will feature new Marley® cooling tower advances, while SPX Heat Transfer will showcase the Ecolaire® Advanced Direct Contact Condenser (ADCC™). Both companies will also feature OEM components including the new M Series Cooling Tower Geareducer® and a range of aftermarket services.
The new Marley NC Everest™ crossflow cooling tower provides up to 50 percent more cooling capacity than any other pre-assembled cooling tower in the world.* It offers several advantages over traditional field-erected towers for geothermal applications, including up to 60 percent faster delivery and field installation in about 20 percent of the time.* It also offers reduced onsite labor and work duration for safer assembly processes and work environment.
The new Marley F400 modular cooling tower is a field-erected tower that utilizes factory-assembled modules to provide uniform quality components and faster onsite assembly. Sections of the tower are shipped just-in-time to the job site. Faster installation results in a reduced construction schedule.
The new M Series Geareducer is designed and manufactured to directly and easily replace other OEM gearboxes in field-erected cooling towers. The Geareducer’s primary function is to reduce the speed of the electric motor to optimize fan performance. This gear drive goes beyond the American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) requirements to maximize air movement through the cooling tower and to minimize maintenance. It provides primary support to the fan, anchors it against lateral movement, withstands shock loads at startup and during speed changes, and minimizes power transmission losses and noise generation.
The Ecolaire ADCC is licensed technology designed for geothermal power that condenses steam directly from geothermal wells or steam flashed from hot brine. The ADCC uses a turbulent film to condense the steam. The higher thermal efficiency of the ADCC enables many benefits for a geothermal power system.
Representatives from SPX Cooling Technologies and SPX Heat Transfer will be available throughout the show to discuss products, projects and aftermarket support programs.
