Our RFC air blast cooler is one of our most popular energy-saving solutions, as it can be easily retro-fitted onto an existing system, has a short payback period, and can reduce energy consumption by up to 80%.
Air blast coolers work by providing the cooling source during times of the year when the ambient is below the temperature required by the cooling system. Fans in the air blast cooler draw in ambient air and use this to pre-cool the water before it reaches the chiller. As the temperature drops, intelligent controls reduce the load on the compressors, switching them off altogether when the ambient reaches a certain temperature. Up to 100% direct air cooling can be achieved this way, with the result that the inherent high operating costs of the chiller are reduced and its life span greatly extended.
Our RFC air blast cooler comes in flat-bed and V-shape designs, and can be installed in even the most awkward of spaces. They can be easily retro-fitted onto an existing system – with minimal disruption - for immediate energy savings, and have a payback period of 12 months – 2.5 years in most cases.
We have installed many air blast coolers, all with excellent results. Here are just a few comments from our clients:
“We used to have the chillers running all year round. Now, as soon as the temperature is below 16oC, the cooling tower and plate heat exchanger kick in and offload the compressors. Below 10oC we run on 100% free cooling so when the temperature drops, so do our running costs – it’s fantastic”. “Below 18oC we operate at partial free cooling, however the chillers switch off below 12oC. Last winter we were able to switch the chillers off completely, and from September we’ve been running on partial free cooling.”

“We were asked to look out for investments that would benefit the company, and IsoCool, who run the maintenance contract on our chilled water system, suggested that an air blast cooler would provide an excellent ROI by lowering costs. Nigel took me to another site where they’d installed free cooling and the company were kind enough to print off their energy savings for me, which were phenomenal. Considering our chiller had been working really hard throughout the previous winter, it was really a no brainer to invest in an air blast cooler” he said.
