Condensing industrial refrigerants in cryogenic processes is a major contributor to energy consumption and has a direct impact on the production output of the facility.

By condensing at lower temperatures, the Wet Surface Air Cooler allows for increased condensing capacity when compared to dry coolers. When comparing to traditional evaporative cooling techniques, such as cooling towers and heat exchangers, the wet surface air cooler can save water as well. Traditional clean water sources are not required so alternative makeup streams allow even further savings.

Applications such as LNG, cryogenic distillation/separation and other industrial refrigeration processes can reduce operating costs and carbon footprint through the use of direct latent heat rejection via Wet Surface Air Cooling. The evaporative condensing process reduces the amount of air required for cooling and thus lowers motor power consumption as well.
