Adiabatic Air-Cooled Heat Exchanger
Guntner ACS air-cooled heat exchanger or condensers with hydroBLU™ Technology can be operated either wet or dry. Both modes can provide excellent air-cooled heat exchanger or condenser performance with a small footprint and low operating costs. The cooling limit, i.e. the theoretically best possible return temperature condensing pressure for the ACS is tied to the wet bulb temperature of the ambient air at the air-cooled heat exchanger or condenser. Our experts will configure the ACS specifically for your application and optimize it for its intended operation in your system. This is the only way of ideally dimensioning the air-cooled heat exchanger or condensers and minimizing the operating costs of the complete system. Benefit from our experience!
Power & Process cooling
The ACS V-SHAPE cooler:
The new V-SHAPE units heat exchanger is specifically designed for the fluid HFC, NH3, CO2 or water/glycol mixture. The core tube diameters and materials, in combination with the fin geometries, provide the best possible combination of maximum capacity and minimum tube volume. Operated with the optional adiabatic HydroPad pre-cooling system and the wide range of accessories, the V-SHAPE leaves nothing to be desired in its performance category!
Technical equipment of the V-SHAPE cooler:
The ACS V-SHAPE coolers are equipped with retractable crane lugs and allow for particularly easy installation and quick mounting. The solid units with their compact casings made of powder-coated, galvanized steel are extensively tested for stability; for instance, Guntner coolers and condensers are subjected to lifting tests to assess the torsional stiffness and to load tests to determine the snow load and the resistance of structures to earthquakes. The capacity ranges from 5 tons up to 600 tons depending on the application; The heat exchangers optimized for CO2 this refrigerant are designed for an operating pressure of up to 120 bar as a standard!

Adiabatic Dry Coolers
At peak ambient temperatures, the air entering the finned heat exchanger is pre-cooled by wetted cooling pads to a temperature approaching the wet bulb temperature, without aerosol formation and without applying water to the finned surface. The pre-cooling process maintains the required leaving fluid temperatures or condensing temperatures at peak ambient conditions. The adiabatic process significantly increases the thermal efficiency of the cooler or condenser with minimal water usage.
The increased thermal performance at peak ambient conditions lowers the total cost of ownership. The reduction in compressor energy usage permits higher COP’s, with a significantly reduced footprint.
Cooling towers or evaporative condensers use water as the evaporative cooling source throughout the year. The adiabatic alternative only uses water at peak ambient conditions thereby significantly reducing water usage, water treatment, chemicals, sewage and the costs associated with each.
