The FXV3 Closed Circuit Cooling Tower is perfect for applications to maximize system efficiency and space savings for large projects. The FXV3 has the largest capacity in a single cell of any closed-loop system and provides the added value of reduced operating costs, improved reliability, and a cost-effective solution to both the owner and the installing contractor for large projects.
In this webinar, BAC’s Frank Morrison and Andrew Rushworth review how closed loop cooling systems deliver many benefits compared to traditional open loop systems, such as reduced fouling, less risk of fluid contamination, and increased system reliability and uptime. Several methods can be used to “close the loop”, including the use of an open circuit cooling tower coupled with a plate & frame heat exchanger or the use of a closed circuit cooling tower, also called a fluid cooler.

Water Distribution System: Easily access the spray branches and nozzles, even during operation, for maintenance.
Internal Walkway: Allows access to the spacious plenum area for maintenance and inspections of the basin, make-up, fill, and drive system.
Crossflow Design: Easier accessibility reduces maintenance and operating costs which helps ensure peak system energy efficiency.
ENDURADRIVE® Fan System: This state-of-the-art direct-drive solution for evaporative cooling equipment results in almost maintenance-free operation with no gears, sheaves, and belts. There are also no expensive, messy and environmentally harmful oil changes.
FASTEST ACCESS TO KEY COMPONENTS
Fastest access to the cold water basin, spray distribution system, coil, and drive system with the combined crossflow design, large access doors, and an optional internal walkway to easily maintain peak system performance
Reduce downtime by inspecting the spray distribution system and easy access nozzles while the unit is in operation (compared with similar units that have a redistribution basin with hard to reach nozzles that require an additional access point and platform)
Reduce algae growth and debris on the fill with combined inlet shields that block sunlight
Lack of gears, sheaves, and belts results in almost maintenance-free operation with the optional ENDURADRIVE® Fan System
Lower Installation Costs
SAVE MORE THAN 70% ON INSTALLATION TIME COMPARED TO FIELD ERECTED EQUIPMENT
Higher capacity packs more cooling into a smaller footprint resulting in reduced installation cost, space, weight and maintenance
Modular design minimizes site installation with half the lead time of field erected units
Reduce on-site labor requirements and ensure on-time commissioning with factory pre-assembled external platform and ladder options and built-in rigging guides
Simple steel designs and layout flexibility with dual air intakes
Save time and material on piping, welding and valves with half the number of coil connections and flexibility of coil connection location
