BAC Modular Hybrid Cooler

December 9, 2020

Baltimore Aircoil Company (BAC) has announced enhancements to the revolutionary Nexus® Modular Hybrid Cooler, the world’s first intelligent, plug-and-play, modular hybrid fluid cooler for HVAC and light industrial applications. The cooler, which automatically optimizes energy and water savings, is now available with enhanced water management and more.

The Nexus Modular Hybrid Cooler already had low installation, operating, and maintenance costs, as well as maximum uptime. Now the cooler also provides superior water quality resulting from enhanced water management. An optional water disinfecting system as well as a product redesign now meet even the most stringent local building codes regarding fire safety and noise reduction.

The BAC Nexus Modular Hybrid Cooler minimizes maintenance cost by reducing spray water volume by up to 60% by allowing accessibility to all components at the front of the unit, and by operating dry when temperature and climate allow. What’s more, it reduces water treatment costs with its DiamondClear® Design, which prevents stagnant water in the system and minimizes scale build-up and biological growth. The new optional, compact, and fully-integrated UV water disinfecting system rounds out the product’s enhanced water management system. This UV disinfecting system further minimizes bacterial growth delivering best water quality and enhancing health and safety, all without changing the unit’s footprint.

Corrosion-resistant, premium materials are standard, reducing the need for maintenance. Fan and motor redundancy reduce unplanned downtime. There is no need for permanent ladders or elevated platforms to perform routine maintenance, making the cooler safer overall. New optional accessories are now available to further reduce sound levels and help comply with stringent fire codes and sound requirements.

The Nexus® Modular Hybrid Cooler’s simplified system design delivers a 15% reduction in system costs compared with traditional fluid coolers. The need for a separate heat exchanger has been eliminated. The cooler delivers reduced water treatment requirements, with no sweeper piping or side-stream filtration required. The system’s compact design makes it ideal for constrained spaces, including indoors. This compact design reduces installation costs, as modules can fit into a freight elevator, thus eliminating the need for cranes or helicopters.

This innovative hybrid cooler design also offers up to 50% water savings and 40% energy savings. The iPilot® Control System automatically switches among three modes – fully evaporative, fully dry, or balanced “Nexus® mode – according to environmental conditions, operating priorities and cooling demands. The patented hCore® Heat Transfer Technology and a direct-drive, variable-speed EC Fan System give the Nexus® Modular Hybrid Cooler remarkable efficiency.
