Water has a cost and can be expensive. It needs to be bought, pumped and filtered – all costly processes that are eliminated when choosing an air cooled heat exchanger. In addition, government restrictions and fees may apply when letting out heated waste water.
Factories and energy plants are often placed remotely where water may not be available or in scarce supply. This makes air cooled heat exchangers an easy choice of cooling method.
Water is a limited resource and will be even more so in the future, with far-reaching implications. By using an air cooled heat exchanger you are contributing to conserving our planet's water resources.
