Air Cooled Heat Exchangers

Air Cooled Heat Exchangers dominate the plots of refineries, petrochemical complexes, natural gas processing facilities and power plants, so consider this:

  • The loss of just 0.01% of daily production due to incomplete condensing means > $1.25MM* of product flared
  • A low cost fan performing 25% less efficiently than purported on the specification sheet can cost you $0.5MM* in increased energy costs
  • Superior fans and bearings can contribute > $0.4MM* in lifecycle maintenance cost savings

* Assuming a 20 year plant life of a single cooler bay in a mega energy project
