Vibration Cutout Switch

A factory mounted vibration cutout switch is available to effectively protect against equipment failure due to excessive vibration of the mechanical equipment system. BAC can provide either a mechanical or solid-state electronic vibration cutout switch in a NEMA 4 enclosure to ensure reliable protection. Additional contacts can be provided on either switch type to activate an alarm.

Basin Heaters

Cooling towers exposed to below freezing ambient temperatures require protection to prevent freezing of the water in the cold water basin when the unit is idle. Factory-installed electric immersion heaters, which maintain +40°F (4.4°C) water temperature, are a simple and inexpensive way of providing such protection.

Electric Water Level Control Package


Electric Water Level Control

The electric water level control replaces the standard mechanical make-up valve when a more precise water level control is required. This package consists of a conductance-actuated level control mounted in the basin and a solenoid activated valve in the make-up water line. The valve is slow closing to minimize water hammer.

High Temperature Fill

If operation above 125°F (51.7°C) is anticipated, an optional high temperature fill material is available which increases the maximum allowable entering water temperature to 140°F (60.0°C).

Discharge Screens

Wire mesh screens are available to cover the discharge of the tower to prevent debris from entering the eliminators and cold water basin.

Equipment Controls

BAC control panels are specifically designed to work seamlessly with all BAC units and engineered to meet your particular application.
