The Series 3000 Cooling Tower leads the industry with the highest efficiency and trusted reliability from BAC. Maintenance is also easiest with an open interior that allows for easiest access to all major components and the optional ENDURADRIVE® Fan System that requires virtually no maintenance for unmatched peace-of-mind. Extreme Efficiency (XE) models further reduce energy and operating costs.
Note: Operating costs based on fan kW x $0.12kWh x 2500EFLH (equivalent full load hours) x 20 years (2011 ASHRAE Handbook HVAC Applications) x 3% per year energy inflation factor.
Lowest Energy Usage
UP TO 40% MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT WITH XE MODELS*
Extremely efficient XEModels are at least two times more energy efficient than the minimum requirements established in ASHRAE Standard 90.1
XE models help to contribute to Energy and Atmosphere LEED® Credits (EAc1)
Average payback of less than two years with BAC’s enhanced selectionswhich include user-defined life-cycle cost inputs based on energy savings and minimum payback
*Compared to standard cooling towers.
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.
Water Distribution System: Easily access the hot water basin and spray nozzles 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.
Lowest Maintenance Costs
FASTEST ACCESS TO KEY COMPONENTS
Easiest access to the cold water basin, hot water basin, and the drive system with the crossflow design, large access doors, and an optional internal walkway
Fast inspection of the spray water distribution system while the unit is in operation
Factory Assembled Platforms and Ladders (Optional): Reduces the cost of installation while ensuring on-time commissioning and allows operators to safely inspect the nozzles while the unit is in operation.
PRE-ASSEMBLED PLATFORMS AND LADDERS
Reduce on-site labor requirements and ensure on-time commissioning with factory pre-assembled external platform and ladder options
Ensure proper fit for any application with flexible inlet/outlet piping connection locations
For field assembly, knockdown units are available
Reduce installation costs by eliminating overhead piping and piping support requirements with the optional EASY CONNECT® Piping Arrangement
Optional basinless construction is ideal for installations that use a common sump for multiple tower cells
Increased Layout Flexibility
For large projects, minimize space needed by fitting multiple units together
Installations can be easily expanded with additional cooling tower cells
Variety of options to meet layout requirements, including a range of structural steel spacings and a velocity recovery stack for additional cooling
