This hybrid cooler maintains peak performance for a variety of applications where water is scarce, water costs are high, uptime is critical, or plume is a concern by delivering energy-efficient cooling while maximizing water savings. It uses innovative combined flow technology, which combines parallel air and water paths, ensuring peak system energy efficiency. Maintenance is easy with immediate access to the cold water basin, prime surface coil, and the fan drive system. Additionally, the spray distribution system can be inspected while the unit is in operation. Other features include uninterrupted operation with multiple fans and optional redundant pumps, trouble-free winter operation, and EVERTOUGH®Construction and TriArmor® Corrosion Protection Systems. For projects requiring plume abatement, the HXV has no plume when operating dry, and the dry coil provides natural plume abatement when running wet.
