Downloads: Aluminum Advantage , Comparing Air Cooler Ratings
COLVILLE, Wash. - Colmac Coil Manufacturing Inc. releases new Spanish language versions of the Colmac Coil “The Aluminum Advantage” and “Comparing Air Cooler Ratings” technical bulletins.
“The Aluminum Advantage” Spanish bulletin illustrates how ammonia and aluminum are very compatible and have been used in ammonia heat exchangers for several decades. The properties of aluminum make it an ideal metal to use in ammonia refrigeration applications. The bulletin describes the properties and compares them to galvanized steel, another commonly used combination of metals used for ammonia heat exchangers, to clearly show ‘the aluminum advantage’.
The “Comparing Air Cooler Ratings” Spanish bulletin addresses the differences in the rating methods and highlights the importance of selecting air coolers using ratings suited to the operating conditions. Misapplication of DTM and/or total cooling ratings can result in severely undersized air coolers and the consequent failure of the refrigeration system to perform to energy efficiency and cooling capacity expectations.
