Our latest two cell ACC for Air products Rotterdam.

Replacement of existing 45 year old condenser, built by Balcke Duerr (SPX). 
 
The investment was less than the price of the competition.

 Payback time, less than 1.5 years.
 
 
 
 
Special features:
 
  • With nominal operation conditions 16% over design to overcome losses by wind and fouling.
  • Special turbo operation possible using frequency converters running at 60 HZ, giving 35% more performance.
  • Vacuum steam ejector system with an over design of 400%, for excellent extraction, even with leaks.
  • 20% more steam duct surface to reduce the steam velocity and pressure drop over the duct
  • Single row design for the bundles with a 2 mm thick tube wall
  • Range of control 4 to 30 t/h
  • Integrated freeze protection.
  • No pump wells, all auxiliaries under ACC at ground level.
 
Project duration from award to commissioning:  one year.
