Key benefits

  • Lowest energy consumption and total cost of ownership
  • Year round reliable operation
  • Ideal replacement unit with certified thermal performance

Lowest energy consumption and total cost of ownership

  • Evaporative cooling for system-wide energy saving at lower operating temperatures.
  • The highly efficient OptiCoil™ System increases thermal performance up to 30% for the same coil volume lowering the installed fan power by up to 50%.
  • Elimination of potentially excessive operating costs. PFI is Eurovent-CTI certified for both water and glycol. This guarantees thermal performance and it eliminates field thermal performance testing costs.
  • System pump energy savings obtained through shorter coil circuits resulting in lower coil pressure drops.
  • Savings on maintenance and water treatment because the closed loop in PFI cooling towers ensures a contaminant-free cooling circuit.
  • Lower installed costs. PFI has a lower weight, reducing structural and vibration isolation costs. Less glycol is required to achieve the same or higher heat transfer.
  • Water and chemical savings up to 33% because Baltibond® Hybrid Coating allows higher cycles of concentration.

Year round reliable operation

  • Trouble free process operation - The closed loop in PFI cooling towers protects the process fluid and equipment from external contaminations.
  • The thermal performance of PFI closed circuit cooling towers is tested and certified by Eurovent.
  • For extremely cold weather operation, switch off the spray system during periods of reduced load and operate dry.
  • Optimal thermal performance through lifetime. Lab tests have proven that the OptiCoil System reduces scale formation on the coil.
  • Minimum maintenance and downtime- Complete and easy access to all critical components, including coil.
  • Easy-clean and easy-inspect PFI towers reduce hygiene risks from bacteria (e.g. Legionella) or biofilm inside. 
  • Self-cleaning cold water basin sloping towards drain, to prevent sediment build up.
  • Combined inlet shields block sunlight to prevent biological growth in the tower, filter the air and stop water splashing outside.

Ideal replacement unit with certified thermal performance

  • Same or higher capacity. Ideal like-for-like solution, performing per published ratings. The PFI is independently Eurovent-CTI certified for various process fluids.

Low noise

  • A variety of fans is available to offer the perfect solution for every sound challenge.
  • Water silencers achieve noise levels close to those of crossflow towers. Water silencers come always with Whisper Quiet fans.
  • Factory designed, tested and rated sound attenuation is available on the discharge for further noise reduction.

Easy to maintain

  • The PFI closed circuit cooling tower is easier to maintain than other induced draft counterflow cooling towers.
  • Optional coil inspection hatches allow complete and easy access to heat transfer section
  • BranchLok™ water distribution - each branch removable for easy cleaning.
  • Combined inlet shields for easy no-tool removal.
  • Motor adjusters: externally accessible and locking wrench for easy motor alignment and belt tensioning.
  • Full cold water basin access when removing the combined inlet shields.
  • Fans easy accessible via sliding access door.
  • Optional clean out port helps remove silt and sludge from the cooling tower basin.
  • Removable suction strainer anti-vortex hood.

 Ship and install PFI easily

  • Guide pins mean swift PFI cooling tower on-site assembly. The guide pins help reduce section assembly time by up to 75 %!
  • Compact PFI footprint – perfect for confined spaces.
  • Container shipment often possible!
