DUBAI, UAE, 1 February 2022: The Baltimore Aircoil Company (BAC) recently launched the TrilliumSeries Adiabatic Cooler – TRF model. According to the company, the model has been developed to achieve maximum adiabatic cooling along with high redundancy. Rafael Van Eijcken, General Manager – Middle East, Turkey & India, Baltimore Aircoil Middle East LLC, said, “The new product will be suitable for regions in the Middle East with medium relative humidity and shorter warm peak summer periods.”
Van Eijcken said that while there is growing attention in the region to optimise and balance the energy-water nexus with installing sustainable cooling solutions, the adiabatic cooling products are most suitable for climate zones characterised by medium relative humidity and shorter warm peak summer periods. “The Middle East region has limited areas with these characteristics, and accordingly, demand for such solutions may remain slower,” Van Eijcken said.
The product solutions can find sufficient fit with projects for smaller cooling capacities or combined installations in the Middle East, where during 6-8 months of the year, adiabatic coolers are used and cooling towers cover the long warm summer peak periods.
Elaborating on the benefits of the cooler, Van Eijcken said: “The BAC Trillium product benefits from in-house coils and in-house finned coil engineering, manufacturing and testing. The technology is proven with large installation bases in Europe and US.” The additional features are reliability with multiple fans and higher redundancy, followed by an optimised design for water and air distribution, and low maintenance and ease of inspection, with all components being easily accessible, he added.
With a new focus, the BAC Trillium will be best suited for some areas in the northern part of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), Iraq, Levant, Oman and inland United Arab Emirates, Van Eijcken said. “The new product is designed to run and operate most safely and hygienically, compared to spray-on-coil technologies, where often high drift rates, algae growth on coil, water splash accumulation can cause unhygienic operating conditions and risk to impact the environment,” he said, adding that the Trillium adiabatic cooler fits a safe implementation into HVAC projects, where they may be installed close to other building ventilation equipment.
