What do you do if your Air Cooler gets really cold?

Wrap it in a Galebreaker Blanket!

Air cooled equipment uses ambient air to cool a process or system by transferring the heat across a very efficient heat transfer surface into the surrounding environment, simple and effective.

Typically the medium used to cool the system or process will be water mixed with an antifreeze to prevent freezing in the colder months, however, in extreme climates where the temperature can fall to -30C and below even the antifreeze additive may not be enough.

The Solution

Using Galebreakers’ compact tube mounted motorised rolling door connected to a temperature probe in the circulating fluid, solid rolling doors automatically deploy to protect the coils from the effects of freezing winds, removing the risk of freezing on your air cooler.

Fitting these automated doors to the unit is a simple case of installing bespoke brackets and runners to the air cooler frame, the final result looked as if it was designed to be there all along including manual overrides in case of power failure.

Suitable for evaporative and dry cooling systems, in both standard and marine grade materials, makes this a simple solution to freezing risk.

Key Points

  • Cost effective, bespoke weather protection system.
  • Easy and fast installation.
  • Minimal additional steelwork required.
  • ROI? Providing the equipment never freezes then this will certainly have paid for itself!
