Baltimore Aircoil Company is recognized as the world’s largest manufacturer of evaporative cooling, thermal storage, and heat transfer equipment. BAC products are sold to the commercial building market as components for air conditioning systems, to the food industry for air conditioning and refrigeration applications, and to a broad range of industries for process and power installations equipment cooling.
Baltimore Aircoil Company is a worldwide manufacturer and marketer of heat transfer and ice thermal storage products that conserve resources and respect the environment. Serving air conditioning, refrigeration, industrial, process, and power generation customers, BAC’s product offerings include:
- Cooling Towers
- Closed Circuit Cooling Towers
- Evaporative Condensers
- Aircoil™ Evaporators
- Ice Thermal Storage Systems
BAC products make use of the desirable properties of water, one of nature’s most abundant cooling media, to provide cooling solutions for air conditioning, industrial processes, power generation and refrigeration. In most areas of the world, water is abundant and inexpensive, and its “latent heat”, or ability to reject or absorb large quantities of heat through evaporation (latent heat of vaporization) or freezing (latent heat of fusion) make it ideal for these applications:
BAC’s cooling towers, closed-circuit cooling towers and evaporative condensers make use of evaporative cooling. That is what makes you feel cool when you climb out of a swimming pool or the ocean on a breezy day. Evaporation from the water on your skin pulls heat from your body and makes you feel colder than the surrounding air. The same thing is true in one of our evaporative cooling products. The evaporative cooling principle makes it possible to cool or condense to a lower temperature than simple dry-air cooling, so you save on space, equipment cost, and energy consumption. No wonder evaporative cooling is the first choice at most central chiller plants and industrial cooling installations around the world!
Ice Thermal Storage
Ice thermal storage uses the latent heat of fusion of water to “store” thermal energy as ice. The advantage of this “thermal storage” is the fact that electrical energy can be used during off-peak periods to provide cooling during peak periods. In other words, the operator of an ice thermal storage system can run chillers to generate cooling effect during periods when energy is inexpensive (usually at night), and use the ice to provide cooling for the building system during the peak periods (usually during the day). This is called “demand-shifting,” and in many cases utilities will provide economic incentives for owners to install ice thermal storage systems to shift the electrical demand from peak periods to off-peak periods.
The Cooling Tower Performance Leader
SPX Cooling Technologies is the leading full-line, full-service cooling tower and air-cooled condenser manufacturer. For more than a century, we have provided the highest quality equipment and service to the power generation, industrial, refrigeration, and HVAC markets.
The companies that formed SPX Cooling Technologies were founded more than 100 years ago and have more than 250 global patents in the power generation, industrial, refrigeration, and HVAC markets.
For decades, SPX Cooling Technologies has been a leading producer of counterflow cooling towers for large industrial installations. Today they’re bringing the technology down to size… with the new Marley MD Cooling Tower. The Marley MD is a packaged counterflow cooling tower. Available as both Factory Assembled or Field Erected, the Marley MD has a smaller footprint while providing comparable capacity as a crossflow cooling tower. This induced-draft counterflow tower is ideal for applications with restricted site conditions and/or low energy requirements.
