Premier Evaporative Precoolers

CARRIER 125 TON CONDENSING UNIT

THIS IS A TYPICAL ARRANGEMENT FOR A 125 TON CARRIER AIR COOLED CONDENSING UNIT WHICH IS LOCATED IN A DEATH VALLEY RESORT. THIS UNIT DOES NOT MEET DEMAND DURING EXTREME TEMPERATURES WHICH IS COMMON FOR THE AREA. 

nTHIS PRECOOLER APPLICATION PRESENTS FEWER DESIGN AND INSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS THAN THE PREVIOUS UNIT.  IN THIS APPLICATION, THE PRECOOLERS WERE ATTACHED TO THE CONDENSER UNIT WITH MINIMAL ENCLOSURES.
 

                                               

nTHIS VIEW SHOWS THE SIDE OF THE UNIT WITH THE PIPING.  A TOP ENCLOSURE PANEL WAS USED TO SEAL OFF ANY AIR FLOW AROUND THE PRECOOLER.  8 THICK CELDEK MEDIA WAS ALSO USED IN THIS PRECOOLER.
 

nTHIS VIEW IS OF THE SECOND SIDE OF THE A/C UNIT.  THIS SIDE WAS CLEAR OF OBSTRUCTIONS AND DIRECT ATTACHMENT TO THE A/C WAS POSSIBLE.
 

 

nTHIS VIEW ILLUSTRATES THE HINGED ACCESS PANEL UNDER THE END OF THE CONDENSER.  EXTERNAL PLUMBING WAS INSTALLED BY THE OWNER.  WE DO NOT RECOMMEND PVC SCH 40 PIPING FOR EXPOSURE TO THE SUN.n

PAYBACK ON THIS INSTALLATION WAS ABOUT 6 MONTHS OF OPERATION.
