SPX Cooling Technologies Announces New Recold® LC Evaporative Condenser

Reduces refrigerant charge and lowers energy consumption for commercial refrigeration and HVAC customers

SPX Cooling Technologies, Inc., a full-line, full-service industry leader in the design and manufacture of cooling towers, fluid coolers, evaporative condensers and air-cooled heat exchangers, announces the new Recold® LC Evaporative Condenser. Its unique design reduces refrigerant charge by up to 40 percent and lowers fan energy consumption by up to 50 percent compared to conventional evaporative condensers.

Well-suited for condensing halogenated refrigerants in supermarket refrigeration systems, small refrigerated warehouses and modular HVAC applications, the Recold LC is an induced-draft counterflow system that incorporates patent-pending heat transfer technology and single-piece installation.

With standard unit heights less than 10.5 feet, the Recold LC meets many municipal code height requirements and offers advantages for rooftop installations where low visibility is important. Benefits include single-piece installation, single-point power connection, factory-installed controls, and factory wiring and testing.

It includes a bolted stainless steel collection basin, and all parts exposed to circulating water are heavy-gauge series 300 stainless steel. For convenience, six to 10 gasketless doors per cell can easily be removed for access to interior components.

The Recold LC’s copper heat transfer coils resist corrosion and offer superior thermal efficiency, which allows for a compact footprint and a long service life. The bacteriostatic, recyclable coils also weigh 30-40 percent less than galvanized steel coils, require less refrigerant charge and accommodate multiple rack systems.

The unit’s high-efficiency, low-sound, electrically commutated motors with direct drive airfoil impellers require no routine maintenance. Integral speed control eliminates the need for an external variable speed drive. The Recold LC also includes PVC drift eliminators that are removable for inspection.
