Hydro Coolers

HFB
Features:

  • TUBES: 5/8″ O.D. heavy wall seamless copper tubes for strength and good heat transfer. Return bends are joined to tubes with high temperature brazing alloy. Other tube materials available.
  • FRAME: Tube sheets and braces constructed from heavy gauge mill galvanized steel. Baffles are arranged for waterflow perpendicular to tubes as standard.
  • CIRCUITING: Coils are circuited for direct expansion halocarbon refrigerants.
  • TANK: Constructed of FDA approved, high density polythylene. Non-corroding, heavy-duty tank has supply and return connections, water distribution system tank cover.

Options and Accessories:

  • Stainless Steel Tubes
  • Stainless Steel or Aluminum Casing
  • Glycol or Brine Circuiting
  • Flooded or Recirculated Refrigerant Circuiting
  • Baffles and Tank arranged for submerged operation

Applications:

  • Colmac HFB Baudelot Coolers are used in industrial applications for chilling a liquid to near it’s freezing point. Normally these coolers are used in systems where water is the liquid being chilled. A typical application is to chill process water used to take field heat out of produce.
  • In a produce hydro-cooler, the process water is circulated quickly through the Baudelot Cooler where it reaches a temperature of approximately 32°F. The water is then sprayed over the produce, drains into a sump and is returned to the cooler for another cycle.
  • For the condensing side of your system, Colmac ACV Air-Cooled Condensers offer a cost-effective, virtually maintenance free alternative to evaporative or water-cooled condensing systems.
