Closed Loop Cooling Systems

Plate and Frame Systems

  • Buns

Motivair Plate and Frame systems are a combination of a stainless steel plate and frame heat exchanger, mounted on a common skid with a closed loop fluid circulation pump and control panel. The raw water is passed through one side of the exchanger, while the pump forces a closed circuit water or glycol solution through the clean side. In this way, the raw water cools the closed loop fluid, which in turn cools the heat load, without any risk of equipment contamination.

Optional duplex pumps, and heat exchangers provide added redundancy, and allow one exchanger to be disassembled for cleaning while the other is in service. The limitation of a Plate and Frame cooling system is the fluid can be cooled to within a few degrees of the raw water temperature. Visit our pages on dry fluid coolers, closed loop evaporative towers, and air cooled chillers if other fluid temperatures are required.
