Smardt has revamped the oil-free air cooled chiller line to give you more of what you need (higher performance) without the things you don't (bulky size, noisy fans, excessive refrigerant).
Smardt air cooled is up to 9% more efficient and 5 DBA quieter fans than the previous design. Plus the new design boasts a smaller foot print and decreases the required refrigerant charge by as much as 40%! How's that for an upgrade?
All these benefits are standard to all Smardt air cooled chillers. Guaranteeing that by using Smardt you are specifying the best air cooled chiller that provides the most value to the property owner.
Model Designation: EC
Available Tonnage: 80-250 tons
IPLV Range: ~0.4 kW/ton
Smardt is the first to bring magnetic bearing compressors to the evaporative condensed chiller world.
The development of the EC line is driven by the customer need for improved efficiency, low sound, lower required electrical line sizes, and most notably, reliable performance at higher ambient conditions over an air cooled chiller.
Although an evap condensed unit would be highly efficient in any climate, here in Southern California, this is your go to chiller for any application 10+ miles from the ocean.
Model Designaion: LA
Available Tonnage: 80-540 tons
IPLV Range: ~0.45 kW/ton
The Smardt condenserless comes into play in two major ways:
1. As a superior energy savings retrofit for an existing condenserless chiller.
2. For the innovative engineer aiming to build up a top of the line system (with several potential LEED points).
If you couple the Smardt Condenserless with other innovative technologies such as the Evapco Ellipti-finned eco-ATW evap-condenser with Super Low Sound Fan and Pulse~Pure non-chemical water treatment, points for EA1, WE1 or 2, IEQ5, and IEQ9 are possible.
Want to take chillers to the next level? Smardt's three new product offerings will give you the boost to be at the forefront of superior energy savings with the greatest system design flexibility. By integrating oil-free compressor technology to classic chiller methods, you now have the widest array of part load options at your command.
Are you making the most out of the space in your mechanical yard when laying out cooling towers?
For more critical applications, engineers will specify either two separate towers sized for 50% or two separate towers at 100%.
While this is all well and good with respect to redundancy, this approach of two separate units requires a lot of space. This is due to the required airflow clearances between the towers to ensure proper performance.
To make the most of your jobsite real-estate, select one tower with two-cells. This essentially combines your two towers into one while accounting for the airflow lost on the shared side. Each cell can be sized for 50%,100%, or whichever level of backup you prefer. Though adjacent, each cell will operate independently of the other to provide redundancy. When you eliminate the gap between the units you minimize the overall footprint clearance required.
This same concept is also applicable to selecting multiple towers to match numerous chillers. For example, do not select three towers for three chillers. If you have three 150 ton chillers, request a single 450 ton three-cell tower. You'll have the staging capabilities with the smallest footprint available.
The key is identifying the application and selecting the tower cells to match the required staging or redundancy.
This is just one space saving method. Do you have a tower layout that could use improvement? Or a tower that must fit in a challenging space? I would be happy to help.
