Eliminates Water

October 6, 2016 by Daniel Graham

Water is an excellent heat transfer medium when cooling liquids to temperatures unattainable by air-cooled systems.  However, hot gas systems are, by nature of extreme temperatures, not a good application for water-cooled systems.  Thermal shock, liming and plating out in the heat exchangers are serious consequences, and the dangers of the cooling water flashing to steam along with the spiraling costs of water make an air-cooled system the logical choice.
