Niagara Blower to Provide Evaporative Cooler for Oxy CO2 Removal Plant

(Buffalo, NY) Niagara has been selected to engineer, manufacture, and supply a Wet Surface Air Cooler (WSAC(TM)) closed-loop, evaporative cooler for the Occidental Permian, Ltd. CO2 removal plant in Denver City, Texas. The WSAC cooler will cool the plant's process streams.

This custom WSAC system will feature a corrosion resistant polyurethane coating on the hot dipped galvanized after fabrication (HDGAF) basin interior. Peter Demakos, P.E., Niagara President, commented, "Each WSAC cooler or condenser is customized based on the location and application to meet the customer's specific needs. The protective coating was offered to Oxy for long service life in harsh conditions."

Niagara WSAC systems combine elements of a tubular heat exchanger and cooling tower in a single structure and are a cost-effective heat transfer technology providing lower outlet temperatures and requiring less space and HP. A WSAC cooler or condenser can also use poor quality water as spray makeup.

Niagara Blower is a design-build manufacturer providing engineered solutions to heat transfer applications at power, process, refinery, food and brewing facilities worldwide since 1904. Niagara's customized product lines include WSAC closed-loop, evaporative coolers and condensers and "No-Frost"® liquid desiccant dehumidification systems.
