Introducing the ElectraTherm Active Cooler, The Radiator With A Payback
All engines produce heat. All radiators consume power.
Only the Active Cooler removes heat while generating power.
And it does it all with no additional costs.
Through the continued development of the Power+ Generator, our Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) heat to power solution, the Active Cooler was born.
The purpose behind this development was to provide a net-zero power cooling solution that also generates power as a secondary function when its cooling function is not fully utilized. The result is a highly efficient ORC cooling system that takes advantage of an existing resource allowing your company to benefit from a more circular economy and achieve sustainability goals.
Historically, radiators are fully utilized during the summer and grossly underutilized during the winter – providing little to no benefit. With the Active Cooler, maximum capital utilization can still be achieved year-round with varying operating conditions such as ambient temperature differentials. Our net-zero cooling solution completely eliminates power usage from the cooling process during the summer as well as generates extra power and income during times of underutilized capacity such as the winter.
The ElectraTherm Active Cooler is a perfect fit for any business that implements commercial radiators to expel large amounts of excess heat. Most of the time you would be surprised by the amount of usable thermal is available on site – landfills, waste water treatment plants, hospitals, biogas, plastics, steel – all of these industries produce large amounts of heat and need cooling. Let us be your solution.
Designed to be both simple and flexible, standard interface connections allow the Active Cooler to be easily integrated into your existing system. Available in 800 kWth (AC800) and 1800 kWth (AC1800) sizes, the Active Cooler is scalable to multiple megawatt heat loads.
All radiators need to replaced eventually. Let us be your solution.
By upgrading to the ElectraTherm Active Cooler you benefit from a zero power radiator that pays for itself, increases efficiency, and generates emission-free electricity. With a 20-year design life and a payback period of 3 – 5 years, which only gets better if you are already looking to replace your radiator, the economics amount to an attractive ROI.
Through ElectraTherm’s ORC process, the Active Cooler increases efficiency by reducing the parasitic load and adding horsepower. On a 1.6 MW CAT 3520C, the AC800 completely offsets the radiator’s electrical demand while producing additional power. The increased net output leads to a ~ 4% gain in operational efficiency.
Issues With Standard Cooling Units:
- Insufficient cooling during the warmer months leads to reduced performance.
- Faulty coolers can lead to costly engine repairs and maintenance.
- Over time, radiators wear down and suffer from reduced efficiency.
- Radiators cost you money year after year. The Active Cooler makes you money year after year.
Benefits of the Active Cooler:
- Achieve net-zero power cooling while generating emission-free power.
- Reduces parasitic cooling load, increasing efficiency.
- Robust, 20-year design life provides attractive ROI.
- Standard water and power connections with multiple cooling circuits allows for easy integration.
- Reduces or eliminates engine derate at high ambient conditions up to 40°C.
- Pays for itself.
