The Baltimore Aircoil Company (BAC) has launched the ENDURADRIVE Fan System for mission-critical cooling applications.
The fan system features permanent magnet, direct-drive technology, in which the fan motor is directly coupled to the fan, eliminating the need for intermediary moving parts like gears or belts.
It is specifically engineered so that the motor, VFD, and cooling tower work together to provide unparalleled reliability.
ENDURADRIVE’s design reduces the risk and cost of failures due to moisture ingress, with upgraded insulation, a double O-ring, a drive-end seal, and an integrated drain.
BAC offers an application-specific VFD with firmware designed and tested to optimize system reliability for any application.
The fan is engineered and CTI certified for extreme duty and to withstand thermal and vibration rigors of cooling tower operation.
The streamlined design also allows for easier overall inspection, maintenance, and service compared to other options on the market, thus reducing unplanned downtime over the lifetime of the system.
In addition, equipment-specific VFD software ensures seamless integration into any cooling tower application.
The ENDURADRIVEFan System is the most energy-efficient fan system available for evaporative cooling equipment. It reduces energy costs by 3–5% by eliminating energy transmission loss through belts and gears.
In addition, BAC’s state-of-the-art permanent-magnet technology enables unmatched efficiency at part load by eliminating stator losses and reducing rotor losses.
