1. Installation context
The Experimental Institute for Agricultural Mechanization (ISMA) is an institute of the Ministry of Agriculture, founded in 1967, with several headquarters in Rome and a peripheral one in Treviglio: its purpose is the improvement and new implementation of agricultural machinery.
At its headquarters in Treviglio, Bergamo Province (Italy), an electronically controlled hydraulic test bench for vehicles up to 15 T is in operation: the process oils in this device needed a high-performance cooling solution that would keep the quality of the oils unchanged.
2. Proposed solution
To meet the oil cooling needs of the Institute’s hydraulic test bench, an MCC M closed-circuit cooling tower was provided: non-corrodible fiberglass body, easy access and internal inspection through internal doors.
The solution adopts a closed circuit to keep the process liquid unaffected and ensures efficiency and performance typical of evaporative technologies.
3. The key to success
The supplied cooling tower has met the cooling needs of the Experimental Institute for Agricultural Mechanization: results include the high efficiency and performance typical of evaporative cooling, the non-alterability of the process fluid due to the closed circuit, and the ease of inspection and maintenance of the solution due to the side doors.Ask for Information
In this project
The mechanical industry includes the most diverse sectors, in addition to metal and plastic processing: compressors and test benches are significant examples. Required temperature differences and water quality vary greatly depending on the industry: evaporative cooling towers can be used, preferably open-circuit ones (with exchange packs for dirty or clean water depending on the context) and adiabatic coolers for consumption optimize.
MCC Closed-Circuit Evaporative Cooling Tower
Some industries need to keep the chemical-physical characteristics of the process fluids unchanged: in these cases, MCC closed-circuit evaporative cooling tower joins the game. Possibility to work in free-cooling mode. MCC-EC version available with electronically controlled fans.
