Little used BAC model VTL-E 059-H is an open circuit cooling tower rated at 497kW, designed to operate in conjunction with equipment such as cooling towers to ensure water remains free of water-borne bacteria.

Key Benefits

  • Low height 
  • Easy installation 
  • Quiet

VTL-E Characteristics - Counter flow, centrifugal fan, forced draft.

Water Distribution - Pressurized

Maximum Entering Water Temperature

  • 55°C standard fill.
  • 65°C with alternative fill.

Typical Applications

  • Small to medium HVAC and industrial applications Installations with extremely low height requirements Indoor installations.
  • High-temperature industrial applications.
  • Tight enclosures & installations requiring a single air inlet.

Low Height

  • Very low height to fit perfectly on rooftops or tight enclosures.

Easy Installation

  • VTL-E towers are factory-assembled. We ship in one piece for easy on-site lifting and installation. VTL-E offers high capacity and minimum operating weight. Save on steel supports, both underneath the equipment and in the building itself for rooftop installations.
  • Single-side air inlet lets you install next to solid walls.
  • Units can be sited indoors thanks to centrifugal fans allowing intake or discharge ductwork.

Ideal for a Quiet Operation

  • VTL-E units include quiet internal centrifugal fans for minimal surrounding noise. Single-side air inlet, and a quieter tower rear for more noise-sensitive areas.
  • Cut operation noise still further with factory-designed and tested sound attenuators or silencers.

Year-round reliable operation

  • Various corrosion-resistant materials, including the unique Baltibond hybrid coating for guaranteed long service life.
  • Optional Baltiguard Drive System for energy savings and less noise during low load (night). A perfect standby system in case of motor failure.
  • The thermal performance of VTL-E is Eurovent certified.

Easy to Maintain

  • Easy access to all the mechanicals, including fan shaft bearings.
  • BACount individual bundled fill sheets for easy and complete inspection or cleaning preventing full replacement of fill bundles.

Principle of Operation

Warm process water from the heat source enters the spray system at the top of the cooling tower where it is distributed over the fill or heat transfer media. At the same time, the centrifugal fan blows ambient air upwards through the tower. While the warm process water contacts the cold air the latter heats up and part of the process water is evaporated which removes the heat from the remaining water. 

The tower sump or basin collects the cooled water after which it returns to the heat source of the process. The warm saturated air leaves the tower through the drift eliminators, which remove water droplets from the air.

Material Options

  • Heavy-gauge hot-dip galvanized steel is used for external unit steel panels and structural elements featuring Baltiplus Corrosion Protection.
  • The unique Baltibond hybrid coating is an optional extra. A hybrid polymer coating for longer service life is applied pre-assembly to all hot-dip galvanized steel components of the unit.
  • Optional stainless steel panels and structural elements of type 304 or 316 for extreme applications.
  • Or the economical alternative: a water-contact stainless steel cold water basin. Its key components and the basin itself are stainless steel. The rest is protected with the Baltibond hybrid coating.

Heat Transfer Media

  • Heat transfer media is patented BACount fill. Its thermal performance is proven during comprehensive lab thermal performance tests, and it offers you unrivalled system efficiency. We divide the fill pack into compact fill bundles that are easier to remove and replace. Each includes individual fill sheets which are easy to dismantle for thorough inspection and cleaning, hence eliminating the need for frequent fill replacement.
  • In self-extinguishing plastic, which will not rot, decay or decompose.
  • For operation above 55°C, try our optional high-temperature fill, usable with intake water up to 65°C.

Air Movement System

  • With motor-driven centrifugal fan and a V-belt drive. You can easily remove the entire motor base for proper belt tensioning to ensure constantly correct belt alignment. Together with the heavy-duty fan shaft bearings, this guarantees optimal operational efficiency. Single and multi-speed motors available.
  • Centrifugal fan(s) are forward-curved and nearly noiseless. Overcome external static pressure! Use sound attenuators and duct work etc. for air intake/discharge with no loss of thermal performance! The drift eliminators come in UV-resistant plastic, which will not rot, decay or decompose and their performance is tested and certified by Eurovent. They are assembled in easily handled and removable sections, for optimal internal access.
  • Steel eliminators, protected with the unique Baltibond hybrid coating for optimal corrosion protection, are also available for specific applications.

Water Distribution System

This consists of a 

  • Header & spray branches with wide non-clog plastic nozzles secured by rubber grommets. You can easily remove, clean and flush both nozzles and spray branches.
  • A cold water basin with a circular access door, mechanical make up and strainers which are easy to lift out and the anti-vortexing device also helps stop trapped air.
