Key benefits

  • Extremely reliable
  • Ultra compact
  • Minimal maintenance and easy inspection

Extremely reliable

  • The Polairis™ evaporative condenser's design incorporates all experience BAC acquired over the last decades with thousands of VXC units installed globally since 1978.
  • Fan drive systems are located inside the unit, in the dry air, preventing condensation and eliminating corrosion issues and premature failures.
  • Direct driven fans eliminate potential mechanical failures.
  • Multiple, individually driven fans guarantee redundancy.
  • Baltibond® hybrid coating for maximum equipment life, with corrosion resistance equivalent to SST 304L.
  • Dry operation possible.

Ultra compact

  • The most efficient counterflow evaporative condenser on the market.
  • Available up to 1915kW (@35.7/25.6°C).
  • Maximum thermal performance on a truck for minimal transport costs.
  • Compact design for confined spaces, with single-side air inlet lets you install next to solid walls.
  • Units housable indoors thanks to radial fans allowing intake or discharge ductwork.

Minimal maintenance and easy to inspect

  • Direct driven fans require no maintenance at all.
  • The DiamondClear® Design offers a continuous self-cleaning operation. The need for maintenance is minimized by using fully sloping surfaces, a constant impact of falling spray water and high water velocities.
  • Collection basin covers only a fraction of the unit footprint, which makes it subject to higher turbulences. Together with the significantly lower volume (25% reduction versus conventional evaporative condensers), this reduces the chemical usage and need for cleaning.
  • Unmatched accessibility to the basin, drives and fans in the dry section, via the man sized access door at ground level.
  • Water distribution system is easily accessible from outside.
  • Baltibond® hybrid coating for a smooth surface finish that facilitates internal cleaning.

Energy efficient

  • Evaporative condensers yield the lowest condensing temperatures and hereby minimize the system energy consumption.
  • Extremely efficient Whisper Quiet radial fans.
  • EC/PM motors have superior efficiency that exceeds the IE4 requirements. Integrated electronics of the motors allow for variable speed control at a significantly reduced power consumption compared to AC motors with VFD (without the need for electronic filters and shielded cables). AC motors available as alternative when no speed control is required.
  • Lifetime efficiency thanks to the extreme maintenance and inspection capabilities

Superb hygiene

  • The DiamondClear® Design offers a continuous self-cleaning operation. During standstill the sloping surfaces fully drain, avoiding stagnant water and the risk of sedimentation of impurities.
  • A completely encased collection basin eliminates any sunlight ingress, preventing biological growth.
  • Baltibond® hybrid coating for a smooth surface finish that reduces biofilm development.
  • The floor is fully sloped towards the drain - also in the dry section - for easy cleaning.
  • Water treatment system connections are provided as standard.
  • The access door is located in the dry area, eliminating any leakage risk.

Ultra silent

  • Silent radial fans are standard.
  • Single side air inlet allows directing the quiet unit rear towards noise sensitive areas.
  • Sound attenuation is available for the most stringent sound requirements.
