Occidental Permian Ltd.'s CO2removal plant in Denver City, Texas, selected a closed-loop, evaporative (wet surface) cooler from Niagara Blower Co., Buffalo, N.Y., to cool the plant’s process streams.

The custom Wet Surface Air Cooler (WSAC) will include a corrosion-resistant polyurethane coating on the hot-dipped galvanized after fabrication basin interior. Combining a heat exchanger and cooling tower in a single structure, the WSAC systems are a heat transfer technology that provides lower outlet temperatures while requiring less space and horsepower. The system can use poor quality water as spray makeup.
