SPX Corp. completed the acquisition of SGS Refrigeration Inc. of Dixon, Ill. SGS manufactures and distributes industrial refrigeration products, including industrial evaporators and evaporative condensers, in the North American market.
The Vertex evaporative condenser reduces installation costs by 30 percent, says the manufacturer. The evaporative condenser design allows the upper part to be aligned to the lower section in less than 15 minutes per cell.
Permatron, Elk Grove Village, Ill., a privately held provider of value-added, application-driven air filter solutions, was acquired by Edgewater Funds and Duchossois Capital Management in partnership with Brandon Ost. Permatron designs and manufactures air filter components such as air-intake protection for cooling towers and evaporative coolers.
Suited for industrial refrigeration applications that require safe design, installation and operation with ammonia and other refrigerants, the Cube is available in both forced draft/blow through (BTC) and induced draft/draw through (DTC) models.
Any industry professional would quickly agree that water is the key ingredient to evaporative cooling system performance. For evaporative cooling equipment like cooling towers, evaporative condensers or fluid coolers, water quality is essential for proper heat transfer and the healthy service life of the equipment.
The annual conference of the Cooling Technology Institute promises a focus on industrial evaporative cooling technologies, cooling towers and water treatment.
