Hydronic Modules


Hydronic Modules

BDI Cooling offer Hydronic Modules to suit a wide variety of applications, from simple pump skids to full thermal control systems.

Our systems use a standardised modular design, allowing a totally bespoke system with limited lead time and minimal costs. As standard, our systems feature Stainless Steel pipework, a galvanized base frame, run/standby pumps and optional integrated control systems.

Modules can be built to suit any requirements, and can include heat exchangers, air separators, strainers (including the unique Hellan Strainer: http://www.hellanstrainer.com/), dosing pots, and pressurisation units.

Systems are designed for ease of maintenance, with pumps and strainers serviceable without taking the full module offline. 

Dry Air & Adiabatic Coolers


Dry Air & Adiabatic Coolers

Dry Air and Adiabatic Coolers play an important role in the removal of surplus heat generated from power stations, chemical plants, commercial air conditioning units, and manufacturing processing plants.

Available in multiple configurations to suit most footprints. Low noise EC fans available. Capable of adding free cooling to systems. The adiabatic options allow a lower temperature process at high ambient conditions. UV kit is included as standard for water treatment

Air & Water Cooled Chillers


Air & Water Cooled Chillers

Packaged, refrigerated Air & Water Cooled Chillers provide cooling all year round. Our low ambient and tropicalised options ensure performance even in extreme conditions. Air cooled units are available from 2kW to 1200kW with fully enclosed hydronic modules.

Available options include: BMS integration, internal process bypass, protective coil coatings, and centrifugal fans for ducted installation.

The option of an external plate or shell and tube heat exchanger allows the chillers a wide operating temperature range.

Where required, we can offer a full range of liquid cooled chillers to take advantage of existing coolant circuits, or install a remote dry air cooler to serve the equipment.

Glycol Antifreeze


Glycol Antifreeze

Ethylene or Propylene Glycol is designed for use in industrial systems. It contains synergistic inhibitors to protect chillers and their associated cooling system against corrosion, scale and algae, thus allowing maximum heat transfer.

IGE: Ethylene Glycol (Industrial Grade Ethylene) is supplied as standard dyed red and NTP: Propylene Glycol (Food Grade Propylene) is dyed blue for identification purposes. Alternative colours are available on request. A very strong taste additive can also be added – both act as 'leak indicators'.

Fluids should be diluted with demineralised, softened or good quality potable water. For exact proportions to achieve the desired frost protection please refer to the Technical Application sheet.

Packed in 25L, 205L UN drums and 1000L IBC's.

20 tonnes+ in stock for despatch within hours if required.

In addition we offer a Fluid Maintenance Program which is a complimentary testing service for all users of our specialist fluids. Visuals are provided for site engineers to take periodic samples and then send to the laboratory for testing. Customers are then presented with a FMP Report which confirms the analysis results and provides recommendations of what actions might be required.

Evaporative Cooling Towers


Evaporative Cooling Towers

Evaporative Cooling Towers are available in a variety of configurations to suit site requirements. Open cooling towers are a cost effective solution for cooling industrial process water. Closed circuit systems maintain the cleanliness of process fluid ensuring it remains free from contamination. The wide range of configurations means that systems can suite a large range of footprint and installation requirements.

Spray Troughs


Spray Troughs

Spray Troughs are designed for metal heat treatment using a high-intensity spray that cools tube and profile extrusions. They offer rapid cooling and occupy less space than a large immersion tank.

BDI Spray Troughs are available in bespoke sizes to suit a wide range of applications and are manufactured in a variety of materials such as Stainless Steel, Aluminium, Brass and Alloy. Other surfaces are painted for corrosion resistance.

Optional recirculation and heat exchanger packages are available to increase recirculating filtration as well as cooling efficiency. Further reductions of maintenance can also be achieved with a filter system for optional process pumps.

Heat Recovery and Free Cooling


Heat Recovery and Free Cooling

Heat Recovery Systems and Free Cooling is a valuable way to reuse otherwise "dumped" energy to reduce overall running costs.

Waste heat from a process can be used to reduce a sites heating requirements, either for another process, or for general heating and hot water by the use of an additional heat exchanger on the main cooling circuit. This has the dual advantage of reducing heating costs, and those of the cooling system, as the cooling duty is at least partially served by the heat recovery system.

Free cooling is achieved by the addition of a dry air cooler into a chiller's process cooling circuit, using ambient air to provide some or all of the system's cooling duty when temperatures are low enough. The type of system has the advantage of reduced running costs with no reduction in operational capacity.

Control Systems with BMS Integration


Control Systems with BMS Integration

The control panel in many ways is the focal point of any system. It can turn a simple pump set into an intelligent part of a greater system. The power of a bespoke, in-house, control system is that it is tailor made to suit the process it is controlling. Modular drive and processing units combine with powerful control software to allow precise, reliable regulation of equipment. 
Temperature and pressure sensors provide information for process control, indication and alarm output and inverter drive technology is available for precise control and energy efficient operation. 

Emergency Cooling Systems


Emergency Cooling Systems

Systems such as furnaces, autoclaves and metalworking processes often risk damage in the event of emergency shutdown or power failure due to the high temperatures involved. An emergency cooling system integrated within the main cooling water process can mitigate for this.

A number of solutions are available that can be integrated into the majority of our systems. Where temporary cooling is required in the event of a power failure an air powered diaphragm pump included as part of the main pump set is capable of providing emergency flow through process equipment and dry air coolers in order to facilitate a safe cool down of the equipment. 

In situations where cooling must be maintained in the event of a system failure, a mains water bypass can be incorporated to maximise system uptime until normal cooling can be restored. For planned outages, or medium to long term management of emergency cooling, hire systems are available at short notice, including pump sets and packaged water chillers suitable for demanding environments.

Temperature Control Units


Temperature Control Units

BDI Cooling offer simple and effective temperature regulation to suit your application needs. Both our Oil and Pressurised Heaters provide reliable temperature control at various heating capacities.

Units can be built to order or tailor made to suit any process application including:

  • Oil: Standard operation of 38 °C to 288 °C
  • Pressurised: Standard operation of 0 °C to 112 °C
  • Direct injection water and oil units
  • Communication to Modbus, SPI and more.

BDI Cooling aid manufacturers in the plastics, food, rubber and chemical industries to maintain consistent temperatures and maximum productivity. 

Furthermore, the BDI-Temp features the ‘Advanced’ and ‘M2B+’ controller which provides intelligent process analysis and enhanced process quality control.
