Güntner latest V-SHAPE Compact offers cost-savings, efficiency to refrigerating plants

Güntner’s newly developed V-SHAPE Compact family are available as fluid cooler, condenser and gas cooler and offers maximum capacity on a remarkably small footprint when operated in dry mode. The optional HydroPad (humidification pad), used for adiabatic pre-cooling allows for users to operate refrigerating plants more efficiently, thereby saving money – no water treatment, no intense maintenance works and no wetting of the coil required.
The V-SHAPE Compact with HydroPad comes with Güntner Hydro Management Controller, GHM pad, which with its in-built intelligence will decide automatically whether applying water or increasing the fan speed is more cost-effective.
The new V-SHAPE Compact units completes the product portfolio of the V-SHAPE families at the lower end with regards to capacity. Each heat exchanger is specifically designed for the fluid HFC, CO2 or water/glycol mixture.
It is also operated with the optional adiabatic HydroPad pre-cooling system, which can offer substantial savings. On the one hand, the wetting system can increase the capacity of the unit allowing you to operate smaller units with a reduced footprint without undermining the given capacity requirements. And on the other hand, this option allows for operating all the refrigerating plants more efficiently, thereby saving money. Using the humidification pad, water treatment is not required – simply connect to the drinking water supply, that's it ! Only fresh water is applied, there is no recirculation and thus no vapour and no aerosol output.
The V-SHAPE Compact gas cooler with HydroPad also allows wider application especially in areas where high temperatures and, at the same time, low humidity prevails.
It is also equipped with retractable crane lugs and allow for easy installation and quick mounting. The solid units with their compact casings made of powder-coated, galvanised steel are also extensively tested for stability.
In addition, it allows up to 4 fans per unit in AC and EC technology with a diameter of 630mm and 800mm respectively. For every fan, Guntner offers suitable control concept. Some fan types can also be controlled via voltage (0 – 10 V) or current signal (4 – 20 mA).
Within the V-SHAPE product family, Guntner also offers the adiabatic Hydropad pre-cooling system which is made possible thanks to the V-shape arrangement of the coils. This accessory is the highlight for all the options offered in this product family.
