W-Tech becomes Silver Partner on ammonia21.com

The company designs and manufactures heat dissipation systems by using adiabatic technology, such as evaporative cooling towers, coolers and condensers.

Based in Italy, W-Tech is a pioneer of heat dissipation systems that use adiabatic technology, such as cooling evaporative towers, coolers and condensers.

“One of our strengths is the factory-produced systems entirely made with special corrosion resistant materials of carbon steel, coated on both sides with a zinc-aluminium-magnesium alloy,” Massimo Volpini, manager of W-Tech, told ammonia21.com.

To showcase how these ammonia solutions can be used for various applications, the company has become a Silver Partner on ammonia21.com.“We can offer quite a wide range of evaporative ammonia condensers, for commercial HVAC, industrial refrigeration and process, as well power generation,” Volpini said. 
We see HVAC sector progressively requiring more evaporative condensation solutions – rather than systems utilising conventional air-cooled or water-cooled condensers – combined with more compact chiller solutions, for the benefit of performance, generally, as well to achieve lower power consumption."

The condensers are available in capacities from 100 to 5,000 kW.

The company has invested in targeting the industrial sector. “We see HVAC sector progressively requiring more evaporative condensation solutions – rather than systems utilising conventional air-cooled or water-cooled condensers – combined with more compact chiller solutions, for the benefit of performance, generally, as well to achieve lower power consumption,” he said.

The range of evaporative ammonia condensers includes axial fans (induced and forced), standard centrifugal fans and low-profile condensers.

The technology has so far been used in innovative ways. “Some important units were built for the automotive industry, cogeneration plants, refrigeration plants but also simple water cooling,” Volpini said.

W-Tech also sees the benefit of using lower charges of ammonia for safety and efficiency. “Developing more advanced solutions involving lower charge of ammonia will make ammonia more accessible to diverse end users, will involve safer units and will make the installation easier and quicker,” he said.

“With the increasing concern for global warming, our hopes are that the focus on ammonia and natural refrigerants in general will strengthen dramatically in the next few years thanks to the uniformity of the various regulations applied locally, already in place in Europe,” he added.
