Klima-Therm was presented with the accolade at the ACR News Awards ceremony on 21 March at The Tower Hotel, overlooking London’s iconic Tower Bridge.
The recent success follows a win for the same pioneering product at the RAC Cooling Industry Awards and the National ACR & Heat Pump Awards held earlier this year.
Althermo's DMR-H is a revolutionary new hybrid adiabatic dry cooler, designed in the form of a compact cylindrical module. It delivers exceptional energy efficiency and application flexibility thanks to several important innovations in components, design and control.
Thanks to its distinctive shape, it can draw air in from all around and can be installed very close to walls. The combination of these elements allows the installation area of the dry cooler to be reduced by 75 percent.
The ACR News Awards judges were particularly impressed by the innovation evident in the Althermo DMR-H, shown most clearly in its breaking of the traditional mould with a cylindrical shape which results in very many benefits for a solution to recurring real-world installation problems.
Roberto Mallozzi, managing director of Klima-Therm, said: “A hat-trick of awards for the Althermo DMR-H is a powerful indication of the high quality and innovation present in this ground-breaking product. The product packs a huge amount of cooling into a very compact space which, combined with its flexibility and modularity, opens up opportunities that would be impossible with conventional cooling plant.”
He added: “I am so grateful to the brilliant teams at Klima-Therm and Althermo for making this – and our other wins – possible. Their dedication and bone-deep commitment to continuous innovation is inspiring.”
Althermo's DMR-H dry cooler can be used as a single module or multiplexed to create a compact array, providing high performance, high efficiency cooling up to 2.3MW.
The same innovative design features are used for a refrigerant-based remote condenser version of the product, designated CMR, making a complete range for all typical heat rejection requirements.
The standard version is provided with electrically commutated (EC) fans, but AC fans are also an option.
Other options include acoustic treatment for whisper-quiet operation, a protective coating for aggressive atmospheres, and closed-circuit operation through the installation of another plate heat exchanger with recirculating pump for glycol-free free-cooling in existing systems.
