SPX Dry Cooling Markets

SPX Dry Cooling is a leading global brand in Air-Cooled Condenser design, manufacturing, construction and services. More than 1000 SPX Dry Cooling Systems for Combined Cycle, Coal, Natural Draft Condenser, Parallel Condenser System and

Solar Power Plants have been installed around the world for a wide range of environmental conditions: coastal and desert climates, industrial and urban locations in both tropical and arctic temperatures.

Biomass icon


Biomass is widely used worldwide, to power small to medium power plants. More and more are being equipped with dry cooling systems allowing to speed up permitting, decreasing noise levels and reaching deep vacuum levels.

Solar icon


CSP operates in very arid areas where dry cooling is a must. ACCs are specificallydesigned to bring low parasitic losses, limit water use and allow very flexible operation.

Gas icon


Combined cycle plants are mostly operating as base load and therefore require high efficiencies. This is the most common application for large Air Cooled Condensers, designed to meet high performances during the whole year and installed as quickly as possible to bring power to the network.

Coal icon


Coal fired plants always require flexibility in site selection as dry cooling can offer this. Large, base load plants require robust, maintenance free dry cooling installations operating in all climates.

Geothermal icon


Geothermal plants are established close to the wells which are far from fresh water which leads to dry cooling. ACHE condensates the organice flammable fluid at challenging conditions.

Oil & Gas

Oil&Gas plants generally require a strict follow up of the American Petrollium Institute 661 code. This often operates at high pressure, which needs
robust engineering and manufacturing.

SPX Dry Cooling, with its fully owned heat exchanger manufacturing plants, maintains a world class reputation of reliability and efficiency in power generation and industrial applications for large and small size plants.
