Your Needs, Our Promise
NIMBUS provides practical cooling solutions and superior service allowing our customers to maintain a competitive edge in their markets by keeping water costs, energy costs and health risks at a minimum.
The benefits of NIMBUS' blue cooling technologies provide solutions to virtually all types of operations and facilities, here is a look at the benefits NIMBUS and the VIRGA X3™ & VIRGA III® hybrid adiabatic cooling systems provide to a few select applications:
Generally near residential areas, sound control, health and energy saving benefits are important features for cooling systems in public facilities.
In facilities with high population density such as hospitals, schools, retail stores and transportation centers, it is imperative to prevent the spread of fatal disease and other infectious bacteria. Since VIRGA X3 & VIRGA III hybrid adiabatic cooling systems do not rely on a reservoir of standing water, they virtually eliminate the risk of Legionella pneumophila - the bacteria that leads to no fewer than 50,000 cases of Legionnaires’ disease annually in the United States.
In typical cooling systems the sound energy generated by the impact of falling water, moving fan blades and the vibration of the structure and motors often creates noise pollution to nearby communities. By using a low average fan speed and reducing starts and stops, VIRGA X3 & VIRGA III hybrid adiabatic cooling systems decrease sound profile and fan system maintenance. EC or AC fans, with or without VFD, are available.
Public facilities in warmer climate and drought areas need to be conscious of water usage. NIMBUS® hybrid adiabatic systems saves more than 80% on water compared to fluid cooling towers. Occupying a small footprint, VIRGA X3 & VIRGA III hybrid adiabatic cooling systems save water, virtually eliminate Legionella risk, conserve energy, decrease sound profile and cut maintenance and overall operating costs for a wide range of public facilities including:
- Public/Private Schools
- Health Care
- Airports/Transportation Hubs
- Shopping Centers
- High Rise Towers
- Correctional Facilities
Industrial Processes and Facilities
NIMBUS Advanced Process Cooling's VIRGA X3 and VIRGA III III hybrid adiabatic cooling systems remove heat from various sources such as machinery or heated process material for a variety of industries including food processing, wineries, distilleries, grow facilities, automotive, chemical processing, thermoplastics and other manufacturing applications.
Industrial HVACR systems produce extreme heat that needs to be dissipated to keep prevent over heating and failure. Cooling systems reject this unwanted heat produced by the energy needed to drive the chiller’s compressor. Cooling systems are also essential in HVACR systems with multiple water source heat pumps sharing closed-circuit tubing. VIRGA X3 & VIRGA III are closed-circuit hybrid adiabatic cooling systems that conserves energy with large fans that turn on in stages and only run when required to maintain the desired operating fluid temperature. This system only operates when necessary and consumes considerably less energy than fluid or dry air cooling systems that run continuously.
Large data processing and storage centers require immense amounts of water to cool today's high-density cloud computing server farms. On an annual basis, the VIRGA X3 & VIRGA III require as little as 5% of the water comsumed traditional fluid cooling systems.
Metal Melting Facilities/Induction Heat
American Foundries served as the testing ground for VIRGA hybrid adiabatic cooling systems and our custom-engineered pump modules. Producing extreme heat, cooling towers are essential for induction melting furnaces to operate efficiently. Without proper cooling furnaces and melting equipment are damaged, endangering workers and the foundry. Our advanced process cooling solutions consistently delivered the cooling required to keep these facilities safe and operational throughout our years of testing and beyond.
