ALFA-V VLD Industrial V-type dry coolers

General information & application


Alfa-V VLD air cooled liquid coolers have been designed for closed circuit cooling of various process liquids in heavy industrial applications, even in the most severe environments.

Applications include gas or diesel engines and turbine cooling in power plants, electrical distribution in HVDC cooling systems, process cooling from food, plastic industry, steel mill industry, etc.


Optimized coil geometry provides excellent heat transfer, low pressure drop and low fouling thanks to the smooth fins and the large air passage. By default, fins are in Industrial aluminium.

Piping material: copper ø 12 mm (VLD), copper ø 16 mm (VLD6) brazed to copper manifolds and stainless steel (VLDY) TIG welded to stainless steel manifolds. Flanged connections PN10/16 according to EN1092. Manifolds equipped with venting and draining nozzles, on request with manual ball valves.

Separate connections provide the opportunity for independent operation of both cooling coils.


Construction provides high rigidity to withstand vibrations,thermal expansion and rough environmental conditions. Casing, supports and frame made of corrosionresistant hotdip galvanized steel plates, class C4-H as basic level. Alfa LU-VE design fan-collars made in composite material to optimize air distribution increasing performance and reducing energy consumption and noise level. Separated fan sections

Fan motors

Squirrel-cage electric motors, designed exploiting decades of experience in outdoor use. Built to IEC standard 6, 8, 10 or 12 poles, provided with: condensing water outlets, shaft seals and H-class insulation. Construction optimized for use on air heat exchangers. Motors pre-wired to lockable service switches placed outside the fan-collar. Available for various power supplies (std 400/3/50, 460/3/60). Impellers ø 1.5 m are made in high efficiency aluminium wing-blade profile for reduced power consumption and noise emissions.

Design pressure

Design pressure 10 bar. Each heat exchanger is leak tested with dry air at 15 bar. Higher design pressure on demand.
