Maintains clean coolant constantly through your equipment. A PCX is a packaged cooling system which uses a plate and frame or a shell and tube type heat exchanger to cool equipment by a closed loop using an external water source, such as plant process water, tower water, pond or river water. The closed loop may be filled with a water-glycol mixture, deionized water, city water, or other clean heat transfer fluid.

The HydroThrift PCX system assures that no entrained air, contaminants, air-borne dirt or chemicals from treated or untreated water, as in open or "once-through" cooling systems, are evident in your liquid cooled equipment.

Increase life, reduce maintenance costs. Service life of your production equipment is extended because scaling, liming, and corrosion on coils, water jackets and heat exchangers are prevented, resulting in higher efficiency in your equipment, less repairs, maintenance and downtime, and lower per hour operating cost.

Another reason for efficient service is that flow, temperature and pressure in operation are controlled in the highly engineered HydroThrift PCX system, minimizing the costly inconsistencies found in external "once-through" cooling.

Compact, easy to install. The prepackaged unit consisting of the pump, control panel, and mounted heat exchanger, is delivered to you with built-in temperature and pressure gauges monitoring pump and heat exchanger inlet and outlet parameters.


A. Connect the external water source to the appropriate heat exchanger connections.
B. Connect the piping from the heat load to the vent and surge tank, and, the return line from the heat exchanger to the heat load.
C. Connect the main power source to the control panel
D. Fill the system with clean coolant through the convenient surge tank access.

The bottom line is that HydroThrift cooling systems provide continuous, high efficiency heat transfer and deliver it at less initial cost with better pay back than many other cooling systems.
