  • Reading time:2 min(s) read

The new modular dry coolers in the GEA Searle LF range offer many and various combination possibilities. As a result, they can be optimally adapted to customer requirements with respect to output, costs, noise emission, model size, and efficiency. They are therefore highly effective for many areas of application. These models are available in the capacity range from 8 to 1,340 kW, in flat-bed horizontal or in vertical configuration. The GEA Searle LF range of dry coolers achieves a close specification match through module length options of 1200, 1500, 1800, and 2100 mm in a single (1158 mm) or double (2301 mm) bank configuration. Up to ten fans can be installed in each bank. In this manner, GEA Heat Exchangers can manufacture these units with a maximum length of 12 m and with up to 20 fans. The customer may choose among various fans, including energy-efficient EC motors with a diameter of 910 mm. These EC fans enable continuously variable matching of fan speed to momentary requirements, over an extensive range: which ensures energy-saving, quiet operation. The heat exchangers are also available in various models, including variants with two to four tube rows. As a result of extensive testing, GEA Heat Exchangers has now implemented three tube patterns for this particular new range of condensers: 5/8″, 12 mm or 3/8″. These configurations are differently suited for various applications, and the Searle Product Selector software determines the optimal solution for the user’s application.


The new GEA Searle LF range of dry coolers offers a variety of solutions to cover the capacity range between 8 and 1,340 kW.
