Helpman Thor-F

Helpman Thor-F

The Helpman THOR-F air cooler series has been specifically designed for the refrigerated storage of agricultural produce. These coolers are characterised by an optimized capacity/air volume ratio and a relatively low profile. All models have been optimized for air temperatures around 0 °C and a small temperature difference to avoid produce dehydration.

Main characteristics Helpman Thor-F

Standard configuration

  • Coil
    • 2 coil block modules

How it works

Alfa LU-VE finned coil air heat exchangers have been designed to achieve an optimized exchange of thermal energy between air and a refrigerant or fluid. The ‘heart’ of our air heat exchangers is the finned coil, built up from a circuit of interconnected tube serpentines and fins to increase the heat exchanging surface. Thanks to the combination of key design variables (coil materials, coil geometry, casing design, fan type), air units are very versatile heat exchangers with a great variety of applications in many industries. Alfa LU-VE supplies finned coil air heat exchanger products for a wide variety of applications.

Air coolers & air-cooled condensers

Air coolers and air-cooled condensers are key components in air cooling and air conditioning systems. On the refrigerant side the most common media are a brine or an evaporating refrigerant like HFO/HFC, ammonia or CO2. A chilled brine may be supplied from a chiller that is potentially located far away, but a liquified refrigerant must come from a nearby condensing unit. When an evaporating refrigerant is used, the cooling coil is the evaporator in the vapour-compression refrigeration cycle (‘direct expansion’ or ‘DX’ system).

  • Evaporating temperatures +5 to -10 °C
  • Refrigerants: all HFO/HFC, brine, CO2
  • Capacities: (SC2) 7 up to 57 kW
  • Air volume: 5,100 up to 36,000 m3/h
