U.S. heat exchanger manufacturer Baltimore Aircoil Company (BAC) has acquired Italian manufacturer Eurocoil SPA, strengthening its position in European cooling markets.
Eurocoil will supplement BAC’s existing portfolio with heat exchangers for its evaporative, hybrid and adiabatic cooling solutions.
BAC’s TrilliumSeries Adiabatic Products, which are widely employed in transcritical CO2 (R744) installations, was released in Europe in 2005.
“We’re excited to welcome Eurocoil to the Baltimore Aircoil Company family,” said Don Fetzer, President of BAC. “The acquisition of Eurocoil and our previous investment in Coil Design Corp in North America, positions BAC to accelerate the development of industry-leading evaporative, hybrid and adiabatic technologies, furthering our vision to reinvent cooling to sustain the world.”
Eurocoil specializes in the manufacture of heat exchangers for European markets, providing solutions for both commercial and industrial application areas. The company constructs made-to-measure finned block heat exchangers up to 12m (39.4ft) in length, including a number of special designs with on-to-three bends.
Eurocoil produces CO2 evaporators and gas coolers with K65 high-strength copper alloy tubes. The tubes are tested on the company’s new leak test line up to 120bar. The company also manufactures CO2 heat exchangers capable of functioning in seawater or at temperatures up to 300°C (572°F).
“Eurocoil is an excellent organization composed of quality people and industry experts,” said David Jacobs, BAC’s Vice President and Managing Director for the EMEIA region. “They have a history of providing exceptional products and services to their customers, which matches extremely well to the BAC strengths and culture.”
“We welcome all of the Eurocoil employees to The Baltimore Aircoil Company and are excited to be working with them on a successful future together,” Jacobs added.
