Furnace Water-Cooling: The Safer Alternative

As the only non-pressurized water-cooled alternative, SYSTEMS Spray-Cooled™ equipment is the SAFER alternative to conventional furnace water-cooling. Because Spray-Cooled™ equipment operates at atmospheric pressure, the cooling water is not pumped across the area to be cooled. Therefore the potential for high-pressure, high-volume water leaks is eliminated. Positive extraction of the spent cooling water further reduces the amount of water present within the equipment. Furthermore, by nature of its design, SYSTEMS Spray-Cooled™ equipment provides a means for accessing the hot face from the “wet” side of the plate. This provides much SAFER inspection and repair from above and eliminates the need to access the hot face from the “hot” side.

By relying upon water drop impingement cooling at atmospheric pressure rather than stream cooling or evaporative cooling, the Spray-Cooled™ technology provides all the benefits of water-cooling at a greater efficiency than conventional furnace water-cooling methods and in a design that provides a much SAFER operating and maintenance environment in your shop.

Improving furnace reliability while decreasing and easing maintenance requirements, providing safer working conditions in a cleaner environment, reducing the cost of spare parts inventories while extending the service life of the equipment, and providing for more production with less energy – SYSTEMS Spray-Cooled™ furnace water-cooling equipment is “Staying Cool in a Hot Business”.
