The direct air cooling system has various issues, such as inadequate safety measures, restricted performance, high coal consumption for power generation during unpredictable cross winds in summers, and challenges with anti-freezing in winters. After more than a decade of R&D, manufacturing and application experience, Longhua Technology Group has developed a new high-efficiency condensing device - the hybrid cooler. This new device combines the optimized direct air cooling system with the evaporative condenser system to solve these problems. The hybrid cooler is primarily used for cooling and condensing the exhaust steam produced by steam turbines.
Inadequate safety measures, limited performance, high coal consumption for power generation during unpredictable cross winds in summers and issues with anti-freezing in winters present major problems with the direct air cooling system. Longhua Technology Group has worked on these issues for over a decade and has developed a solution to optimize the direct air cooling system and the evaporative condenser system. This optimized combination has resulted in the development of a new high-efficiency condensing device - the hybrid cooler.
The hybrid cooler is mainly based on air-cooled heat exchange, and evaporative heat exchange is an optimization measure to reduce back pressure. Exhaust steam of steam turbine enters direct air cooling tube bundle and evaporative condenser through the main exhaust tube, and condensed water is collected in exhaust device and is sent back into system for recycling through pipeline. Non-condensable gas is pumped out and discharged into the atmosphere by the vacuum-pumping system.

Improved indoor air quality: The hybrid cooling system improves indoor air quality by reducing the number of pollutants in the air and creating a more comfortable indoor environment.
Hybrid coolers, also known as peak load cooling systems, are typically used in large industrial applications that require cooling during peak periods of high demand. Here are some of the most common applications of hybrid coolers:
Power plants: Hybrid coolers are commonly used in power plants to provide additional cooling during peak demand periods. By reducing the need for traditional cooling systems during these times, power plants can reduce their energy usage and operating costs.
Data centers: As data centers continue to grow in size and complexity, the need for more efficient cooling systems has become increasingly important. Hybrid coolers provide an effective solution for managing peak loads and reducing overall energy usage.
Manufacturing facilities: Many manufacturing processes require significant amounts of cooling, particularly during peak production periods. Hybrid coolers can help to ensure consistent cooling performance while reducing energy usage and operating costs.
Commercial buildings: Large commercial buildings, such as office towers and shopping centers, often require high levels of cooling during peak demand periods. Hybrid coolers can provide additional cooling capacity without the need for additional chillers or cooling towers.
Hospitals: Hospitals require reliable cooling systems to ensure the comfort of patients, as well as the proper functioning of medical equipment. Hybrid coolers can help to manage peak loads and reduce energy usage without compromising patient care or safety.
