Brentwood XF80MAx Cellular Drift Eliminator

XF80MAx Crossflow Cellular Drift Eliminators provide the best available drift removal efficiency on the market today. The upward flow path, steep water drainage angle, and tuned venturi section make this the ideal product for factory-built crossflow towers.

  • The engineered venturi design increases the velocity of the exit airflow to eliminate smaller droplets.
  • Patented Mechanical Assembly (MA) technology for environmentally friendly, glue-free packs.
  • Upward flow path and steep water drainage angle maximize the drift removal for crossflow applications, making it fully effective even when installed vertically.
  • 0.86-inch flute spacing effectively removes drift (at the lowest pressure drop) in crossflow towers with high air velocities up to 800 fpm.
  • Can be field-cut for a tight fit around columns and other structures without sacrificing structural integrity (Dri-Seals are recommended for maximum performance).
  • Nests with adjacent modules to provide seamless drift removal by eliminating gaps between packs that can allow drift droplet bypass.
  • Drift loss of 0.0005% circulating water flow (Test Method CTI-HBIK Standard 140; with proper installation and use of Dri-Seals).
  • Material meets CTI Standard 136.

Materials

All Brentwood Cellular Drift Eliminators are made from PVC material that meets Cooling Technology Institute Standard 136 and are UV-protected. These PVC compounds have outstanding resistance to weather exposure and are nearly impervious to chemical degradation by alkalis, acids, greases, fats, oils, and biological attacks. PVC has an excellent fire rating due to its self-extinguishing characteristics with a flame-spread rating of 25 per ASTM E84.

Product description

XF80MAx Crossflow Cellular Drift Eliminators provide the best available drift removal efficiency on the market today. The upward flow path, steep water drainage angle, and tuned venturi section make this the ideal product for factory-built crossflow towers. The modules are constructed of a series of sinusoidal-shaped, corrugated PVC sheets that are mechanically assembled to mating sinusoidal structural waves, forming closed cells. These cells force the drift droplets being carried in the leaving airstream to make three distinct changes in direction. These forced changes to the air flow create centrifugal forces on the droplets that remove them from the air stream by causing them to impact the module walls, collect, and drain back to the wet section of the cooling tower.
