Baltimore Aircoil Company (BAC) highlights the TriArmor® Corrosion Protection System which provides the best corrosion and leak protection for the cold-water basin at the best value.
The TriArmor® System offers three layers of protection, starting with G-235 Galvanized Steel, the heaviest commercially available galvanized steel. Universally recognized for its strength and durability, it offers excellent service life under normal operating conditions, with proper maintenance and water treatment. The second layer is a Thermosetting Hybrid Polymer baked onto the galvanized steel to create a durable barrier. This polymerized coating has been tested to withstand 6,000 hours in a 5% salt spray without blistering, chipping, or losing adhesion. The third layer, a Polyurethane Barrier, is a factory-applied, corrosion-resistant, impermeable coating that ensures a seamless basin. To help ensure leak-free longevity, microscopic chains of rubber-like resin molecules permanently bond tightly with one another and the thermosetting hybrid polymer. These three layers of protection form a bond for the ultimate in corrosion resistance and leak protection.
Protection of the cold-water basin is the easiest way to extend the life of evaporative cooling equipment. As long as the basin is in good condition, nearly every other part of the equipment can be repaired or replaced.
