The new combined spray + adiabatic system


EMERITUS® is the latest innovation developed for the dry cooler, condenser and CO2 gas cooler families from LU-VE Exchangers.

Available for: HFC, NH3, Propane, CO2

The operating principle of Emeritus®

This new technological advance (patent pending) is the result of collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Milan and brings together the benefits of spray systems and adiabatic pre-cooling, all assisted by an advanced control system.


The specific features of this product make it especially suitable for use in air conditioning and refrigeration. When EMERITUS® is applied to CO2 gas coolers, high system COP can be reached even during the hottest hours of the year, extending the geographical limits where trans-critical systems can be cost-effectively constructed (the “CO2 equator”).

combined spray + adiabatic system
The finned pack is made of a new magnesium-aluminium alloy with a special surface treatment (ALUPLUS®) which guarantees high protection against corrosion

Intelligent control system

with innovative, user-friendly functions. In addition to controlling electronic fans (EC), its sophisticated software memorizes the total operating hours of each ramp of the spray circuit and each adiabatic panel. Thanks to “logic of rotation", it selects which system should be activated, optimizing the numbers of hours of spray operation.

Reduced water consumption

Using the EMERITUS® dry coolers and condensers as alternatives to traditional condensers and evaporative towers brings significant advantages in terms of water consumption.
