In applications from chemical processing to plastics to food processing, heavy-duty industrial cooling towers provide effective cooling.
Fiberglass Cooling Tower Ships Fully Assembled
Series FC is designed for outdoor use in industrial manufacturing locations and includes a 10-year warranty on the shell and a five-year warranty on the motor. The 100 to 240 ton tower ships assembled with the fan motor and fan blade removed to prevent shipping damage. Constructed of corrosion-resistant materials, the tower has a fiberglass tower casing and basin, reinforced fiberglass internal structural supports and stainless steel fan support and fasteners. The stainless steel fan guard provides protection from debris entering fan assembly, and the fill, drift eliminators, louvers and water distribution system are constructed of PVC.

Cooling Tower with Copper, Stainless Steel or HDG Steel Coils
Model MH is offered with three coil materials to suit the needs of the application. Model MH Element is equipped with copper coils, which provide corrosion resistance and improved heat transfer. The fluid coolers also are available with coils of either HDG steel or stainless steel. The company also offers a hybrid system that combines the functionality of a cooling tower and a heat exchanger and utilizes a combination of evaporative fill media and prime surface coils.

Large-Module Cooling Tower for Industrial Processes
AT Atlas counterflow cooling towers are designed in large, preassembled modules for ease of rigging and installation. The cooling towers range in capacity from 1,484 to 2,386 nominal tons per cell, providing up to 60 percent more cooling capacity per cell, while requiring up to 40 percent less fan power per ton of cooling compared to traditional factory assembled cooling towers, says the manufacturer. Available in Type 304 or Type 316 stainless steel – including the entire basin, support structure, vertical columns, louver frames and plenum.

Fan System for Cooling in Mission-Critical Environments
Enduradrive has permanent-magnet, direct-drive technology, in which the fan motor is directly coupled to the fan. The design of the fan system eliminates the need for intermediary moving parts like gears or belts, says the manufacturer. The design is engineered so that the motor, variable-frequency drive (VFD) and cooling tower work together. Features such as upgraded insulation, a double O-ring, a drive-end seal and an integrated drain reduce the risk and cost of failures due to moisture ingress. The fan system is engineered and CTI certified for extreme duty and to withstand thermal and vibration rigors of cooling tower operation.

Fiberglass Cooling Towers Have UV Protection for Long Service Life
Series FG offer corrosion resistance and energy efficiency. For cooling requirements at 85°F (29.4°C) and above, water consumption may be reduced by 98.5 percent through the use of cooling towers to remove process heat. Features include an induced-draft design, balancing valve and pressure gauge, factory-tuned fan-blade pitch, PVC fill and drift eliminators with UV protection, energy-efficient fan motor, vertical air discharge and a large inspection/access door. The lightweight, noncorrosive fiberglass shell with fiberglass side seams is coated with a UV inhibitor.

Dry Coolers Inc.
Counterflow Cooling Tower Uses Copper Exchanger to Cool Process Water
A counterflow tower with a built-in copper tube heat exchanger for cooling process water, the MW Series has 0.625" heavy-wall copper tubes for heat transfer and corrosion resistance. Clean process fluid circulates from the facility through the copper-tube heat exchanger inside the cooling tower. Fans on top of the tower draw air through louvers on the side of the tower. The air passes upward through the fill material over the copper-tube heat exchanger. Cool water from the tower’s stainless-steel basin is pumped over the heat exchanger tubes. As the water exchanges heat with the air, a small amount of water evaporates, aiding the fluid cooling process. The cooling tower fans turn on and off as needed to regulate the water temperature.

Global Treat Inc.
Chemical Dilution Trough for Cooling Towers
Over time, acid feed systems will likely cause long-term damaging effects to cooling tower basins and equipment if chemicals are not mixed properly. Designed for use with water treatment chemicals like chlorine, corrosion inhibitors and cooling tower dispersants used in cooling towers, the gravity-flow chemical dilution trough is designed to dilute chemicals before they enter the cooling tower water basin. The Acid Eddy is offered in three sizes: Mega, which is recommended for higher flow chemical applications of up to 750 gal/day; Macro, which is for chemical flow of up to 500 gal/day; and Micro, which is for chemical flow applications of 250 gal/day or less.

Air Solution Co.
Cottonwood Filter Screens for Cooling Towers, Air Cooled Chillers
Cottonwood filter screens eliminate clogging of fill and strainers as well as sludge buildup in cooling towers. Less contamination means facilities can avoid cleaning solvents and power washing of chiller or condenser coils. Facilities can save annually in energy, downtime, lost productivity and maintenance costs. Compatible with all mechanical equipment brands, the air-intake filter screens are offered in 10 styles. From small condenser and chiller coils to large cooling towers and intake openings that require fast setup or take down, air-intake filtration systems can protect valuable equipment from airborne debris.
