Our expert team will make sure your cooling tower sizing is done right
If you have a business that expends a large amount of heat, you probably already know that you need a cooling tower. Cooling towers are the easiest and most efficient way to reduce the heat from strenuous industrial processes and are essential for many kinds of industry. But do you know the right size tower for your job?
A tower that is too small won’t be able to keep up with the heat output and will be overworked or even fail prematurely. Conversely, a tower that is too large will handle the job well, but you’ll pay for that unneeded extra power with a greatly increased energy bill. In order to get the perfect match for your needs, at Tower Tech our specialists will go over cooling tower sizing options to see you have the ideal tower.
What are your cooling tower size ranges?
We have several different sizing options depending on your available space and cooling requirements. Our smallest tower weighs in at 4360 pounds when empty and 9470 pounds at operating, and our largest is 19,700 pounds empty and 35,156 pounds at operating. For detailed information on weights and dimensions, give us a call or see our brochure.
Our new design revolutionized the cooling tower industry
While conventional water cooling towers did well with the actual cooling and heat reduction, it brought along several new side effects in the process. Traditional towers are inefficient, often carry harmful bacteria such as Legionella, and are larger and bulkier with no additional power output.
In order to reduce these issues, at Tower Tech we created a brand new design with efficiency in mind. Many of these major obstacles were greatly lessened or even eliminated entirely.
Our design improvement benefits
With our new cooling tower design, we were able to make many improvements, including:
- Greater efficiency. Less electricity is required to run our smaller units, but cooling power is not sacrificed in the process. This means the same amount of cooling but a much lower amount when it comes to utility bills.
- Improved safety. Algae and bacteria do more than make your water look bad. Legionella, the bacteria responsible for Legionnaire’s Disease, is particularly common around cooling towers. By designing a completely enclosed basin, these bacteria have no access to sunlight and have extreme difficulty growing and reproducing.
- Better aesthetics. Along with better performance, our towers blend in better with your buildings as well. With no open louvers and a reduced plume size, our cooling towers not only work well, but they also look good doing it!
How much will I save specifically?
Your savings will depend on various factors and variables that are unique to your situation. In order to be as accurate as possible, we use software called PACE which creates a Performance and Competitive Evaluation report. The software takes these variables into account and then compares the cost of our towers to the competition. The report includes items such as pump energy, water usage, fan energy, and life-cycle operating costs so you can know ahead of time what to expect.
