Our evaporative fluid coolers keep you cool for less
When it comes to cooling industrial buildings, it’s essential that you reduce heat output as much as possible. Larger and more energy-intensive processes require more cooling power, and the most efficient method is to use an evaporative fluid cooler. Excess heat needs somewhere to go that won’t be harmful, and evaporative fluid coolers take this heat and use its energy to evaporate water.
One of the most common ways this is done is through a water cooling tower. At Tower Tech, we’ve developed a new cooling tower design to increase efficiency to levels previously thought to be unattainable. Our units reduce water waste, lower energy usage, are smaller and less noticeable, and even cost less to operate.
Cooling design that looks good and works better
Conventional cooling towers have numerous problems and for years, they were thought to be an unavoidable part of the industry. With our design, many of these problems are reduced or even outright eliminated.
Water waste and drift rate
Around water cooling towers, there always seems to be a constant mist. This is because small droplets of water exit the tower during the cooling process. For many cooling tower manufacturers, the drift rate is 0.002%, meaning that 0.002% of circulating water becomes drift loss. A higher number means that over time, the amount of water will continue to decrease and will need to be refilled more often.
Our design was able to cut that number down to a fraction of the industry norm. Instead of a 0.002% drift rate, we were able to lower it to .0004%—one-fifth as much as competing manufacturers.
After the upfront cost, water cooling towers are expensive to operate. Large, integrated machinery with powerful components require an enormous amount of electricity to power. Over time, this cost adds up without much you can to due to lower it.
Our design was built for efficiency, and we came up with a number of improvements to lower energy cost. Because the entire unit is smaller, fans don’t need to use as much energy. That, along with other design components, helps to lower your annual energy consumption to as much as 45% less.
Algae and Legionella
Traditional industrial-grade evaporative fluid coolers have large tanks of water that are constantly being injected with heat. This combination of warmth and moistness provides the perfect growth condition for bacteria. Legionella, the bacteria responsible for Legionnaire’s Disease, is found in unusually high amounts around cooling towers.
Deciding that the high correlation of people diagnosed with Legionnaire’s Disease around these towers was unacceptable, we found a way to eliminate one of the variables. Along with warmth and moisture, bacteria also need sunlight. Our water basins are completely enclosed, giving no opportunity for algae to grow and nearly eliminating the threat of Legionella as well.
