Compared to evaporative fluid coolers, we keep you cool for less!
When it comes to cooling, you must reduce the heat output as much as possible. Larger and more energy-intensive processes require more cooling power. One alternative method is to use an evaporative fluid cooler or closed-circuit cooling tower. Closed-circuit and open circuit cooling towers both extract waste heat to the environment but have different methods to accomplish this. Some processes may require the fluid needing to be cooled to be protected in a closed circuit. Water availability and cost also factor into the decision of what type of cooling to use. However, an open circuit cooling tower can provide more flexibility at a much low purchase, installed, and operational cost. A heat exchanger can be installed with an open circuit cooling tower to provide similar benefits to a closed-circuit cooling tower but at a much lower price.
At Tower Tech, we have 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 tiny 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 the amount of water will continue to decrease over time 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 lowered 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 requires an enormous amount of electricity to power. Over time, this cost adds up without much you can to due to lower it. We built our design for efficiency, and we came up with several improvements to lower energy costs. Because the entire unit is smaller, fans do not need to use as much energy. That, along with other design components, helps 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 continually 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 variable. Along with warmth and moisture, bacteria also need sunlight. Our water basins are entirely enclosed, giving no opportunity for algae to grow and nearly eliminating the threat of Legionella as well.
