At the annual AHR Expo in Chicago, Illinois, Tower Tech introduced a new Split Cell cooling tower. The innovative Split Cell design enables any modular size cooling tower to be utilized at a reduced cooling load using simple motor controls. The Split Cell tower eliminates the conventional multiple tower installation that was required to accommodate summer and winter loads by isolating cells to maintain the minimum thermal requirements to operate in freezing conditions.
Tower Tech’s Split Cell design is available in all models and sizes, providing a smaller footprint, easier maintenance, and savings through a reduction in purchase and installation cost. The Split Cell design meets the latest industry standards of ASHRAE Standard 90.1 for water-side and air-side economizers. Tower Tech provides an energy efficient solution to Free Cooling.
Equipping the tower with a Motorized Bray Valve, an actuating motor, and an isolation wall will allow the modular cooling tower to operate in cold weather conditions without requiring manual shutdown or isolation of cooling tower cells. The Split Cell design functions with stand-alone controls provided by Tower Tech or in connection with the building management system for remote monitoring and operation. Tower Tech developed the Spilt Cell design for easy retrofitting of most operational Tower Tech towers currently in use.
The new Split Cell design is a part of Tower Tech’s ongoing commitment, as the industry leader, to providing sustainable efficiency.
