Tower Tech, a leading cooling tower manufacturer, is excited to announce its highest-rated hurricane cooling tower. Tower Tech is the only cooling tower manufacturer in the industry to achieve a 200mph wind load certification. Cooling towers are critical to the HVAC systems and industrial operations of buildings and plants. High winds ensuing from hurricanes can cause extensive damage or even collapse to conventional cooling towers.
“The United States is experiencing the most active hurricane season in history, and we feel it is critical to provide our customers with the strongest rated cooling tower built in the industry,” stated President, Mathu Solo. “With more than 5,000 modular towers installed worldwide, we know that many of them have taken direct hits from the most powerful hurricanes. Our customers have never had to replace a cooling tower damaged by a hurricane, and we have never had to make repairs to a tower due to high wind events.”
Every hurricane season results in millions of dollars in losses directly related to repairing or replacing cooling towers. Companies can face additional millions of dollars in lost revenues due to operating their business without a cooling tower.
Director of Sales, Micah Curtis, stated, “Tower Tech knows firsthand the associated cost of repairs, having built the largest fleet of rental cooling towers in the world which are often utilized while damaged cooling towers are repaired or replaced. We know we have the strongest cooling tower in the world with a 200mph wind load certification. We also meet the highest seismic rating in the IBC code and have California OSHPD pre-approval from shake table testing for critical seismic installations. Our modular design provides fast production times for quick delivery and can easily be installed in less than 30 minutes. Due to the high quality and strength of our tower, an added benefit is reduced maintenance cost and expected operational life for more than 30 years.”
