Cooling tower site inspections, expert advice on fill selection, test data interpretation, proper tower operation, tower sizings and upgrade return on investment

Evaporative cooling towers are a critical element of most industrial and utility cooling systems since they have a significant impact on overall system efficiency. For example, a fouled fill section will reduce a cooling tower's performance by restricting airflow, thus impacting cooling. A poorly maintained or damaged water distribution system will have the same effect. Our services, outlined below, can help optimize your cooling tower's performance and increase plant efficiency or product through-put.

Services Offered:

Existing Cooling Tower Thermal Performance Assessment

With computer modeling, your tower can be analyzed to determine its true cooling potential.

Performance Test Oversight and Evaluation of Results

There are a myriad number of variables that play a role in determining a tower's thermal capability. With our oversight, the most accurate assessment will be assured.

Cooling Tower Thermal Sizing and Rating  

Regardless of type: be it natural, induced or forced draft; counter or cross flow, we can model your existing tower or provide guidance in selecting the most cost-effective new tower for your plant or process.
