Field-erected Mechanical Draft Cooling Towers are truly impressive because of their compact structure. They are equipped with forced-draft or induced-draft fans and are the solution of choice for industrial applications such as power plants, chemical and petrochemical facilities, steel mills, lumber and paper mills, and air conditioning facilities – for any levels of cooling-water flow and heat capacity.
The use of Mechanical Draft Cooling Towers allows flexible design to satisfy process requirements and environmental conditions. The Mechanical Draft Cooling Tower design furthermore guarantees great flexibility. For example, individual cells can be serviced and, if necessary, drained while the system is in operation.
We design, manufacture and install a complete range of cooling towers based on crossflow and counter flow. Our innovative systems enable us to supply capacity as required. Our extensive product know-how provides solutions for practically all requirements. As a manufacturer with our own engineering department, we can address specific client wishes where necessary. Overall erection and investment costs are low. The tailored design of Mechanical Draft Cooling Towers allows a high degree of prefabrication, as well as rapid erection.
An additional aspect is material diversity. According to requirements, our Mechanical Draft Cooling Towers can be manufactured from a wide range of materials that have proved their effectiveness in countless applications. This spectrum extends from stainless steel and concrete to timber and fiberglass.
The charging of the system with fills is also highly flexible. Whereas we recommend the free flow system for extensively dirty media, we can employ correspondingly more efficient fills with cleaner media.
The induced draft cooling tower generally offers the most effective and economical solution to most of cooling needs. Tipo Heat Exchangers has supplied numerous IDCT worldwide for all power and industry applications and all environmental conditions. The IDCT offers the following advantages:
1. flexibility
2. cost effectiveness
3. air flow almost constant regardless ambient air temperature
4. adapted to any water flow
5. flexible operation by shutting some cells
6. adapted to severe thermal performance
7. all types of structure – wood, FRP, concrete, steel
8. all types of heat exchange surfaces from splash grids to high performance film
