Timber Cooling Towers
TIMBER COOLING TOWERS OVERVIEW:
Tipo Heat Exchangers offers a wide range of timber structure cooling towers both in cross-flow and counter-flow patterns with splash and film fill.
SALIENT FEATURES OF TIMBER COOLING TOWERS:
Unique structural design to give a rigid and stable structure.
Chemically treated timber as per IS 401 for durability.
Optimal selection of tower configuration, fill and drift eliminators.
High efficiency fans and mechanical equipment.
Low initial cost and short delivery periods.
Various material options including FRP cladding and hardware in various grades of stainless steel.
Timber Cooling Towers manufactured by are highly durable and can withstand corrosive atmospheric condition. A tower is designed for high water flow-rates beginning from 50 M3/Hr and above.This type of cooling tower is generally used in Power Plants, Fertilizer Plants, Sugar Plants, Ferro-Alloy plants, cement plants etc.
TIMBER COOLING TOWERS FEATURES:
Induced Draft Counter Flow: In a counter flow cooling tower the air moves vertically upwards through the fill while waterfalls vertically downwards. Film type fill is used and is suitable for all cooling load applications, however, it is more suitable for the application where cold water temperature is critical and water quality is good. The structure of the cooling towers is made of Treated Timber. Film type fill is made of PVC for normal water applications. These cooling towers are fitted with the fills of wider flute so that it can withstand most of the industrial water. The film type fill should be avoided for the applications where water has traces of oil and contaminated water. In the case of contaminated water PVC “V” bars and grid can be used. Cooling towers are fitted with high efficiency mechanicals such as axial flow fans, gear boxes and drive shafts.
Induced Draft Cross Flow In a cross-flow cooling tower air moves through the fill horizontally and waterfalls vertically. The fill used is splash type fill and is suitable for cooling all load applications; however, it is more suitable for the application where water has higher suspended solids which can be a problem for film fill cooling tower operation. These cooling towers are made of RCC. For high temperature applications the splash fill is made of chemically treated timber whereas for normal temperature applications it is made of PVC. It can be of rectangular or “V” bar shape. The fill is supported on a SS-304 grid. Cooling towers are fitted with high efficiency mechanical parts such as axial flow fans, gear boxes and drive shafts.
