IWC are the leaders in Industrial Water Cooling in Africa. The company’s vast experience and knowledge in the water cooling industry has resulted in IWC boasting expert services ranging from feasibility studies to the installation of complete plant on a turnkey basis. IWC’s products range from packaged cooling towers, large field erected and mechanical draught cooling towers , industrial water coolers as well as the refurbishment thereof.
IWC offers a range of plate heat exchangers, supplied by SONDEX from Denmark, who are one of the largest manufacturers of plate heat exchangers in the world. IWC’s wide range of plate heat exchangers offers optimal technical solutions for almost any task. Apart from plate heat echangers, the product range includes evaporators, condensors, copper brazed, semi-welded and all welded plate heat exchangers.
IWC’s in-house experts have developed systems to undertake a range of GRP Solutions , including custom industrial GRP fabrications. Services extend to on-site GRP piping repair work as well as corrosion resistant linings. Manufacturing capabilities include design, manufacture, installation and maintenance as well as custom fabrications.
Cutting the Cost of Corrosion with GRP
According to an EPRI (Electric Power Research Institute of the US) study more than half of all unplanned power outages are due to corrosion, which generally corresponds with other studies that half of all failures in industry are corrosion related. Studies in different countries indicate that 25% to 30% of water supply is lost in the supply chain due to leaks resulting from corrosion.
Heat Exchangers Recover and Recycle Excess and Wasted Energy
In copper production, heat generated during extraction processes can be harnessed and transferred back into the system using heat exchangers, resulting in significant energy savings and unparalleled yield.
Refurbishment Extends Cooling Tower Life By 20 Years
An industrial cooling tower’s life expectancy is between 15 and 25 years, yet it is not always necessary to install a completely new system; old cooling towers can be refurbished or upgraded at a fraction of the cost. Refurbishment or upgrades can bring a cooling tower’s components up to original factory specifications, extending the system’s lifespan for another 15 to 20 years.
