IWC has developed an industrial cooling tower specifically designed to handle slurries, zinc solutions as well as highly abrasive and/or corrosive solutions.
These cooling towers are designed with ease of maintenance in mind and have forced draft fans, removable spray lances (accessible from an external walkway) and are fill-less making them ideally suited for applications where fouling of the internals would normally be a major operational concern.
Drift eliminators are assembled into easily removable pads and can be provided with an automatic CIP (Cleaning In Place) system. Drift losses had been minimized and drift losses can be reduced to as low as 0,0002% of the re-circulating solution flow rate.
The draft cooling tower is typically octagonal in shape and consists of a number of field assembled, dual composite GRP panels, complete with an integral basin (rubber lined stainless steel) which is designed to be non-clogging.
Solution temperatures of up to 80° can be accommodated.
The structural panels have integral polypropylene liners with the structural laminate produced from a high quality vinyl ester resin; a conductive carbon tissue is included as a corrosion barrier, as well as to allow for spark testing of the internal polypropylene panel seal welds.
