Three versions of the Gentoo are available, with cooling duty of 1000, 1600, and 2500 kW, which are 100 % standardized. These mechanical-draft cooling towers are well equipped and efficient, and yet are cost effective. The cooling fill elements – developed in the Dutch city of Doetinchem, especially for counterflow evaporative coolers – assure highly efficient heat exchange between air and water. The tower enclosure and water collection basins are made of long-life, corrosion-resistant GRP, and the fan cowling consists of hot-dip galvanized steel. Axial fans, installed as standard features, enable quiet, cost-effective cooling and shorten the preliminary run time. The Polacel Gentoo units can be transported without difficulty in containers or on delivery trucks. These cost-effective cooling towers are especially effective for industrial applications in the moderate temperature zones of Europe and the Middle East. They are available with a number of freely selectable equipment options.

In addition to standard cooling towers, the GEA Heat Exchangers portfolio also includes customized GRP cooling towers with crossflow or counterflow, as package solutions. The cooling towers can be equipped with various cooling-tower fill packs, depending on individual applications. The options here include film or trickle fill for liquids with a large share of solid particles.
