Selecting a cooling tower
The water temperatures (hot water in and cold water out), the wet bulb temperature of the site of installation, the required water flow and the noise level are the 4 major factors in order to select a wet cooling tower. After analyzing your needs, we will propose the most appropriate technical and economic solution.There are Polacel CMDR standard solutions for every need starting from a water flow to cool of 90 m3/h. Our engineers can also make special adaptations of the standard cooling towers in order to meet the most specific of your needs.The various type of available heat exchange surfaces allows us to select a suitable fill whether of the "film" type or of the "splash" type . The heat exchange fill is chosen according to the quality of water to be cooled (clean or highly polluted water), but also depending on the specific environment of the site and considering to the process to be cooled. In all cases, a chemical treatment of the cooling water is required. This shall be implemented by a specialized company based on the maximum concentration values advocated by Kelvion.
Polacel CMDR = thermal performance certified by CTI STD-201
The thermal performance of Polacel CMDR cooling towers from Kelvion B.V. are certified according to the CTI STD-201 standard (Cooling Technology Institute). The list of certified models is available: http://www.cti.org/towers/Polacel-CF.pdfThis certification is the assurance for our customers to have a cooling tower that cools the water at the required temperature. It eliminates costly in-situ performance tests.The Polacel CMDR cooling towers are equipped with axial fans driven by geared motors. The geared motors being usually controlled by variable speed drives, the Polacel CMDR cooling towers thus contribute to the reduction of operational costs (OPEX) of the tower and therefore of your entire installation.
