Packaged Cooling Towers
FM Cooling Tower Range
The FM range of cooling towers is a range of multi-fanned factory assembled cooling towers manufactured in a robust, durable and compact glass reinforced polyester casing.
This range of cooling towers provides high cooling capacity units that are easily transported, installed and maintained.
The casing is available with or without a water basin. The FM design consists of a 3CR12 or stainless steel frame (either 304 or 316 stainless steel), the casing consists of glass reinforced polyester side sheets and glass reinforced polyester fan casings.
The readily accessible cooling tower fan deck is provided with a non-slip surface and a safety handrail. Access to this deck is by means of cat ladder or staircase (by request). All fasteners are made from stainless steel. The standard colour is grey however other RAL colours are available on request.
Axial ventilation fan
Each unit has multiple direct driven fans. The aerodynamically optimised blades are made of polyamide or aluminium, and are adjustable when stationary. A protective grille covers the fan.
Profiled plastic elements (PVC, Polypropylene or ABS) prevent water droplets from being carried out of the cooling tower by the air flow.
Water distribution system
Self-cleaning, full-cone plastic nozzles are attached onto the water distribution pipes. These ensure a uniform distribution which is key to the performance of the cooling tower.
Various cooling tower fills are available and are selected to best suit the process conditions (both temperature and water quality), fill materials are generally either made of PVC or polypropylene but other materials to suit higher temperature applications are also available.
The cooling components are carefully selected to ensure that there is minimal corrosion and no degradation (rotting).
The air inlet louvres are made of plastic (PVC or Polypropylene) or stainless steel depending on customer preference, and prevent water from splashing out. These are easily removed for inspection and cleaning purposes.
