Cooling Towers

Cooling towers across the country are getting fouled and clogged with debris like cottonwood seeds, leaves, pollen, paper debris, industrial waste, nesting birds, construction debris and insects.  Whether the system is being used for industrial process or environmental air handling, thousands of dollars and hours are being wasted on repair downtime and maintenance. Closed loop systems mix air and water, which allows contaminants to transfer to the inline filtration system. As debris is continuously drawn into the air intake of cooling towers, fouling the cooling water and increasing the need for chemicals to clean up sludge build-up, bacteria proliferation and bio-film on internal surfaces which lead to corrosion of the basin walls.  Debris insulates the coils, causing heat build-up, higher discharge pressure and amp draws.  Reduced air flow causes automatic shut-downs, continuous strainer and basin cleaning coils, heat build-up, higher discharge pressure and amp draws.  Reduced air flow causes equipment to run for longer cycle times, at reduced capacity, decreased life expectancy, increased filter changes and escalating power costs.

Proper air filtration will prevent debris from impacting equipment performance.  Permatron air filtration products offer you cost effective solutions.

Dry Coolers

Frequent cleaning is especially hard on this type of unit because it sits on the ground, elevated on 2-1/2' legs, with the high velocity air intake located beneath the unit. Reduced air flow causes equipment to run for longer cycle times, at reduced capacity, decreased life expectancy, increased filter changes and escalating power costs.

Air Filtration Solutions

Failure to provide cost effective air intake protection to building or equipment fans, motors, heat exchangers and other process cooling systems adds up to a costly loss of productivity in safe and effective system operations. This is especially true of refrigeration and cooling application systems where heat transfer surfaces are dramatically impacted by buildup of dirt on the surface.

Air Intake Louvers

Cottonwood seeds, leaves, pollen, paper debris, industrial waste, nesting birds, construction debris and insects are continuously drawn into air intakes costing thousands of dollars and man hours on equipment repair downtime and maintenance. Reduced air flow causes equipment to run for longer cycle times, at reduced capacity, decreased life expectancy, increased filter changes and escalating power costs.
