Products: Cooling Towers
Counter Flow Cooling Towers
Manufactured By:

RSD Fiberglass Cooling Towers

1) Motors:
All motors are UL recognized, TEFC or TEAO construction. Due to superior tower design, motor H.P. and energy consumption are significantly less than that of traditional tower designs.

2) Fan Blades: Axial flow fan blades have been specifically designed for cooling tower applications, providing a large volume of stable air at constant pressure.

3) Tower Fill: Our honeycombed PVC fill is designed to promote turbulent waterflow for maximum heat transfer. The heat embossed construction will prevent loss of shape due to the high inlet water temperature.

4) Fluid Connections: All fluid connections are located on a common bulkhead for easy access. All fittings are American standard for easy installation. Our unique makeup valve assembly is designed to meet all plumbing code requirements.

 

5) Water Basin: Our tapered basin design ensures a steady flow of water to the system pump, even at low water levels. With 360 degree access, routine cleaning is a breeze.

6) Inlet Louvers: Non-corrosive PVC louvers prevent debris from entering the tower basin. All towers RSD 040 and above come standard with our premium louvers that eliminate splash from the tower basin.

7) Water Distribution System: The water distribution system is constructed of 100% non-corrosive materials. The rotating sprinkler assembly ensures low velocity waterflow and excellent distribution over the fill deck. The assembly is field adjustable for your specific system flow requirements.

8) Tower Shell: The tower shell is constructed of F.R.P (fiberglass reinforced polyester), making it extremely lightweight, durable and non-corrosive. The tower shell is a cylindrical bottle shaped design which minimizes internal pressure drop. This design virtually eliminates ineffective space in the cooling layers, thus providing excellent cooling efficiency and economizing space.

Additional Information:
 

Ladders:

All towers RSD-100 and above are equipped with an OSHA standard ladder for safety and convenience.

Support Components:

Motor brackers and fill support components are constructed of non-corrosive or hot dipped galvanized material. We utilize exclusively stainless steel fastener to ensure long life and to ease in disassembly during maintenance and repair operations.

Stainless Steel Options:

All steel or aluminum components (except fan blades) are available in stainless steel.

Agency Approvals:

Electrical Testing Laboratory (ETL) approved under U.L. 503; City of Los Angeles Mechanical Testing Laboratory approved. Fan Motors are U.L. Recognized TEFC or TEAO Construction.

Welding Tip Coolers 84/min(avg.) 1 10
Dry Cleaning Machines 5,000 btu/lb cap. 3 gpm/ton 10.00

Whenever possible calculate actual values as follows:

Load in btu/hr = (range x gpm) x 500
Cooling Range = (btu load/gpm)/500
GPM = (btu load/range)/500
Cooling Range = (inlet to tower - desired outlet)

bhp = Brakehorse power
gpm = Gallons per minute
500 = 8.33lb/gal x 60 minutes
1 ton = 15,000 btu/hr
