Cooling Tower Sizing

Cooling towers are the easiest and most efficient way to reduce the heat from strenuous industrial processes and are essential for many industries. But do you know the correct size tower for your job? Too small, and it will be overworked. Too large, and you'll see unnecessarily high energy bills. Tower Tech's experts can help you find the perfect match for your needs.

TT-FleetCard-towersTower Tech Cooling Tower Size Ranges

We have several different sizing options to fit many different available space and cooling requirements.

Tower Tech offers individual cooling tower ranges:

  • 1-Fan 100 ton
  • 2-Fan 200-Ton
  • 3-Fan 300 Ton
  • 4-Fan 400 Ton
  • 5-Fan 500 Ton
  • 6-Fan 600 Ton
  • 8-Fan 800 Ton
  • 10-Fan 1,000 Ton
  • 12-Fan 1,200 Ton

Any of Tower Tech's individual modular towers can be connected to accomplish any heat load requirement. Tower Tech has thousands of installations worldwide, from single 1-Fan units to an installation with 60 units of our 10-Fan tower. There's almost no configuration we haven't seen!

Our smallest tower weighs 3,450 pounds when empty and has a 6,090-pound operational weight. Our largest tower is 19,700 pounds when empty and has a 35,156-pound operational weight. Detailed information on weights and dimensions if available in our brochure.

Tower Tech's Design Revolution

While conventional water cooling towers did well with the actual cooling and heat reduction, they are inefficient, often carry harmful bacteria such as Legionella and are bulky with no additional power output.

At Tower Tech, we created a brand-new design with efficiency in mind to reduce these issues, including:

    Our smaller units use less electricity to operate without sacrificing cooling power in the process. This means the same amount of cooling but a much lower amount when it comes to utility bills.

    Algae and bacteria do more than make your water look bad. Legionella, the bacteria responsible for Legionnaire’s Disease, is particularly common in and around cooling towers. By designing our completely enclosed Flow-Thru Basin™, we eliminated sunlight access, cutting bacteria and algae off from their growth source.

    Along with better performance, our towers blend in better to their architectural surroundings. With no open louvers and a reduced plume size, our cooling towers not only work well, but they also look good doing it.

Significant Savings

Every owner's savings will depend on various factors unique to their situation. But one thing is always true: Initial purchase price is only a fraction of the full life cycle cost of a cooling tower. As a general rule, the cost of owning and operating any cooling tower over a 25-year life is often 10-12 times the initial cost of the equipment. A $200,000 cooling tower, for example, is likely to cost more than $2 million to operate over its lifetime. These costs come from the resources a tower uses – water, chemicals, energy, maintenance, parts and so on. Buying only on initial cost can really cost you! A cheaper tower to purchase may cost a lot more over its life cycle.

Tower Tech modular cooling towers are top-of-the-line because of their excellent operational cost savings. While the initial purchase may be more than a competing tower, the lifecycle costs are significantly lower. To be as accurate as possible, we have a proprietary software program that creates a Performance and Competitive Evaluation (PACE). The software takes many variables into account and then compares the cost of our towers to conventional cooling towers. The report allows you to evaluate the five consumption cost areas of cooling tower operation: Fan Energy, Pump Energy, Water Purchase Cost, Water Disposal Cost and Water Treatment Cost. The PACE provides a direct comparison of most conventional cooling towers against the operational savings offered by Tower Tech, including a payback analysis of your capital expenditure for the project.

Best-in-Class ROI

A Tower Tech cooling tower quickly pays for itself by saving valuable resources thanks to its unique advantages and can outlast most conventional towers.
