Tower Tech USA Announces Hurricane-Rated Cooling Tower

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, October 2, 2020 – Tower Tech, a leading cooling tower manufacturer, is excited to announce its highest-rated hurricane cooling tower. Tower Tech is the only cooling tower manufacturer in the industry to achieve a 200mph wind load certification. Cooling towers are critical to the HVAC systems and industrial operations of buildings and plants. High winds ensuing from hurricanes can cause extensive damage or even collapse to conventional cooling towers. 

“The United States is experiencing the most active hurricane season in history, and we feel it is critical to provide our customers with the strongest rated cooling tower built in the industry,” stated President, Mathu Solo. “With more than 5,000 modular towers installed worldwide, we know that many of them have taken direct hits from the most powerful hurricanes. Our customers have never had to replace a cooling tower damaged by a hurricane, and we have never had to make repairs to a tower due to high wind events.”

Every hurricane season results in millions of dollars in losses directly related to repairing or replacing cooling towers. Companies can face additional millions of dollars in lost revenues due to operating their business without a cooling tower.

We know we have the strongest cooling tower in the world with a 200mph wind load certification. We also meet the highest seismic rating in the IBC code and have California OSHPD pre-approval from shake table testing for critical seismic installations. Our modular design provides fast production times for quick delivery and can easily be installed in less than 30 minutes. Due to the high quality and strength of our tower, an added benefit is reduced maintenance cost and expected operational life for more than 30 years.”

Tower Tech is the leader in modular cooling tower design that has turned the industry upside down by mounting fans on the bottom and introducing more efficient and innovative water-cooling technologies to the market. Our full line of open-circuit and closed-circuit towers lower the total lifetime cost of ownership and combat increased utility costs by saving water and electricity. Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) components are factory-assembled in the USA in our ISO certified facility. FRP is an advanced composite material that is corrosion-resistant and known for low maintenance and longevity. Our FireStrong™ towers are fire-rated for critical installations, and our StormStrong® towers are hurricane, missile impact and seismic-rated to ensure operation in extreme conditions. Tower Tech’s HAVC technology is installed around the world in commercial and industrial markets from data centers, industrial applications and power generation plants to hotels and universities. Tower Tech has led the industry since 1989 with our patented tower technologies that take sustainability and energy efficiency to the next level.
