Isolate your tower water from your process to minimize maintenence on molds and heat exchangers.

Recently, a Utah medical molder was expanding their operation, and installed what is termed a Closed Loop Water Tower system. Realizing that tower water can contaminate heat

exchangers and molds without careful and overly expensive treatment, it was desirable to isolate the water that runs through the tower from the machinery and equipment in the plant. Outdoor space for the tower stand was also an issue due to the location of the facility and the desire to maximize the available property square footage.

Advantage Engineering provided a Closed Loop Tower Cell solution. This type of system is designed to separate the tower water from the process water, protecting the processing machinery and equipment.

  • The tower was installed on the roof, directly above the tank so that it could drain directly down into the tank.
  • Plate and frame heat exchangers were used for separating the tower and process sides because of the efficient heat transfer characteristics of this type of heat exchanger.
