SPX Cooling Technologies, Inc. introduced the Marley® CP fiberglass, induced draft, counterflow cooling tower, designed for space- and sound-sensitive applications. The CP tower features a stainless steel structure and fiberglass reinforced polyester (FRP) casing, which the company says provides a strong, corrosion-resistant assembly. The Marley CP cooling tower is factory-assembled or ships in modules.

The tower has a wide range of heat transfer fill media available to accommodate clean to very dirty water applications. Designed for industrial markets, the tower can withstand water temperatures up to 176ºF (80ºC). The Marley CP tower provides a capacity bridge between factory-assembled towers and larger, field-erected towers.

All models feature an integral gear drive system and are available with low-sound fan options. Triple-pass honeycomb air inlet louvers minimize freezing risk and reduce water loss from splash. Towers can be installed in a concrete basin or an FRP basin can be provided. According to the company, the counterflow design offers easy access to the collection basin from all sides. Multi-cell towers can be installed in-line or in a variety of back-to-back configurations.
