SPX Cooling Technologies, Inc. introduced the availability of new patent-pending modular construction techniques for the Marley F400 Cooling Tower. For large-scale HVAC, power and heavy industrial applications, the company says its F400 Cooling Tower is the industry standard counterflow field-erected tower.

The company also claims that choosing modular construction offers several advantages. Factory-assembled modules help to ensure consistent product quality. Less laydown area is required on site for material storage to alleviate congestion and enable other construction activities to proceed. Faster installation results in a reduced construction schedule and less impact from weather-related delays.

Modular components are shipped via flatbed trucks to the jobsite to meet the construction schedule. Lower structural members are grouped into kits at the factory then delivered so limited laydown area is needed. Next, factory-assembled fill modules arrive and are hoisted directly from flatbed onto the cooling tower substructure. The process continues with water distribution system piping assemblies, upper plenum structural components, casing, fan deck, and mechanical components arriving to meet jobsite requirements.

Each F400 tower is configured to meet exact performance, structural, and sound specifications. The Marley F400 Cooling Tower’s counterflow design allows maximum thermal performance capability per unit of plan area and minimizes pump head requirements. It is available with a choice of heat exchange media to satisfy nearly any water quality, said officials.
