T he single most important component of a cooling tower is the fill. The efficiency of a cooling tower depends upon the fill’s ability to promote both the maximum contact surface, and the maximum contact time between air and water. And it must promote this air-water contact while imposing the least possible restriction to air flow.
MX75 is a hanging film type cooling tower fill which spreads the water into a thin film, flowing over large vertical surfaces, promoting maximum exposure to air flow. This type of fill provides much more water surface exposure per cubic foot than splash type fill. Film fill offers greater cooling efficiency, so you can get colder water from your present splash-fill cooling tower without increasing fan horsepower.
Or, if you choose, you can apply this improved efficiency to save horsepower producing the same cold water temperature. MX75 incorporates highly efficient cellular drift eliminators, integrally molded within the fill sheets. Compared with previous designs, these eliminators reduce drift emissions from the tower by a factor of ten or more! Less drift means you save on your water bills and water treatment chemical expenses. And, you’ll virtually eliminate the nuisance caused by drift spotting on adjacent buildings and property. To save you even more, the drift eliminators discharge air directly toward the fan. Since the air is traveling in the right direction when it leaves the eliminators, you’ll save on fan horsepower.
Louvers are also integrally molded within the fill sheets preventing water from escaping and assuring precise air distribution throughout wide variations in airflow. Unlike towers equipped with separate external louvers, this fill operates virtually ice-free even in extremely cold weather. MX75 is thermoformed from PVC with a flame spread rating less than 25 per ASTM E-84 and is considered self-extinguishing. Therefore, your risk of fire damage is minimal. You’ll enjoy long service life with minimal maintenance because MX75 fill won’t rot, is impervious to corrosion and decay, and its wide sheet spacing prevents clogging. Since MX75 has integral louvers and drift eliminators, extra support framing and retainers are not required. MX75 fill is available in air travels from 18″to 54″and can be installed in almost all cross flow cooling towers regardless of a cooling tower’s age or manufacturer.
