Thermal~Flow Cooling Towers
Thermal~Flow Evaporative Condensers and Closed Circuit Cooling Towers
Thermal~Flow's innovative Evaporative
Condenser (TFEC) and our Closed Circuit Cooling Tower (TFCCT)
use advanced coil technology
which reduces the tendency to accumulate scale
on the coil surface. Scale is the build-up
of solids, often calcium and magnesium compounds,
resulting from the evaporation of water directly on the
condenser tube bundle within the unit.
By reducing scale tendency, peak heat transfer capability is
sustained over the life of the equipment and coil
longevity is maximize. Thermal~Flow Cooling Towers save customers time, money
and energy during the installation, operation and

Thermal~Flow has combined it's superior TFEC Evaporative Condenser
with the newest Scroll compressor technology, and the most efficient
fans, pumps, and heat exchangers available to produce it's
Ultra-Efficient HVAC Multi-Stage Packaged Chillers, Demand-Buster 50-Ton 4-Pipe HVAC, and our Residential Water Cooled Air Conditioner Systems.
The Thermal~Flow Closed Circuit Cooling Tower is the heart of the Demand-Buster HVAC Retrofit System,
Hybrid Geothermal Systems, and Water Cooled Commercial Chillers. They
are also perfectly suited to many waste heat applications that call for
high efficiency fluid coolers.
The four unique design features of Thermal~Flow's Cooling Tower with advanced coil
technology contribute to the reduced propensity
to scale, and lower energy consumption:
1. Low Velocity Updraft Air Flow: Improved
water coverage around the tubes is due to lower air flow
in an updraft path over the evaporative condenser coil,
maintaining full tube coverage. With lower air flow,
velocity the spray water is not stripped from the
underside of the tubes by the airflow; thus
eliminating scale-promoting dry spots.
2. Increased Water Flow Over Coil: The over-lapping
coverage of the non fouling spray nozels along with a water flow rate
over the coil area that is more than a conventional
evaporative condenser is unique to the TFEC.
This provides continuous flooding of the primary heat transfer surface for
decreased scaling potential.
3. Evaporative Cooling Occurs Primarily in Evaporative Media:
The TFEC Evaporative Condenser incorporates
advanced technology using both primary and secondary heat transfer surfaces.
The primary heat transfer surface, the serpentine
evaporative condenser coil, is the most important as well as
the most expensive component in the evaporative
condenser. The coil of the TFEC is protected from
detrimental scale since it relies primarily on
sensible heat transfer and therefore is less susceptible
to scale formation than are other designs that rely
primarily on latent (evaporative) heat transfer.
The technology behind the secondary heat
transfer surface, the PVC wet media, has been

resistant and durable for more than
30 years in cooling tower applications. More than
80% of the latent heat transfer occurs in the
secondary surface, moving the evaporation away
from the primary heat transfer surface.
4. Colder Spray Water: Spray water at colder
temperatures has a lower propensity to form scale
because scaling compounds remain in solution rather
than depositing as solids on the evaporative condenser coil. In the TFEC the
spray water over the coil is colder than other evaporative condenser designs due to the
addition of the secondary heat transfer surface. The
colder spray water alone reduces the scaling
potential by 25% compared to other
designs.This is above and beyond the reduction
achieved by Thermal~Flow's our other three unique design features
