New Marley MD Everest Tower Speeds Site Delivery and Installation for Process Cooling Applications
Overland Park, Kan. – SPX Cooling Technologies, Inc., a full-line, full-service industry leader in the design and manufacture of evaporative and air-cooled heat exchangers, announces the new Marley MD Everest, a modular counterflow cooling tower. The Marley MD Everest Cooling Tower is designed to meet today’s process cooling demands, and is suitable for power generation plants, chemical, oil and gas plants, and other process applications with a wide range of thermal loads.
Whether designing a new plant or replacing an aging traditional site-constructed cooling tower, the MD Everest tower’s pre-configured design offers significant advantages that enable safer assembly processes, including up to 60 percent faster delivery and 80 percent faster installation compared to field-erected cooling towers.
The MD Everest counterflow tower’s robust structure meets seismic and wind load requirements per ASCE and IBC building codes, and withstands the rigors of process cooling applications using heavy-duty, corrosion-resistant materials. Industrial-strength Marley mechanical components include a five-year maintenance-free System 5 Marley Geareducer® gear drive; energy-efficient, low-clog PVC heat exchange fill media; and Motor Outside Airstream (MOA), standard. The MD Everest also includes a five-year mechanical component warranty.
MD Everest cooling tower arrives at the site in modules that are built and assembled in a controlled factory environment, which facilitate high quality and efficient installation. Its thermal performance is pending certification by the Cooling Technology Institute (CTI), eliminating the need and expense for on-site testing.
