one logan philadelphia
Built in 1983, One Logan Square is a 32-story office tower in Center City Philadelphia. The building was recently renovated, and the last remaining need was replacement of the original cooling tower. The team decided to replace the three-cell cooling tower to improve efficiency and optimize the building’s systems. However, the real challenge on this job was the restrictive layout, coupled with the fact that there was no way to get a crane to pull the existing units out and install the new ones. Piece by piece this tower was hauled up to the top of a Philadelphia skyscraper. Our CTI Certified

piping-basics
Understanding the basics of piping and controls is step number one in the cooling tower industry. But how effectively a cooling tower piping system is designed and installed can have a critical impact on system efficiency, functionality and even safety. Properly engineered condenser, chiller and cooling tower piping and controls will improve heat transfer and avoid problems such as air slugging and pumps losing prime. Check out this oldie but goodie article EVAPCO wrote on the subject for Processing Cooling.

New England BioLab eco-atwb-h
The EVAPCO New England BioLabs case study recently was published in HVAC & Plumbing Product News. With the work that New England BioLabs performs, it was of great importance to find the right equipment to meet the company's specific requirements. AHA Consulting Engineers, Inc.considered several fluid cooler options. The amount of electricity and water used was a key factor in specifying the cooling system. Ultimately, EVAPCO’s eco-ATWB-H series hybrid fluid cooler was selected. The system is specifically designed to optimize both the evaporative (latent) and dry (sensible) modes of cooling
wetland-award
Recently, EVAPCO accepted an award for a wetland project initiated with the Iowa Soil and Water conservation. EVAPCO agreed to allow a bio-retention pond to be on EVAPCO property to slow down the water runoff into the lake. Because of the farming community the phosphorous and nitrates create havoc in the lake because those are essential nutrients for plant (algae) growth that negatively effects the marine and leisure on the nearby lake. EVAPCO is committed to helping protect the environment. Check out this graphic on how retention ponds work.

High Efficiency Cooling Tower on Wheels EVAPCO’s new eco-Air demo trailer has begun a voyage across the USA, beginning in sunny Los Angeles. The traveling, working demo unit was designed to give building owners, manufacturer’s reps, mechanical contractors and others a look at the operation and efficiency of the coolers. On one side, the demonstration unit features an adiabatic cooler; on the other, NEMA fan motor/EC fan motors, and eco-Air control panel with automated PLC for BAS Integration. The unit also has a piped water distribution system for adiabatic pads and nitrogen-charged stainless
Philly case study
The Ben Franklin Building in Philadelphia stands as a famous historical building. Also called The Franklin Residences, it offers luxury apartments and short-term rental suites. Keeping it running in top shape is a priority for the current owners, Korman Communities. Luxury cooling Keeping tenants and guests comfortable during warm, humid summers takes the right systems working with minimal or no downtime. The cooling tower serves as a water-sourced heat pump loop in the building. For years, it served most of the building’s cooling needs. “Some equipment loses efficiency as it gets older,”
awt-webinar
EVAPCO marketing engineers, Brett Alexander, Troy Reinick and Mihir Kalyani, provided young professionals from the Association of Water Technologies a better understanding of the difference between open cooling towers, closed circuit coolers, evaporative condensers, hybrid systems, adiabatic coolers and dry coolers during a webinar last week. The session discussed how equipment design and materials of construction might impact the selection and implementation of water treatment programs. The webinar also provided information related to commissioning new systems and surveying existing ones
