CTS been selling the FRP (fiberglass reinforced polyester) cooling tower for the past 63 years into North and South America- to include the severe cold climates of Canada and Alaska. Cold climate does not affect the materials our cooling towers are constructed of, which we have the longest warranty in the industry for.
Instead of using the cold water basin for your processed water, the most preferred winterization method in a cold climate is to elevate the cooling tower outside until thermal performance is achieved. Once achieved, the process water should gravity fall into a remote process water tank that is placed inside a controlled atmosphere.
The second method would be using immersion heaters with a thermostat to keep the cold water basin from freezing. We offer screw type immersion heaters for the smaller cooling towers, and for the larger towers we have bottom mount heaters available.
