1. EVAPCO Model CAT 17-814

2. Approved Substitute

2.2 THERMAL PERFORMANCE

A. Each unit shall be capable to cool 1,000.00 GPM of water entering at 95.00° F leaving at 85.00° F at a design wet bulb of 78.00° F.

2.3 COMPONENTS

A. Description: Factory assembled and tested, induced draft counter flow cooling tower complete with fan, fill, louvers, accessories and rigging supports

B. Materials of Construction

1. All cold water basin components including vertical supports, air inlet louver frames and panels up to rigging seam shall be constructed of heavy gauge mill hot-dip galvanized steel.

2. Upper Casing, channels and angle supports shall be constructed of heavy gauge mill hot-dip galvanized steel. Fan cowl and guard shall be constructed of galvanized steel. All galvanized steel shall be coated with a minimum of 2.35 ounces of zinc per square foot of area (G-235 Hot-Dip Galvanized Steel designation). During fabrication, all galvanized steel panel edges shall be coated with a 95% pure zinc-rich compound.

C. Assembly

1. Unit shall ship assembled except for vertical basin supports, fan motors, and air inlet louvers, which shall be shipped loose in the unit basin. The entire unit shall fit into a standard shipping container for transport.

D. Fan(s):

1. Fan(s) shall be high efficiency axial propeller type with aluminum wide chord blade construction. Each fan shall be dynamically balanced and installed in a closely fitted cowl with venturi air inlet for maximum fan efficiency.

E. Drift Eliminators

1. Drift eliminators shall be constructed entirely of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) in easily handled sections. Design shall incorporate three changes in air direction and limit the water carryover to a maximum of 0.001% of the recirculating water rate.

F. Water Distribution System

1. Spray nozzles shall be precision molded ABS, large orifice nozzles utilizing fluidic technology for superior water distribution over the fill media. Nozzles shall be designed to minimize water distribution system maintenance. Spray header and branches shall be Schedule 40 Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) for corrosion resistance with a steel connection to attach external piping.

G. Heat Transfer Media

The bonded block fill shall be bottom supported and suitable as an internal working platform. Fill shall be self-extinguishing, have a flame spread of 5 under A.S.T.M. designation E-84-81a, and shall be resistant to rot, decay and biological attack.

H. Air Inlet Louvers

1. The air inlet louver screens shall be constructed from UV inhibited polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and incorporate a framed interlocking design that allows for easy removal of louver screens for access to the entire basin area for maintenance. The louver screens shall have a minimum of two changes in air direction and shall be of a non-planar design to prevent splash-out and block direct sunlight & debris from entering the basin.

I. Make up Float Valve Assembly

1. Make up float assembly shall be a mechanical brass valve with an adjustable plastic float.

J. Pan Strainer
