revamping

Thanks to our long and great experience in Cooling Towers designing and manufacturing, we are in a position to revamp and upgrade Field Erected and Factory Assembled Cooling Towers, produced both by ILMED IMPIANTI and by our competitors, of the followings typologies:

> INDUCED DRAFT
> FORCED DRAFT
> NATURAL DRAFT
> COUNTERFLOW DESIGN
> CROSSFLOW DESIGN

 

ILMED IMPIANTI, besides the new Cooling Towers installation and realization, performs the revamping of the existing Cooling Towers, through the “turn-key” formula.
This activity includes:

> INSPECTION OF THE TOWER
Before starting any activity, an accurate inspection of the cooling tower to be revamped must be conducted.
The inspection will check:
      the internal and external structure
      the gear motor/fan system
      the water distribution system
      the filling and drift eliminator
      that the project documents correspond to the actual situation

> SURVEY OF CURRENT HEAT LOADS
When possible, a performance test should be conducted to gain an accurate overview of the current situation of the heat loads. The new heating structure in which the tower will operate once the revamping has been completed will be designed based on the data obtained and on our Client's needs.

> STUDY AND ANALYSIS OF THE ORIGINAL PROJECT FEATURES
A careful analysis of the original cooling tower features is performed to identify any critical points in the thermal system and to intervene with the best solution.
With the assistance of specific specialist software, our technicians are then able to produce an accurate overview of the current situation.

> STUDY OF THERMODYNAMIC UPGRADING AND ENERGY SAVING SCHEMES
Once the new heat capacity to be achieved have been established and the works to be undertaken have been defined, our design departments can choose the most suitable components which have excellent energy saving features in addition to satisfying the design’s needs.

> REVAMPING DESIGN
At this stage, our designers will draft all the detail and assembly drawings and erection assemblies with technical specifications.

> MATERIALS AND COMPONENTS SUPPLY
Contrary to many cooling tower manufacturers, ILMED IMPIANTI produces and installs the main cooling tower components such as fans, filling and nozzles. These components, which are fundamental to achieving the performance desired, are the sole property of ILMED IMPIANTI.
For other important elements such as electric motor, speed reducers and driving shafts, ILMED IMPIANTI uses specialised primary manufacturers.

> INSTALLATION AND ERECTION WORKS
Erection works are carried out by Specialised Operators who are experts in cooling towers and their components. Assistance from ILMED IMPIANTI Supervisor Technicians is guaranteed during these works. The typical sequence of installation works are:

      Implementing safety measures on the tower to be revamped
      Disassembling the gear motor/fan system
      Disassembling the drift eliminators and water distribution system
      Disassembling the filling
      Cleaning the basin and removing waste
      Assembling the new water distribution system
      Assembling the new filling
      Assembling the new gear motor/fan system
      Assembling the new drift eliminators
      Assistance for start-up

All the process phases following a careful risk assessment and in accordance with current safety regulations.

> START-UP AND TEST RUN
Following start-up, ILMED IMPIANTI will perform a TEST RUN if necessary to confirm
that the desired objectives are reached and will issue a final report
with a performance guarantee.
