FRP Cooling Towers Shipped Assembled

19 March 2004

Desom Systems, Canada, recently shipped two 11 m x 10.4 m x 9 m cooling towers weighing 14500 kg each to a large mining operation in the Pacific-Rim region.

The towers are fabricated from fibre reinforced plastic (FRP) and were shipped completely assembled to reduce construction costs on site.

As fully assembled units, Desom says these Dynamic Wall Cooling Towers (DWCT) represent two of the largest, completely assembled, FRP process vessels ever constructed and shipped as a single unit.

The DWCT Systems will provide cooling of the hot solutions from an autoclave leaching process. In the cooling process, impurities in the leach solution will be precipitated out of solution in the towers. The DWCT units have been designed to reduce build-up of precipitates and encrustations within the tower internals, thereby prolonging operating life and reducing maintenance costs.
