ClearSky Solutions

The SPX ClearSky Plume-Abatement System is a ground-breaking approach to the reduction of cooling plumes. Using leading-edge technology, ClearSky provides proven performance including design flexibility and lower installation and operating costs.

ClearSky is the best value in plume abatement and can be installed into existing cooling tower applications, negating the need for complete system replacement.

For applications that require high-performance cooling systems but can’t afford the generation of visible plumes, ClearSky offers customers an effective solution without compromise.

How It Works

Building on the highly successful and effective SPX coil plume solution system, ClearSky provides the latest, evolutionary solution with its unique, patented design that is as effective as it is unconventional.

Delivering Measurable Value

It’s not enough to simply say something works — you need proof. That’s why the ClearSky story begins with SPX, a leading name in cooling towers for more than a century.

SPX Cooling Technologies has more than 80 plume-abatement installations worldwide, and the story continues based on technology funded in part by the U.S. Department of Energy as well as hundreds of thousands of hours of real-world operation.

Empowered by that legacy and expertise, the ClearSky Plume-Abatement System has been shown to provide effective, economical operation.

Meeting Your Specific Needs

The ClearSky system offers several unique benefits to EPCs, End Users and Regulators. That’s because ClearSky was developed based on a variety of criteria, reflecting diverse needs, applications, and conditions, including the following:

As a result, ClearSky offers solutions for multiple audiences, in turn providing them with the key features and benefits they need to meet their own specific challenges.

Engineering, Procurement, Construction

For EPCs, ClearSky provides a clear choice over conventional systems when selecting plume abatement, including greater back-to-back design flexibility as well as more economical investment, operating, and maintenance costs versus conventional systems.

  • Lower Installation Cost
    Less piping means less investment than conventional systems

  • Greater Design Flexibility
    Back-to-back design allows for easy installation, including retrofits

  • Reduced Maintenance Costs
    Unique patented design and materials means less need for maintenance

  • Reduced Auxiliary Power Usage
    Driven by pump head, ClearSky towers can effectively reduce auxiliary power usage when compared to coil type hybrid towers.

End Users/Operators

When plume abatement is necessary, ClearSky allows cooling tower operators to reduce plume production, minimizing operating costs without compromising cooling performance versus more expensive dry solutions.

  • Reduced Maintenance
    No coil replacement or fin cleaning, plus reduced operator monitoring and training

  • Improved Permitting
    Smoother process with reduced likelihood of interruptions due to public comment

  • Lower Cost Versus Dry
    The high-performance operation you need with fewer costs

  • Reduced Auxiliary Power Usage
    Driven by pump head, ClearSky towers can effectively reduce auxiliary power usage when compared to coil type hybrid towers.

Regulators

By minimizing visibility and safety issues, ClearSky provides cooling tower operators with an effective and reasonable solution for compliance with plume regulations.

  • Environmental Agency Regulations
    Utilizes less energy, and has lower carbon footprint, than dry systems

  • Local Municipal Codes
    Improved safety for surrounding transportation and improved neighbor relations

  • Improved Permitting
    Smoother process with reduced likelihood of interruptions due to public comment
