M106 is a film-type, bottom-supported cooling tower fill. Water flowing down the fill sheets forms a thin film on the surface of the sheets. This type of fill provides much more water surface exposure per cubic foot than does splash-type fill.
This fill offers greater cooling efficiency, which translates to colder water from present systems without an increase in fan horsepower. Or, this improved efficiency can be used to save horsepower and produce the same cold water temperature.
M-106 fill is also available with highly efficient drift eliminators molded right into the fill sheets. Compared with older designs, these eliminators reduce water carryover (drift) from the tower by a factor of ten or more! Reduced drift means lower water and treatment chemical costs.
The nuisance of spotting adjacent buildings and property due to cooling tower drift is virtually eliminated. Options include eliminators for both vertical and horizontal discharge cooling towers. Guiding the discharge air in the right direction further increases savings in fan horsepower.
M-106 is thermoformed from PVC sheets with a maximum flame spread rating of 25 per ASTM E-84. Therefore, the risk of fire damage is minimal.
M106 fill is impervious to rot, corrosion, and decay. The wide sheet spacing prevents clogging ensuring minimal maintenance and long service life.
M-106 is easy and inexpensive to install in almost all crossflow cooling towers. It requires minimal structural modification because it is bottom supported. The integral drift eliminators don’t need extra frames or retainers. M-106 provides more cooling capacity and improved drift elimination in one easily installed pack.
