Crossflow Cooling Tower

Marley AV Cooling Tower

Introducing the AV6800 consisting of 3 single height models and 2 double height models extending the product tonnage from 390 to 772 tons at standard conditions.

The factory-assembled Marley AV cooling tower is designed to minimize your costs and maximize your cooling tower performance through quick, easy installation and low maintenance operation. Its single flow, induced draft crossflow design offers you energy savings in a small footprint installation, making it an excellent crossflow cooling tower replacement for some forced draft counterflow cooling tower installations.

AV Water Distribution System

Gravity flow distribution system. Easy, nonrestrictive maintenance. Basin covers are standard.
Marley Spiral Target polypropylene nozzles for consistent, predictable water distribution.
Marley MX75 thermoformed PVC film fill is suspended from the upper cooling tower structure by heavy galvanized steel support members providing clearance between fill and sloping self-cleaning collection basin floor for easy basin cleaning. Integral eliminators and louvers keep circulating water confined to fill over a wide range of air flow rates.

AV Structure

Crossflow configuration — easier and safer to inspect, service and maintain.
G-235 heavy galvanized steel. Also available in 300 series stainless steel.
Factory-assembled modules, including fan cylinders — makes final field installation hassle-free.
Large access doors — the generous plenum region in the AV cooling tower is non-confining, permitting quick visual inspection of cold water basin, internal structure, drift eliminators and mechanical equipment.
