This is Russ Lindemann, Manager of Marketing at BAC and I am old! If you ask “How old am I?” I would reply that I have been at BAC so long that I can remember when BAC was the only manufacturer of cooling towers that had their thermal capacity independently certified by the Cooling Tower Institute, now known as the Cooling Technology Institute. That was back in 1983, which coincidentally was the last time the Orioles won the World Series, Brooks Robinson was elected to the Hall of Fame and it was the same year that the Baltimore Colts played their last game in Baltimore.
In 1983, BAC introduced the industries first CTI Certified cooling tower, the FXT Cooling Tower. Today, all of BAC’s open and closed circuit cooling towers are CTI Certified. In fact, CTI has over 40 certified product lines that include both open and closed circuit cooling towers. Certification of thermal performance is important to our industry since it provides independent assurance that a specific cooling tower will perform in accordance with the manufacturer’s published thermal performance data. For more information refer to CTI Certification in the Knowledge Center.
One product type that lacks certified performance is evaporative condensers. Should manufacturers pursue certification of evaporative condenser performance?
