Patented Structure Connections and Fill Support
Not only are Phoenix components designed exclusively for cooling tower use,
they are engineered for specific functions within the cooling tower structure.
Each component is designed to interface with other components.
Custom pultruded fiberglass members are Class I fire retardant and self-extinguishing.
Allows for use of lifts for safe and fast installation. Also allows easier basin cleaning and maintenance and inspection of tower components.
Ease of Basin Cleaning
Wide column spacing creates open basin floors that are easier to clean and maintain.
