U.S. Supreme Court Hears Cooling Tower Case

The United States Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Entergy Corp. v. EPA on December 2, 2008. AAEA President Norris McDonald attended the hearing. The case will determine whether or not the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is authorized to compare costs with benefits in determining the “best technology available” (BTA) for the cooling water intake structures of existing power plants. AAEA-NY believes cost/benefit analyses should be included in determining BTA.

This case will affect electric power plants that use a 'once-through' water-use process to cool heated water (steam) used to produce electricity. One interesting question in the proceeding: what is the cost of a fish egg?

Delta Cooling Towers is a manufacturer of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) cooling towers, air strippers, and water storage tanks.

Delta Cooling Towers are made from a CORROSION PROOF engineered plastic. The cooling tower shell will never rust, flake, chip, peel or ever need painting or protective coatings applied. Delta believes its towers are the future of the industry. Metal towers do not have the long-term corrosion protection advantages for outdoor usage. The galvanizing or other metal treatments only delay the corrosion of the underlying, often thin gauge sheet metal.

Delta manufactures a totally SEAMLESS cooling tower. Delta towers are the only large packaged cooling towers in the industry that have a “one-piece” shell. This means there are no seems, panels, rivets or hundreds of fasteners to fail or compromise the performance or integrity of the product.

Delta stands behind its products with the best warranty in the industry. Delta provides a 15-YEAR WARRANTY on the cooling towers structural shell. In addition, Delta’s cooling tower motors have a 5-year warranty.

Delta Cooling Towers are LOW MAINTENANCE by design. Delta has carefully designed its products to have minimal maintenance issues. Other manufacturers of cooling towers have much more complicated designs to achieve the same performance. This includes many more parts – which are more potential maintenance or require the maintenance of other towers. On Delta towers there are no gear reducers, couplings, additional shafts, or extra bearings to maintain.

Delta prides itself on exceptional CUSTOMER SERVICE. Our “can-do” mindset allows us to meet or exceed any customer’s cooling tower requirements. We offer many product options and can provide any accessories associated with cooling towers. www.deltacooling.com

cooling tower manufacturers have highly qualified professionals in the areas of mechanical engineering and process engineering and hence the design division always comes out with revolutionary models. A cooling tower serves to dissipate the heat into the atmosphere instead and wind and air diffusion spreads the heat over a much larger area than hot water can distribute heat in a body of water.
