I need a tower, what now?

For a cooling tower budget, it is necessary to collect accurate information about the industrial process in which it will work.

There are several factors that need to be analyzed, for example:

·      The operational flow rate (in l/h or m³/h),

·      The temperatures of hot water (the one that will come out of your process), of cold water (the one that will return to your process), and also the TBU (wet bulb temperature) of the region where it will be installed,

·     What are the characteristics of the water (if it is clean, raw, with residues, etc.), if it is stillage, etc.

Why is it so important to know all the characteristics of the process?

There is no magic formula. The towers need to be dimensioned by their own programs for this, with skilled engineering and high technical knowledge of the product, because a poorly chosen filling, a temperature not considered or a poorly dimensioned component, will impact directly on the operation of the tower and may seriously damage the entire process.

Trust anyone who understands the subject!

Contact the VETTOR experts.

All necessary information will be collected and then an accurate budget will be prepared.

Reform or Recapacitate?

Industrial stoppages are a challenge, and it is not always possible to make them. 

In order to facilitate this process, VETTOR has performance tests allied to the technical capacity of its professionals, which in turn, help in the fast identification of problems, through accurate and real diagnosis of equipment conditions.

But how do you know whether to retire or recapacitate?

The reform becomes necessary when the components are damaged, either by lack of preventive maintenance or by changes in the industrial processes that impair the heat exchange, bearing in mind that the cold-water temperature necessary for the process is no longer being reached.

In the case of recapacitating, a study is made that recovers and maximizes the original performance conditions established in the project, and the necessary changes are made to the tower's structure so that it can meet this new process.

Whatever your need is, the team of highly experienced technicians and engineers will visit your plant, elaborating a special study and assessing the best way to serve you.

Don't let your industrial process be disrupted. Schedule a technical visit for evaluations and tests!

What is a Cooling Tower?

Have you ever heard of Water-Cooling Tower?

Cooling towers are equipment’s used for cooling industrial water. 

In the great majority of industrial processes, there is a need to cool equipment and machinery that generate a certain amount of heat during operation.

The basic concept of a tower operation is the introduction of water in its upper part, through the input nozzle, distributing to the contact fill by means of nozzles or distribution nozzles.

At the same time, the fan installed on the top or side of the tower sucks or blows the air inside, transporting it to the fill, so that hot air contact with cold water occurs, thus promoting heat transfer.

In towers without a fill, cooling takes place directly through the contact of water with air, so that hot air comes out from the top of the tower and cold water is made available by the outlet nozzle installed in the cold-water basin.

Water cooling tower design requires technical knowledge of basic engineering principles, and requires practical applications of these principles, using materials and techniques suitable for each need, in order to obtain the best desired results. To achieve this, the basic components such as structure, fill, water distribution system, shutters, droplet eliminators, closure, platforms and fan cylinder (or diffuser) need to be properly designed to form an integral unit.

VETTOR tower manufacturing processes are ISO 9001 certified, guaranteeing high quality, and the company is also a member of CTI - Cooling Technology Institute, the U.S. body that regulates international standards for water cooling towers.

Vinasse Tower

Vinasse, also known as vinhoto, tiborna or restilo, is a residue that remains in the processes of the Sugar and Ethanol Plants, and according to studies, it has already been used on a large scale for other purposes, as a natural fertilizer, decreasing the use of chemical fertilizers and minimizing salinization and contamination of the water table.

The water released with vinasse reaches up to 95ºC, and needs to go through the cooling process in the towers of the VTV model, which are made precisely for this purpose, making not only the industrial processes of the Plants are attended, but also benefiting the environment.

Each customer's request is attended in a unique way, with the custom sizing according to the specific need, so that in some cases, technical visits are necessary to analyze the customer's plant and prepare the towers, including special details to increase durability and ensure the best performance.

Are you looking for a vinasse tower?

The 10th SIPAT was a success!

VETTOR promoted, in the week between the days 13/05/2019 and 17/05/2019, the 10th SIPAT (Internal Week of Prevention of Accidents at Work), giving lectures with the themes: Ergonomics, Accident with Hands and Motivation. In addition, there was an exclusive day for the awareness of sexually transmitted diseases, with the delivery of condoms and explicative folders.

Besides the lectures, there was a drawing competition for the children of the collaborators, whose theme was: "Preserving the Environment".

All the employees who participated competed for several prizes, and the winner of the elected sentence, which elucidated this edition, received a special award.

The event was a great success and was attended by over 90% of employees!

Paraguayan Investments

With only 10 years of operation, INPASA is the largest producer of biofuels in Paraguay, producing 12 million liters of corn-based ethanol per month, and VETTOR is a partner in supplying large water-cooling towers to the plant located in the city of Nueva Esperanza. 

Recently, this important paraguayan client decided to invest in Brazil, by consolidating the second largest corn ethanol plant in the country, located in the state of Mato Grosso, with a production capacity of 1,4 million liters of ethanol per day, in addition to the production of protein for animal feed and corn oil. Once again, VETTOR was a key player in the supply of 7 VTF towers with  modular size of 110,0 m² per cell, structure in fiberglass and water basin in reinforced concrete, induced ventilation, fill grid type and droplet eliminator in PP, system of water distribution by pressure, with flow rate of more than 15 thousand m³ of water per hour, designed to measure, according to the specific need established and approved by the north-American biofuels technology company KATZEN.

PVC tube its the next big thing!

The expressive and constant growth of VETTOR GROUP has allowed it to expand its operations to other activities, and VTR TUBOS is already a success in the race with the major brands in the pipe and connection market. 

When it comes to investing in new technologies for the improvement of the process of capturing, treating and distributing water and effluents, it is essential to evaluate the quality of the PVC pipes that are being used. 

The PVC pipes are extremely useful for the conduction of potable water in supply and distribution systems, in fire prevention and industrial use facilities, and in buried water supply systems, also serving for the transportation of sanitary sewage in collecting systems, building connections, condominium and interceptor systems, as well as in pumping and treatment stations, besides the conduction of effluents in pressurized systems of residential and industrial sewage, with booster systems and pressure requirements. But that's not all. PVC pipes, initially manufactured only for use in water cooling towers, have gained space, and currently there are major projects underway to produce new pipes for new purposes.
