Ceramic fill cooling tower provides efficient, durable air conditioning at university

May 2010
American Ceramic Society Bulletin;May2010, Vol. 89 Issue 4, p13
The article offers information on the ceramic water-cooling tower installed at the Armstrong State University (AASU) in Savannah, Georgia. It discusses that the cooling tower, installed by Tower Engineering Inc., provides basic technology that will provide lifetime heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems for students and resistant to freeze-thaw cycles. Also explored is the comparison between ceramic fill system and the typical HVAC PVC-fill system.
