Martin Resources – Industrial Cooling Tower Addition 2016

Martin Resources came to McMillan James Equipment Company’s Aftermarket Group with a challenge:
Rebuild an existing wooden cooling tower at a chemical plant with a shutdown to be measured in days, not weeks. The existing 2,100 GPM cooling tower shall also be increased to handle 2,600 GPM at the existing 35° delta T.

McMillan James proposed the requested wooden cooling tower refurbishment at a 3-week shutdown, and gave an alternate to provide a new 2-cell fiberglass cooling tower including new pumps and VFDs at a slightly higher price and a total shutdown of 3 days.

Martin Resources chose to make the investment in a new system.

McMillan James Scope Included the following:
• MEP & Civil Engineered Drawings
• Concrete piers, pipe supports and equipment pads
• Structural Steel
• Excavation
• Underground piping totaling 640’, above ground piping to tie into existing heat exchangers, new pumps and cooling towers, insulation & heat trace
• Provide & Build one 2-Cell Fiberglass Marley Field Erected industrial grade cooling tower
• Provide and set two 125HP, 1,300 GPM horizontal Split Case PACO model 1015-9/0 KP pumps capable of 220’ TDH
