1. Installation context

In 2012, the Italian Institute of Technology in Genoa, a state-run scientific organization, requested a cooling solution for the Institute’s refrigeration units aimed at meeting its thermal needs. The goal was to replace the old sheet metal evaporative towers, now in poor condition, with new solutions that would provide certified performance. Project leader for the air conditioning system: the company Omega Concept Impianti e Sistemi.

2. Proposed solution

MITA Cooling Technologies supplied three PME 2054 E K12 Silent open-circuit cooling towers to the Institute: the K12 model has Eurovent-certified performance, and the Silent version ensures low noise levels due to the low installed power. In addition, the coolers supplied to the Institute have a walkable flat roof with an access ladder and protective railings to ensure access to the fan unit, and vibration switches to signal any faults to the fan units. Efficiency, low noise, simple operation and internal inspection.

3. Results and critical success factor

The cooling towers supplied by MITA met the expectations of the Italian Institute of Technology and the lead contractor Omega Concept Impianti e Sistemi, responsible for the construction of the air conditioning plant. The special technical offerings and construction plusses were particularly appreciated, which on the whole ensure ease of maintenance and operation and also contribute to the overall efficiency of the air conditioning plant.
