Cooling Tower Lumber

Cooling Tower Lumber and plywood supplied by Amertech Tower Services are in accordance with Cooling Tower Institute.All cooling tower lumber and plywood supplied by AmertechTowerServices are in accordance with Cooling Tower Institute (CTI) standard 112.

Cooling towers are subjected to the harshest environments conceivable. The wet-dry cyclical conditions and structural designs intensify the undisciplined seasoning of the wooden members, resulting in warping, twisting and checking.

Most large process cooling towers have a wood structure (typically Douglas fir or redwood) encased with fiberglass siding. The outer surface of the lumber is treated with a preservative chemical to prevent fungal attack that might lead to internal rot.
