FRP For The Power Generation Industry
Beetle’s experienced cooling tower engineering and design group can offer you the best value option for your particular application, whether it is one of our pre-engineered cooling towers, or a custom designed solution. Our team will work with you through the design, budgeting, planning, and installation of your cooling tower project to make sure you get the best job for the best value.
We have unmatched design intelligence that can provide product development and support. At Beetle Composites we can create new products as well as assist you with incremental improvements. We manufacture and supply components to over 85 other cooling tower companies and contractors in the U.S. and more than 110 around the world. With over 240,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing facilities we are well equipped to create exceptional products.
Leverage our strengths such as, single source design-build capabilities of new cooling tower construction or reconstruction, thermal upgrade, emergency repair, custom components, and replacement parts.
Our composite products are electromagnetically transparent, nonconductive and corrosion resistant. Our composites are perfect for use in cooling towers and discharge areas, as well as, around transmission structures, distribution equipment, in storage, and containment areas.
COOLING TOWER APPLICATIONS
We offer solutions for counterflow towers, crossflow towers, natural-draft towers, and ethanol towers. Similarly, we offer a wide range of custom components including, fan stacks, louvers, fan decking, water distribution systems, and fill and drift eliminators. Common applications include cooling the circulating water used in oil refineries, petrochemical and other chemical plants, nuclear power, thermal power stations and HVAC systems for cooling buildings.
In addition, we offer custom FRP structural components including: platforms, walkways, stairways, decking, platforms and railings. All of these products can be manufactured to satisfy your industry regulations and specifications. Our product offerings are diverse; we also offer galvanized cast iron and stainless steel hardware/components.
