SPX Introduces the Marley BasinGard Filter

SPX Cooling Technologies, a full-line, full-service industry leader in the design and manufacture of evaporative cooling towers and air-cooled heat exchangers, has introduced the Marley BasinGard Filter as part of its MarleyGard Water Management and Tower Protection Tools, available for new and existing factory-assembled, crossflow cooling towers. The BasinGard Filter maintains the cooling tower’s hot water basin flow by capturing mineral scale, pipe rust, fibers and debris.

Using a stainless steel grid to provide stability and hold the filter into place, the patent-pending nylon BasinGard Filter is infused with silver-based biocide, offering antimicrobial benefits to help maintain cooling tower hygiene. Because it ensures free flow of water to the nozzles – even with up to 75% heavy debris blockage – the BasinGard Filter reduces the risk of basin overflow, guards against premature component replacement and helps maintain cooling tower performance. It also provides twice the clog resistance of a hot water basin without a BasinGard Filter.

The BasinGard Filter captures debris #4 mesh or larger and withstands harsh cooling tower environments. To help sustain microbial properties, the BasinGard Filter is replaceable. It is also easy to install and reduces maintenance and cleaning costs, as the filter helps prevent debris from reaching other components downstream, including cooling tower fill, pump impellers and heat exchangers.
