For over 25 years, Kipcon has been designing new cooling towers and upgrading and inspecting existing ones.
Kipcon now performs drone inspections of all buildings, including cooling towers. The use of drone technology for this type of inspection not only increases safety by eliminating the need for scaffolding, but also increases quality and efficiency due to drones’ high quality 4k cameras and cutting-edge editing software.
You need it…we design it
Kipcon provides structural designs for new cooling towers and retrofits of existing towers, whether it be a cross-flow, counter-flow, wood, concrete fiberglass, wet and/or dry system. This includes basin design and basin load tables. Designs can incorporate an unlimited range of temperature considerations, as well as seismic and wind constraints. Furthermore, we personalize the calculations based on any code or owner requirements.
You have it…we inspect it
Kipcon also provides complete cooling tower inspection services and can develop remedial plans of action for retrofitting towers of different and mixed materials. Kipcon’s professional engineers and licensed inspectors can perform concrete basin evaluations using non-invasive testing techniques and comment on the structural adequacy of the design.
You want drawings…we will draft them
Kipcon prepares a number of drawing packages, including erection plans, connection and fabrication details using the latest CAD software. Depending on the size of the tower and its general configuration, these plans can be provided in as little as four weeks.
