Cooling Towers

Cleaning Routine Simplified, Equipment Efficiency Optimized, and System Downtime Minimized

Refrigeration is used in many industries – from food processing, manufacturing, and data centers to hospitals and schools, cooling equipment can present challenges to those who deal with their day-to-day functions. Cooling towers are designed to combine outside air with water throughout the tower’s extended surface fill medium to induce cooling. Putting as much water surface area in contact with as much air as possible, for the longest amount of time will deliver the greatest cooling capacity.

Cooling tower fans must move large volumes of air and water efficiently. As outside air is continuously recirculated through the equipment, large amounts of environmental dirt, debris, and other contaminants such as cottonwood are drawn in as well. Thousands of dollars and man hours are required for maintenance to remove airborne debris.

Simple, Powerful Filters


PreVent air intake screens stop airborne contaminants before they ever get inside your cooling tower. UV protected and custom sized, PreVent fits to the intake enclosure with a variety of mount options. Cleans in minutes with a broom or shop vac.

The Prevent System Improves Efficiency, Increases Reliability and Saves Money

Prevent clogging of fill material, extending fill life and promoting optimal heat transfer

Prevent sludge buildup in water basins, reduces the need for chemicals

Prevent clogging of strainers, spray nozzles and blow down valves

Help fight bacterial proliferation by eliminating debris nutrients

Eliminate downtime and costly cleaning due to fouling

Diffuse sunlight to help fight algae growth

PreVent air intake screens stop airborne contaminants before they ever get inside a cooling tower, improving equipment reliability and efficiency.

  • Several of our large commercial buildings in Atlanta have purchased the PreVent filtering product for their cooling towers. The benefits of being able to get through our spring season without much intrusion into the building owners equipment has been successful. The product was easy to install and has been simple for the customers to maintain. We are excited to have this product in our line of filtration options.

  • The R2 filters I have sold have worked very well. They do as advertised, by keeping the inside of our air compressors clean. No customer complaints after the sale and no problems with the construction of the washable filters. Your delivery times are fast and your customer service agents are a pleasure to work with. I look forward in continuing our business relationship with Permatron in 2013 and thank you for all of the continued support that we receive in making our compressors work better.

  • I attached a couple of photos of the completed PreVent Screens installed on Trane rooftop units. They fit very well to our dimensions and look good also. Your folks did a good job on matching all of our requested dimensions. I will keep you guys in our contact list as I can see several applications for your product that would be beneficial & it is another product we can offer to our customers.
