Hamon in a few words
Hamon started its industrial
activity in Europe (Belgium and
France) a century ago and devel-
oped the cooling tower business.
With growing mining and heavy
industry sectors, demand growth
prompted Hamon to move into
the energy business.
Hamon spread its wings geo-
graphically in the seventies and
further consolidated the thermal
business in the nineties. Hamon
became a world leader in the
product lines it chose to be in,
respectively:
• wet cooling towers
• air-cooled heat exchangers
• air pollution control: ESP, bag fl-
ters, fue gas treatment
• chimneys
Concept of centers of excellence
was implemented. Hamon Thermal
Europe with its engineering de-
partment and R&D center sup-
ports a network of factories and
sister companies, which locally
assure contracting, procurement
and feld services in the UK – Ger-
many – Spain – Italy – South Africa
– United Emirates – India – Korea
– China – Thailand – Indonesia –
Australia – Brazil...
Numerous installations and equip-
ment operating worldwide in a
wide range of industrial plants
are evidence of Hamon’s capabili-
ties and experience. Whatever the
industry you name, Hamon has
supplied cooling towers for it:
power plant, refnery and down-
stream petrochemical plant, ferti-
liser, paper industry, steel mill,
sugar mill, zinc smelter and other
metallurgical installation, chemical
plant, etc.

Hamon Thermal aims at offering
the best economical solution for
the whole lifetime of feld erect-
ed cooling towers. Hamon cares
for most of the industries and is
particularly expert in:
• accurate design meeting ex-
pected performance
• economical solutions with the
best cost/quality ratio
• strong feld capabilities
• development of new solutions
reducing further environmental
impact
• repair and maintenance
• dismantling
• recycling used PVC components
Our commitment to the industry
Hamon has a wide range of heat
transfer media suitable for:
• any industrial water
• sea water
• low pH solution
Depending on the application re-
quirements, the equipment is
designed to customer preferred
combination for effciency, long-
life expectancy, power saving and
respect of environmental local
regulations.
In order to meet these specifca-
tions a wide choice of solutions
is available in layout, arrange-
ment, structure, internals and
mechanical equipment.

Natural draft cooling towers
In the seventies and early eighties,
many large power plants were
built and equipped with tall natural
draft cooling towers (NDCT) in
Europe, US, South Africa, India,
China, etc.
NDCT were erroneously associat-
ed with nuclear plants. Since the
mid-eighties, very few were built
in the Western countries because
of lack of large power plant pro-
jects, visual impact constraints, and
a general feeling of pollution as-
sociated with them.
The trend is now reversing as in
many places, natural draft towers
are now regarded as environ-
mentally friendly thanks to the
power saving that they generate.
Beyond the power saving, NDCT
offers the following advantages:
• limited plot area
• no mechanical noise (no fan)
• limited maintenance
• high longevity (generally more
than plant life expectancy)
The payback period of an NDCT is
8 to 16 years depending on sev-
eral factors. The main one is the
local con struction cost, which may
dramatically vary from one country
to another. Hamon can either sup-
ply the turnkey tower or the ther-
mal part with services like civil
work design, construction steer-
ing, supervision, erection...
Hamon has designed and built
more than 300 NDCT and has a
wide experience even for high seis-
mic and severe weather conditions.
Hamon is at your disposal to help
you developing your project any-
where on the globe, preparing
budget proposal, civil work in-
cluded, and selecting the most
appropriate solution for perform-
ance, heat transfer media, noise
reduction, etc.

The fan assisted natural draft cool-
ing tower (FANDCT) is an attrac-
tive option when:

Natural draft cooling tower rehabilitation
Along the years the environmen-
tal concern and consequent rules,
have strengthened and the water
rejection conditions have been
changing; the use of chemical ad-
ditives has been restricted. There-
fore, the water characteristics are
such that scaling and fouling will
occur more frequently. Another
exchange surface than the origi-
nal one should be selected for the
new water conditions. Indeed, the
thermal performance must be
considered on a long-term basis.
The media which seems to offer
the best qualities can lose them
very rapidly if operating conditions
and water quality have not been
taken into account. Hamon’s ex-
perience will help you evaluate
the most effective heat exchange
surface.
Rehabilitation will restore the per-
formance of the original design of
a Hamon cooling tower. In other
cooling towers, we will probably
reach a performance improvement.
Another concern may also be the
time available for such an opera-
tion resulting in the total shut-
down of the tower. Our erection
teams have proven their effciency
and commitment to safety: e.g.
a NDCT of 106 m diameter and
126 m height. Scope: removal of
existing flm fll, installation of
10 000 m³ new fll, replacement of
sprayers, removal, cleaning and re-
installation of drift eliminators,
repair of de-icing system grids and
several small other repair works.
Work performed in 3 shifts, 6 days/
week in 22 days.
Hamon is also fully qualifed to re-
move asbestos cement sheets and
to replace them with the best
suited material.
Hamon also offers solutions for
the recycling of the PVC in order
to re-use it as raw material in oth-
er production processes.
Fan assisted natural draft cooling towers
• the available plot area does not
allow mechanical draft narrow
bar construction
• height is limited for visual reason
• due to the climate conditions
fans to boost the air fow are
required. The investment in a tall
shell becomes therefore eco-
nomically unjustifed.
6
Thanks to its fexibility and cost
effectiveness, the mechanical draft
cooling tower (IDCT) ideally an-
swers most cooling duties and
plant requirements. With approxi-
mately 5000 references in this
type of tower, Hamon has come
across most of the application re-
quirements and has developed
the technology to meet them. Each
customer takes full advantage of
this technology data base and en-
joys a product that is fne tuned
and flls his requirements and
budget.
We build any size of IDCT with all
type of structures (steel, wood,
FRP, prefab concrete, cast con-
Mechanical draft cooling towers
crete) and many heat exchange
surfaces (from splash grids to high
performance flm). All system ele-
ments, beyond customer specifc
requirements guide our design:

• water quality
• air environment
(chemicals, dust, ...)
• noise and plume limitation
• available plot area
• local labor costs
All our equipment is supplied with
an O&M manual that clearly
specifes operation, maintenance,
health and safety requirements
and recommendations.
For all cooling towers, we clearly
advise the impact on the environ-
ment such as performance, drift
loss, noise level, etc. In order to
help in the prevention of legionella,
our cooling tower designs follow
the best practices and allow clean-
ing and access to the internal
parts of the tower.

A plume abated cooling tower (PABCT) is the best avail-
able solution where local constraints are such that the
presence of plume is not accepted in normal conditions
(along motorways, airports, close to residential areas...).
This tower is an IDCT offering the same fexibility, adapt-
ability and all features listed in the previous page. Com-
pared to other technical solutions, it combines the
following advantages:
• no plume visibility
• outstanding performance of an evaporative cooling
tower
• cost attractiveness
In this area, also called hybrid or wet/dry, Hamon’s tech-
nology is unrivaled.

Outlet air of the wet section of

with the air heated @ by the
fnned tube bundles installed in
the walls above the wet section.
Outlet air characteristics @ will
then be positioned on the line
linking points @ and @.
If the line linking points @ and @
does not cross the 100% humidity
curve, no plume will be visible.

Sea water
When close to the sea shore, many plants are cooled by a once through
sea water system. The investment for such a system is huge and the heat
rejection back to the sea can either generate hot water recirculation and/
or impact the sea ecosystem beyond acceptable levels. Replacing the once
through system by a cooling tower circuit tremendously reduces both initial
investment costs and sea environmental impact of the power plant. The
design of the cooling tower will take, among others, the salt concentra-
tion into account. Special care is given to construction materials (structure
in concrete, protection for mechanical parts, etc.) and fll media type.
Hamon sea water cooling towers are cooling millions of cubic meters in
many places in the world. All design arrangements are available with sea
water: NDCT, FANDCT, IDCT, PACT.
Noise attenuation
In order to limit the noise level, actions can be taken at three level:
• at the source with low noise fans and mechanical devices
• at the emission area with louvers, baffes, motor enclosures, special
casing type
• between the noise source and the reception point with screens, walls
or embankments
Flue gas dispersion through natural draft cooling towers
In thermal power plants, where fue gas are treated by wet desulphurization,
fue gas temperature is such that large chimneys and ventilation extracting
systems are required. A cost effective alternative is to reject these gases
in a NDCT, where they are then mixed with exhaust air and rejected at
high level. The natural draft cooling tower assures a better dispersion in
the atmosphere than a conventional chimney. Hamon has developed a
design in which the fue gas pipe is supported by the shell and penetrates
it at fue gas washer exit level.
Cooling towers for zinc electrolysis
Hamon has developed a cooling tower specially designed to handle zinc
electrolyte solution or highly corrosive liquid (PH =1). This process has
been proving its effciency for many years. Due to the very aggressive
environment in which these towers are operating, easy maintenance
is essential. We have therefore improved the internal accessibility – no
scaffolding is necessary – and we use removable sprayers. The drift
loss has also been minimized to 0.001% and lower.
Special applications
9
The selection of the heat transfer media is essential to guarantee the
optimal effciency of your cooling tower. As a result of Hamon’s continuous
thermal research, we can offer you a full range of flls covering all cooling
water types.
The COOLDROP
@
, the real splash fll, is the all purpose solution suitable
for most water qualities, including sea water and heavily contaminated
water. This heat transfer media consists of trays (the Hamon diamond
grids) hung from beams located above the water distribution. The dia-
mond grids, their supports and spacers are made of polypropylene; the
wires according to the water aggressiveness are in SS316 or in a more
exotic alloy.
Maximum debris size (diameter): 50 mm
The DROPPACK
@
fll combines splash and flm heat exchange process
with the advantages of low fouling capability of the splash fll and the
good thermal effciency of the flm fll. It is well adapted to any induced
or natural draft cooling tower using poor industrial water quality. Water
with high concentrations of suspended fbres is not recommended.
Maximum debris size (diameter): 30 mm
The COOLFREE
@
is the most advanced flm fll combining low-fouling
and low-scaling properties whilst retaining good thermal performance.
The main application is for cooling towers using very poor water quality,
in some cases even without water treatment. It is also very good for flm
fll cross-fow cooling towers.
Maximum debris size (diameter): 30 mm
The CLEANFLOW
@
flm fll is qualifed worldwide as the best flm fll
combining low fouling properties with good thermal performance. It is
well adapted to any induced draft or natural draft cooling tower using
poor quality industrial water. It is also suitable for other severe applica-
tions such as laminated decanting and gas cleaning.
Maximum debris size (diameter): 32 mm
The CLEANFLOW PLUS
@
is the improved technology of the cleanfow fll
by increasing its thermal performance whilst retaining its fouling resist-
ance. It is well adapted to any induced or natural draft cooling tower
using poor industrial water quality, in particular sea water.
Maximum debris size (diameter): 22 mm
The COOLFILM
@
is probably the most thermally effcient fll worldwide.
It is well adapted to any induced draft or natural draft cooling tower using
normal industrial water quality.

A preventive maintenance pro-
gram is essential to ensure smooth
operation avoiding unexpected
costly shutdowns and problems
associated with legionella. Further-
more, for several reasons (ageing
tower, increased power need, tech-
nical improvements, etc.) other
works are required during the life
time of the cooling tower.
Customers recognize Hamon for
its fnely tuned service assuring:
