GRP Cooling Towers – Aqua Group offer a range of Cooling Towers manufactured from glass reinforced plastic, often referred to as GRP. The range includes both induced draft and forced draft design towers.
GRP is a fibre reinforced polymer which is produced using tiny glass fibres and has become a modern-day alternative to more traditional materials such as aluminum and steel. Another name for GRP is glass fibre reinforced plastic, or GFRP. As a base material, GRP has several properties which go a long way in explaining its rise to popularity within cooling tower design and manufacture over recent years. GRP is corrosion resistant, so there is zero risk of it being affected by the aggressive chemicals found in cooling tower water treatment. In addition, GRP is a lightweight material, whilst also being strong. It’s also easy to mould from a design point of view into different shapes and designs. The uniqueness of GRP is that all these properties are found within a single material.
