A heavy-duty plastic cooling tower built by Delta Cooling is enabling Kolani Distillers, a producer of rum situated on the Hawaiian island of Maui, to remove heat from its alcohol condenser system in all weather conditions.

According to father and son team Paul and Brian Case, it was important to choose the most appropriate cooling tower owing to Hawaii’s year-round high ambient temperatures.

They added that an engineered plastic tower — integral to the operation of the distillery’s alcohol condensation process — would be effective in handling the gusts of corrosive salt air that blows in off the surf half a mile from the distillery’s location in Paia.

They opted for a second-hand Paragon series cooling tower from Delta Cooling that had previously been in service at a chip manufacturing plant in New Hampshire.

Key features

  • Relatively lightweight, impervious to ultraviolet rays and corrosion proof
  • Tolerant of weather conditions ranging from harsh winters to tropical sunshine
  • Energy-saving design — the tower controls regulate the speed of the fan according to the ambient air temperature
