Techology & Recognition | Coolflo Engineers

It is the innovative and pioneering engineering acumen of the Directors that has resulted in the successful design and manufacture of aerodynamically superior and structurally reliable HOLLOW FIBRE REINFORCED PLASTIC (FRP) blade fans for wet Cooling Towers and Air Cooled Condensers.

Energy saving concept of replacing existing fans by high performance fans introduced as an innovative approach by ‘COOLFLO’ team about 2 decades back in India has been accepted by many. The Energy Management Centre of the MINISTRY OF ENERGY, New Delhi, GOVERNMENT OF INDIA, have enlisted only COOLFLO name for ENERGY EFFICIENCY EQUIPMENT DATA BASE in name for ENERGY CONSERVATION IN COOLING TOWERS. This is yet recognition of COOLFLO fans at the national level.

In recognition of the technological contribution in India in the field of Axial Flow Fans, COOLFLO Director was nominated for the prestigious office of the “President, National Society of Fluid Mechanics & Fluid Power (India)” for the year 1999-2000.

One of the Directors is also a Certified Energy Auditor by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency, Govt. of India.

The Technical papers presented at National and International conference on Fans and Cooling Towers, establishes the continuous R & D work done and recognition achieved by the Directors in India and Foreign Countries.
