Induced Draft Cooling Tower

The induced draft cooling tower generally offers the most effective and economical solution to most of cooling needs. John Cockerill Hamon has supplied numerous IDCT worldwide for all power and industry applications and all environmental conditions. The IDCT offers the following advantages:

  • flexibility
  • cost effectiveness
  • air flow almost constant regardless ambient air temperature
  • adapted to any water flow
  • flexible operation by shutting some cells
  • adapted to high thermal performance
  • all types of structure – wood, FRP, concrete, steel
  • all types of heat exchange surfaces from splash grids to high performance film


  • water quality
  • air environment (chemicals, dust…)
  • noise and plume limitation
  • available plot area
  • local labor costs

John Cockerill Hamon can advise you on how to limit the effect of your tower on the environment in the field of:

  • performance
  • drift losses
  • noise level
  • prevention of legionela
