Atlas-SSI Announces Acquisition of Cooling Tower Valves and Screens LLC

 

Acquisition broadens portfolio with stainless-steel screens and valves that enable cooling tower operators to reduce costs while improving reliability.

MONTICELLO, Miss.Jan. 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Atlas-SSI, the largest traveling water screen and bulk material handling manufacturer in North America, today announced it has acquired Cooling Tower Valves and Screens LLC., based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The acquisition broadens the Atlas-SSI portfolio with a new line of screens and specialty valves that enable industrial facilities with cooling towers to lower the overall cost of unit operation while improving reliability.

Traveling sump screens play a critical role in preventing debris from damaging the components of industrial cooling towers. If debris reaches the pump and impedes the flow of water, temperature in the operating unit will increase, and performance will be reduced. In addition, pump motors will use more energy to generate adequate water flow levels, resulting in higher operating costs and CO2 emissions.

“This acquisition further strengthens our leading portfolio of screen solutions that remove plastics and debris from water sources to protect the environment and critical infrastructure assets,” said Paul Lewis, CEO of Atlas-SSI. “The team at Cooling Tower Valves and Screens LLC. is well-respected in the industry, and we are excited to add their expertise to our family.”

The Vari-Flow™ lines of stainless-steel traveling sump screens and flow control valves have been operating in the industrial cooling tower industry for over 26 years. Traveling sump screens offers a simple and “maintenance-free” solution to help prevent downstream heat exchanger and condenser fouling while providing the benefits of manual or automated operation. Specialty control valves balance the flow of water to prevent vibration, optimizing the cooling tower’s performance for even heat transfer across the tower, thereby mitigating the need for continual adjustment, repair and replacement.

Brad Knecht President, of Cooling Tower Valves & Screens LLC., said, “We look forward to being part of the Atlas-SSI family and leveraging their distribution, engineering, and manufacturing capabilities to continue to provide long-lasting, high-quality products to our customers.”
