Structured Fill Media

XThermoTrade s.r.l.’s fill media are made of a series of high-quality thermoformed PVC sheets. They arranged in blocks to raise the contact surface between air and water, in order to use the evaporative heat exchange.

Model X13

Cooling towers

The X13 fill media are used in cooling towers with moderately clean water and a minimized tower volume (such as in the air conditioning sector); they are also used in both induced draft and cross flow applications.

Scrubbing towers

The X13 fill media used in scrubbing towers stand out for the fact that the thermoformed sheets glued together at a 60° angle, and for their specific wave design. The X13 offers an optimal distribution of water, favoring maximum use of contact surface and consequently enhancing performance. Furthermore, this type of fill media is ideal for scrubbing towers because it uses a simple and convenient support system.

Painting booths

The X13 fill media used in painting booths stand out for the fact that the thermoformed sheets glued together at a 60° angle, and for their specific wave design. The X13 offers a high contact surface and combines separation and coalescence effects.

Model X20

Cooling towers

The X20 fill media used mostly in industrial rather than private sector applications, in situations with dirty water or moderately dirty environments. Due to their wave configuration they can also be used in purification systems. They also used in both induced draft and cross flow applications.

Scrubbing towers

The X20 fill media used in scrubbing towers stand out for the fact that the thermoformed sheets glued together at a 72° angle, and for their specific wave design. The X20 offers an optimal distribution of water, favoring maximum use of contact surface and consequently enhancing performance. Furthermore, this type of fill media is ideal for scrubbing towers because it uses a simple and convenient support system.

Model X27

Cooling towers

The X27 fill media are used is cooling towers and most importantly in heavy-duty industrial applications. They made up of a series of thermoformed PVC sheets, glued together so that the wave profile in each sheet is a mirror reflection of the one in the next, forming modules of the size detailed in the specifications.

Water purification

The X27 fill media used in water purification in trickling filters with high flow rates; the recommended fill has a wave of 27 mm, allowing for a specific surface of over 114 m²/m³. The product’s particular conformation favors the growth of biological silt and its retention over time; furthermore, silt development aided by the surface wetting that is called for to strengthen the fill media’s structure.
The X27 offers the following benefits:

Optimal distribution of water, allowing for full use of support surfaces;

Optimal distribution of air;

Mud easily separated from support areas;

Simple support systems for installation and laying;

Safer inspection and maintenance thanks to the fill’s rigid and continuous shape;

Using fill media in active mud purification vats may also greatly aid the denitrification process.
