The CTI (Cooling Technology Institute) is an US-based, voluntary, technical industry association on cooling towers.
CTI prepares and publishes standards, rules and guidelines. The firms or real persons who wishes, can be a member of CTI. Becoming a member of CTI does not make your products certified.
Founded in 1970, CTI is one of the oldest institutions in this field and has set forth and published standards that are accepted all over the world. One of these is Standard for Water Cooling Tower Thermal Performance Certification. Independent testing agencies authorized by CTI conduct tests according to this standard and submit the results to the Certification Manager. The product is certified with the approval of the manager.
The CTI certificate guarantees that all models of a water cooling tower line by a specific Manufacturer would perform thermally in accordance with the Manufacturer’s published ratings.
Niba NB model cooling towers have been certified by CTI. In this context, Niba is the first manufacturer of cooling towers in Turkey.
At the same time Niba is a member of CTI, Eurovent and ISKID (Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Manufacturers' Association).
To have a certified product, gives a variety of advantages to both end-users and manufacturers.
For the end-user; these certifications guarantee that the products are subjected to independent tests and are rated correctly. Therefore, the chosen product works in conformity with the specified dimensioning and capacity. Material and components match with the investment. No need for a field test for capacity as the Certification assures the thermal capacity of a given model.
This standard has set forth a program whereby CTI could certify that all models of a line of evaporative heat rejection equipment offered for sale by a specific manufacturer would perform thermally in accordance with the manufacturer's published ratings.
By the purchase of a "certified" model, the end-user has assurance that the tower would perform as specified. For Niba, either that model or one within its model line, would have been thoroughly tested by a CTI-licensed testing agency for Certification and found to perform as claimed by the Manufacturer.
