Eurovent and the Cooling Technology Institute
Eurovent and the CTI have established a cooperation agreement under which the CTI provides thermal certification process services for cooling towers to Eurovent. This includes thermal testing and administration according to CTI STD-201 RS and OM for product lines that originate their certification process with Eurovent. Manufacturers with CTI certified product lines can also be covered under Eurovent Certita Certification (ECC). For all EC certified products either manufactured in Europe or imported into the region, ECC
conducts factory audits of the respective manufacturers to assure that what is being manufactured conforms to the data of record submitted by that manufacturer for each certified product line. Note that the CTI and ECC each allow dual certification, but neither require it.

By purchasing a CTI Certified model, the owner/operator has assurance that the tower will perform as specified. Either that model, or one within its model line, will have been thoroughly tested by a CTI-licensed testing agency and found to perform as claimed by the manufacturer.
The following is a directory of cooling tower models currently certified under STD-201. They are part of product lines offered by far-sighted cooling tower companies who are committed to the manufacture and installation of full-performance towers. In competition with each other, these manufacturers benefit from knowing that they each achieve their published performance capability. They are therefore free to distinguish themselves through design excellence and concern for the owner/operator's operational safety and convenience.
Those Manufacturers who have not yet chosen to certify their product lines are invited to do so at the earliest opportunity.
