The standard Cooling Tower Shade is a dark gray which at Strongwell is known as slate gray.  The slate gray shade typically resists color changes when exposed to UV better than other pigmentations. Occasionally, Cooling Tower customers request other shades for their applications such as beige (tan) or light gray.  The purpose of this paper is to discuss what is involved in changing the shade for the Cooling Tower applications and what pitfalls could occur with other pigmentations.
