The Cooling Technology Institute has a very successful, long standing program for thermal capability certification of factory assembled towers, but this type of confidence or 3rd party validation for published sound levels does not exist within the industry. The paper discusses an approach taken, with its successes and challenges, to acquire a sound data set for an entire crossflow model line that accurately reflects sound emission of all models within the line.
