We all know that "fill" is the heart of every cooling tower. We also know every cooling tower operates with differing environmental constraints, water quality and thermal performance needs so there is no "one size fits all" when it comes to choosing fill for your project. Whatever your needs, we have them covered from splash filled crossflow components to high efficiency film fill and everything in between.
When selecting a counterflow fill many factors must be considered. Your customers are looking for reliable thermal performance as well as durability in the product; you can deliver both with CE Shepherd fills.
We have fills available in various sheet thicknesses and profiles for virtually any application. If you need help selecting one, just give us a call or refer to the "Technical Resources" section of this website for guidelines based on water quality. For thermal performance assessments, give us a call and we will help you choose the most cost effective fill for your specific application.

"Gull Wing" fill, available in 4-inch or 6-inch widths, is our latest and most efficient fill slat offering. The unique design of the Gull Wing Fill effectively addresses two key concepts clearly lacking in the majority of competitive fill slats: span and water bypass. Span is assured with full bearing surface contact between the slat and hanger and a center rib stiffener for increased strength. A unique retainer notch placed at regular intervals creates a space for the hanger grid while providing a full eighth-inch overhang per side to virtually eliminate water bypass. Gull Wing fill bars are manufactured of extruded PVC with either carbon black or titanium dioxide as a UV inhibitor. The fill bars are 50 mil (+/- 0.005") thickness with a uniform hole punch pattern surface to aid in water break-up.
"V-Bar" splash bars are also available and, like "Gull Wing", are manufactured of extruded PVC with either carbon black or titanium dioxide as a UV inhibitor. The fill bars are 50 mil (+/- 0.005") thickness with a uniform hole punch pattern surface to aid in water break-up.
And of course crossflow fills need quality wire hangers and accessories to insure reliable installations. For many years CE Shepherd has been the leading crossflow fill hanger wire manufacturer offering both fusion bonded pvc coated galvanized steel wire as well as stainless steel hangers. Our crossflow systems also include hanger brackets for attaching the wire hangers to the cooling tower structure as well as retainer clips for securing the fill bars to the hanger wire. We are truly a "One Stop Shop" for crossflow fill systems.
