Cooling Tower Software
There are many design guideline to assist engineers to understand the basic principles of cooling towers. These towers are basically used to remove excess heat that is generated in places such as power stations, chemical plants and even domestically in air conditioning units, and are relatively inexpensive and a dependable means of removing low-grade heat from cooling water and have developed into an important part of a plant (and widely use in various plants). There are different types of cooling towers, air and water flow pattern.
Importantly in this field it the knowledge of theories relative to the physical characteristics of natural air and thermal characteristics of water in plants, before starting the design/sizing a cooling tower; moreover, for understanding its calculation (such as water make-up, fan characteristics).
After many years of Cooling Tower design and production, we want to share our experience with professionals in the field. We have developed a program, useful and easy to handle, for the quick and secure design and calculation of a cooling tower project.
The “Cooling Tower Software” program is based on these two flow patterns managed by the cooling tower.
This calculating program has three functions and it can be used for:
(i) designing a new project,
(ii) upgrading the performance of an existing counter flow tower, and
(iii) verifying the efficiency and working conditions of a tower.
In general, the program allows to know all accurate data related to cooling tower with different types of fill (splash or film) and, furthermore, optimize it for better performance.
Cooling towers tend to be clogged due to scale/limestone/algae, since it always has direct contact with the water and air. Hence, proper material selection or additional water treatment is then needed to keep the cooling tower running efficiently and safe.
Proper management is essential to maintain performance in order to prevent malfunctions and, as a consequence, drastic losses due to non-functionalities until it blocks the plant production.
In addition to the program, we have also developed a filling material for systems that exploit the physical principle of “mass transfer” to migrate from one element (water) to another (air), called TURBOsplash PAC ®™. This filling material is employed in water cooling towers, exploiting the two elements, water and air, to increase performance and allow for a reliable and long functioning period.
