The importance of water in the cooling tower industry – Water (part 10)
WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF A COOLING TOWER OPERATING AT LOW EFFICIENCY?
Cooling tower detailed calculations
A low efficient cooling tower brings very serious consequences.
The tower is part of a system designed to dispose residual waste heat from the production plant or other primary system. The lower efficiency of the tower affects the performance of the primary plant with considerable waste of energy and, most of all, reduction or lack of production.
CONSTRUCTION OF A COOLING TOWER: TIPS ON ITS COMPONENTS AND THEIR USE.
As we saw, the cooling tower is an essential part of the plant system and, generally, it is separated from the primary plant system to which it drives.
The cooling tower is normally ignored until it goes into failure. Hence, the choice of components is of utmost importance.
Choose a tower made of stainless steel. Towers that need to be installed in heavy environments, such as chemical industries, choose polyester reinforced with glass fiber.
We have witnessed towers that have been operating for over 30 years, in these heavy environments, in perfectly stable structure.
Other useful tips and / or necessary will be exposed our next documentation work for publishing:
