cooling tower

cooling tower of the induced-draft, propeller type
A structure, usually on the roof of a building, over which water is circulated, so as to cool it evaporatively by contact with air.

In addition, a scale model experiment was performed to examine the situation where no wind-capture device was present at an open end ofthe prototype evaporative cooling tower. Without a wind-capture device, the results revealed a negative wind pressure coefficient would be obtained at the open top of the tower in the presence of a crosswind.
Using a wind-capture device can potentially increase the flow of air in an evaporative cooling tower, thereby enhancing the comfort of occupants of the conditioned space.
Evaporative cooling tower cells are fully assembled up to 175-ton size; larger units are also available.
New industry regulations often require cooling towers to lower the drift rate to 0.0005 per cent of circulating water flow, which can be difficult to achieve in older evaporative cooling towers. Many cooling towers currently in use are not equipped to handle these demands.
Additionally, many commercial and industrial cooling plants also use evaporative cooling towers, also consuming some amount of water.
Interpretation-The intent of this language is to measure, monitor and control make-up water use in evaporative cooling towers sized for greater than 500 gpm (30 l/s) of design flow.
This also expanded to cover the dosing and control of cooling water in evaporative cooling towers with the equipment being assembled onto back plates ready wired and pressure tested for installation on site.
BALTICARE'S Midlands office is reporting a 24% increase in demand for evaporative cooling towers and associated services for air conditioning, industrial refrigeration and process cooling systems.
Evaporative cooling towers provide cooling to buildings and processes by maximizing the direct contact of water to air in order to maximize evaporation and thus cooling of the water.
This system also includes two evaporative cooling towers, 13 stainless steel industrial evaporators and two large air-handling units.
The latest engineered systems for evaporative cooling towers (see Fig.1) all begin by continuously monitoring dissolved solids levels as a basis for controlling the valves that bleed off the old water and let in the new.
