coolingtowers-pdf) 2 type of cooling tower type of cooling tower is determined primarily by the direction of the air flow when it contacts with the water and the way of creating air flow. if the air contacts the water in crossing direction, the cooling tower will be called as crossflow.
cooling towers are equipment devices commonly used to dissipate heat from power generation units, water-cooled refrigeration, air conditioning and industrial processes. cooling towers offer an excellent alternative particularly in locations where
the thermal capability of a cooling tower used for air condition- ing is often expressed in nominal cooling tower tons. a nominal cooling tower ton is defined as cooling 3 gpm of water from 95°f to 85°f at a 78°f entering air wet-bulb temperature. at these condi- tions, the cooling tower rejects 15,000 btuih per nominal cooling tower ton.

2. cooling range - the difference in temperature betw een the hot water entering the tower and the cold water leaving the tower is the cooling range. 3. approach - the difference between the temperature of the cold water leaving the tower and the wet- bulb temperature of the air is known as the approach.
evaporation loss calculation. evaporation loss (m3/hr) = 0.00153 * recirculation rate (m3/hr) * delta t. #9. windage or drift loss: it is very difficult to ignore the drift problem in a cooling tower. drift or windage loss of cooling tower is normally provided by its manufacturer based on cooling tower design.
this system sends cooling water out of the equipment and into a pond or cooling tower, which is open to the atmosphere . here evaporation occurs, removing heat along with the evaporated water . as a result, the remaining water cools . it is then combined with makeup water, which replaces the evaporated water, and is sent through the system again .

the cooling tower water balance can be summarised in equation 1 below: fresh water makeup (m1) = evaporation and drift (m2) + bleed (m3) + splash, leaks and losses (m4) (1) within a conventional cooling tower system, water typically enters the cooling tower and is consumed in a number of areas.
in general, the most applications rely on the use of evaporative cooling tower systems, which include wet cooling towers, cooling ponds or spray ponds. the course covers 18 sections of comprehensive information on evaporative cooling towers and provides important aspects of cooling tower types, sizing, selection and performance issues. let’s

cooling tower designing is basically an iterative process. the factors that effect the selection of design l/g and consequently the fill height are: cell dimensions, water loading, air velocities across various cooling tower sections and pressure drops, and fan selection.
cooling water; that water picks up heat by passing through the process heat exchangers (figure e.l). the cooling effect occurs because some of the water evaporates into a stream of air in contact with the water within the cooling tower. the evaporation can by estimated from a heat balance around the cooling tower e = 0.001 (cr)(at) (e.l)

cooling tower systems - guidance for energy efficient operation introduction in 2000 the introduction of the pilot scheme for water cooled air conditioning in hong kong offered opportunities for building owners to lower their air conditioning operating costs through the application of cooling tower systems for commercial air conditioning systems.
furthermore, mechanical draft towers may be of forced draft or induced draft design. a forced draft tower has a fan or blower that is located where the ambient air stream enters the tower and that forces the air through the fill as shown schematically in figure 2(a). figure 2: forced draft cooling tower.(a) cooling tower (b) temperature
cooling tower calculations. by william (bill) harfst december 4, 2017. november 28, 2017. the purpose of a cooling tower is to conserve water. the heat picked up in the heat exchanger is returned to the cooling tower where it is rejected to the atmosphere by evaporative and convective cooling. the water that is evaporated at the cooling tower
