Cooling Tower Long Term Storage
When placing a cooling tower into long term storage (generally considered one month or longer) there are some basic but critical maintenance steps.
Understanding Plume Point
Visible plume is a cloud of pure water vapor produced by a cooling tower. It occurs when warm, moist discharge air is cooled by the ambient air.
Crossflow vs. Counterflow Cooling Towers
Crossflow and counterflow are two ways to describe how air moving through a cooling tower interacts with the process water being cooled and their fundamental differences.
It is critical to the operational life of a transmission to utilize a satisfactory lubricant that includes the correct viscosity grade and additives.
Cooling Tower Performance – Drift
All evaporative cooling products, where air and water come into direct contact, experience some level of drift. Drift is defined as liquid water droplets from the recirculating flow entrained in the discharge air stream.
Maintenance procedures that prevent amplification and dissemination of Legionella and other airborne bacteria should be formulated and implemented BEFORE systems are operated and continued regularly thereafter to avoid the risk of sickness or death.
