Crossflow vs. Counterflow Cooling Towers

Library, White Papers
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.

Geareducer Lubricants

Library, White Papers
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

Library, White Papers
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.

Variable Flow over Cooling Towers

Library, White Papers
There may be significant energy savings opportunities if the cooling tower can be operated under variable flow in off-peak conditions. Variable flow is a way to maximize the effectiveness of the installed tower capacity for whatever flow the process has.

Service Alert

Library, White Papers
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.

Vibration Monitoring

Library, White Papers
Protection and monitoring of cooling tower and fluid cooler components.
