Induced Draft Cross-flow Towers for Power Generation, Large-scale HVAC and Industrial Facilities

Short Description:

This series cooling towers are induced draft, cross-flow towers and tailored according to customer’s requirements on performance, structure, drift, power consumption, pump head and target cost.

Principle of Operation:

They are especially well suited for heavy industrial applications in power plants, fertilizer plants, petrochemical complexes and petroleum refineries and the vast majority of new towers are constructed of fire retardant fiberglass because of its high strength and fire/corrosion resistive properties. 

It’s an extremely versatile range considering the different request of layouts. An in-line tower is the standard layout for efficiency reasons, but parallel in-line, back to back, and round configurations are also options when the plot plan requires a different approach.

Round Configuration

A round configuration may be the right solution for a limited site. 

In-line Configuration

Constructing the tower in a linear way provides the arrangement with the least power consumption, including reduced fan energy consumption and lowest pumping head. Take in account of an efficient entering air access, the tower’s height and cost is minimized. 

Back-to-Back Configuration

A back-to-back tower configuration can fit within site limitations when it’s impossible for an in-line layout. Comparing with the linear arrangement, the fan energy and pumping head both increased which will lead to a higher cost but lower thermal efficiency. 

Parallel In-line Configuration

If it’s not possible to layout the towers in a single line, it’s ok to split and arrange the towers into two or more units arranged in a parallel in-line configuration considering following points: 

It will substantially reduce tower pumping head by splitting the air inlet area between two tower faces.

It may substantially reduce tower cost made possible by a reduced tower height and gained efficiency.

It reduces the fan energy by regaining lost efficiency with two air inlets.

It reduces installed length by utilizing the area between towers for pump pits, piping, and access provisions.

The more reliable thermal capacity by cutting the air draws through the falling water in half.

Easier maintenance and staged operation by providing the facility with easily isolated towers
