Design and installation of mechanical, electrical and public health services a new business village, this project was the first office development in the UK to incorporate a passive heating and cooling ventilation system utilising earth ducts.
Preventing critical failures in evaporative cooling equipment
Systematic and thorough attention to the fan and motor assemblies is essential to avoid the unexpected interruption of service. Most catastrophic system failtures are easily avoidable because they are linked to a negligent lack of maintenance. Evaporative cooling equipment, like an mechanical unit of machinery, requires preventative maintenance to maximize its utility. Simple maintenance procedures provide enormous benefits to connected systems and equipment, manufacturing processes and plant personnel....
Evaporative cooling cuts energy costs
Commercial contractors utilize alternative technology in today’s buildings It is estimated that HVAC systems account for approximately 40 percent of the energy used in commercial buildings, which is why many building owners and managers are looking for ways to cut these costs. One way to do that may be to utilize evaporative cooling systems, which can be relatively inexpensive to purchase and often require much less energy than other forms of cooling. Evaporative cooling technology is already becoming...
TurbEx® COOLING TOWER - Case Study
This article is about the case study of the TurbeEx® Cooling Tower in operation at a Huhtamaki U.S. pulp & paper facility. Commissioned in late Spring 2016 this TurbEx® COOLING TOWER cools process water at a Huhtamaki U.S. pulp & paper facility using TurboScrubber® fluidized packing to ensure continuous non-clogging operation even with sticky pulp & solids laden white water. The system is integrated with the plant process control system to maintain optimum operation. Despite operating...
Monitoring once through cooling water - Case study
The Situation Power plants and paper mills use service water loops and mill water loops respectively for the cooling of lubricating, hydraulic, turbine and transformer oil. These cooling systems feature large, recirculating volumes of water which are treated with biocides, dispersants, and corrosion inhibitors. By comparison, refineries often use once through cooling water systems. The cooling water is taken from lakes, rivers, or the ocean and circulated once through the plant to cool processes. Large volumes...
Republic Steel: CapDI for Cooling Towers - Case Study
Introduction & process description Water is often a hidden cost of industrial sites and can contribute significantly to operational costs. Cooling towers are used to reject heat through the natural process of evaporation providing cooled water across a broad range of applications. Due to evaporative losses, the water remaining in the cooling tower becomes concentrated with dissolved solids that will lead to scaling and corrosion. The traditional methods of scale and corrosion control are through dosing...
