  • Fertilize the ocean, cool the planet?

    Original story at MIT News Like the leaves of New England maples, phytoplankton, the microalgae at the base of most oceanic food webs, photosynthesize when exposed to sunlight. In the process, they absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, converting it to carbohydrates and oxygen. Many phytoplankton species also release dimethyl ...

  • Variable speed drive on cooling system

    Typically cooling systems do not have flow control on individual exchangers, most systems I have encountered just don't spend the money, they set the flow and forget it. By changing the flow, there are significant changes to the flow regimes of exchangers elsewhere on the system, exchangers located well above grade become starved of water as the pump delivers less flow. The other aspect of ...

  • Reducing Environmental Effects of Cooling Towers

    The implementation of strict environmental regulations worldwide calls for mine operators and managers to take immediate action to reduce the environmental effects of their operations. Cooling towers, a crucial component of the mining process, have naturally come under scrutiny in recent years and it is therefore vital that ...

  • Heat stress: Is the Westersingel cooling rotterdam?

    Deltares and Delft University of Technology are carrying out measurements in and around the Westersingel in Rotterdam (the Netherlands), to assess the effect of evaporation on the temperature of the surrounding area. The Westersingel is located in a densely built-up area, where high temperatures occur. However, the water from the Westersingel provides cooling. The measurements will be carried out ...

  • White paper: Cooling electrical panels in waste water treatment applications

    Over the past few decades, the use of sophisticated electronics for automation and process controls as well as transformers, VFDs and PLCs have become commonplace in NEMA enclosures.

  • Cool comfort technology with desert hot application

    Technology devised in Christchurch to help improve comfort in outdoor urban settings, is now being used in the Middle East for the exact opposite reason from that originally intended - to keep people cool in the scorching desert environment, rather than warm in New Zealand’s more temperate climate. Engineering firm Aurecon has created an urban comfort assessment model where they ...

  • Refurbishment Extends Cooling Tower Life by 20 Years

    An industrial cooling tower’s life expectancy is between 15 and 25 years, yet it is not always necessary to install a completely new system; old cooling towers can be refurbished or upgraded at a fraction of the cost. Refurbishment or upgrades can bring a cooling tower’s components up to original factory specifications, extending the system’s lifespan for another 15 to 20 years. ...
