  • An application report of a cooling water treatment in Czech Republic

    The Chvaletice Power Station in the Czech Republic regularly controls the installation of their cooling towers. The plastic constructions that form the lower part of the tower are one of the critical parts of the system. Individual boards are very rugged. Deterioration of their penetration by suspended substances and biofilm can cause total carbonate deposition, resulting in the reduced ...

  • Hot weather on its way - Check the condition of your cooling tower

    The approach of summer is a good time to check the performance and, more importantly, the physical condition of your cooling towers. After all, it’s easier to repair a tower when weather conditions don’t put a strain on its cooling capacity. A cooling tower passes air over tiny droplets or the exposed surface of a water film. In both cases, a small amount of water is vaporized, ...

  • Understanding wet bulb temperatures and how it affects cooling tower performance

    A cooling tower primarily uses latent heat of vaporization (evaporation) to cool process water. Minor additional cooling is provided by the air because of its temperature increase. Cooling tower selection and performance is based on water flow rate, water inlet temperature, water outlet temperature and ambient wet bulb temperature. Ambient wet bulb temperature and its affect on performance is the ...
