Necessity of Air /Dry / Coil Cooling Tower

Water is the most essential element of our life, About 97 percent of that is stored in ocean. Of the remaining 3%, 2% are frozen ermanently as ice. What is left is what we have to work with. And this precious and meager amount needs a lot of attention to perform its function properly in the machines of civilization. Water plays a great role in industries. It is used as a coolant in various machineries. In water cooling towers like FRP Tower or Timber Tower, huge loss of water due to drift, evaporation, spray loss and blow down. It is now abundantly clear that water charges will go on rising at well beyond inflation rates. So for that we are introducing the Dry Cooling Tower / Coil Cooling tower for save the water.

Main difference between Dry and FRP is,

Dry cooling tower / Coil Cooling Tower

It is a closed loop system water & Air not mix directly. Eg- Radiator in cars

Wet cooling tower

It’s a open loop system water & Air mix directly. Its have two types

1. Mechanical Draft towers
2. Natural Draft towers

Mechanical draft towers

Mechanical draft towers are available in the following airflow arrangements:

1. Counter flows induced draft.
2. Counter flow forced draft.
3. Cross flow induced draft.

In the counter flow induced draft design, hot water enters at the top, while the air is introduced at the bottom and exits at the top. Both forced and induced draft fans are used.In cross flow induced draft towers, the water enters at the top and passes over the fill. The air, however, is introduced at the side either on one side (single-flow tower) or opposite sides (double-flow tower). An induced draft fan draws the air across the wetted fill and expels it through the top of the structure.

Natural draft towers

Natural draft towers use very large concrete chimneys to introduce air through the media. Due to the large size of these towers, they are generally used for water flow rates above 45,000 m3/hr. These types of towers are used only by utility power stations.

Coil cooling system is a heat exchanger with extended fins.

It cools the hot water and maintains it at a particular level. It has the fan and motor to cool the water. It is an air-cooled heat exchanger.

Special features:

  • Coil cooling tower is air-cooled equipment, so there is no need of water. Therefore, you need not worry about the water conception.
  • There is fan and motor is the only Mechanical equipment in the tower, so it is maintenance free.
  • It is closed circuit so no chance to mix of dust, fly, living organisms and dirt with process water.
  • You can erect the cooling tower at any were, do not worry about the water scarcity.
  • The air is the cooling media so there is no corrosion problem.
  • There are no any chances for scale formation so need not worry about the descaling.

Technical sheet:

  • Our Coil cooling towers are fabricated in heavy channels and using fiber materials for panels.
  • The quality copper tubes with level wound coils is used.
  • There is Galvanized steel frame provides stacking and shipping support and protection against tube damage.
  • Copper tubes are mechanically expanded with coolers. This procedure provides smooth inner tube surface so there is no chance for pressure drop.
  • The heavy wall steel pipes are using for inlet and outlet. We provided the good brazed joint for all connections so it is leak proof.
  • We are testing the equipment with air and water upto 750-PSI. We have provided convenient vent connections.
  • We are using IP 55 class motors and aerodynamically balanced axial Flow fans in Coil cooling towers.

Method of connection:

The hot water (from the processing) is connecting to the inlet of the tower. It is cooled, and then the cold water from the outlet of the Coil cooling tower is connected to the pump, which pumps the water to the equipment.

Advantage Of Coil Cooling Tower:

  • No water consumption in Coil cooling system after first charge of water, there is hardly any necessity of water. The water is being circulated in the closed circuit system is not exposed to the atmosphere for any loss or evaporation.
  • No scale formation in Coil cooling system. As the water filled in the Heat Exchanger is already clean. This water is being circulated repeatedly, without any evaporation, therefore the Heat Exchanger is always scale free and there is no need for cleaning of tubes.
  • It saves more electricity during mild weather. The Fan motors are save substantial amount of electricity, during winter season, cool nights and under mild weather conditions. The Fan motors switching system can be made automatic with interfacing thermostat in the water line by a simple arrangement.
  • Water softening plant is not required. Because once the drinking water is filled in the coil cooling tower there is no consumption of water at all. This kind of water is easily available everywhere.
  • There is maintenance cost is very negligible. The external cleaning / washing of Heat transfer coils may be needed after about three months or once a year depending upon atmospheric conditions.
  • The dirt may accumulate at finned surface heat transfer coils in bad weather conditions during storm of dust in the air. This dust / dirt can be washed with water pressure hose like washing a car radiator or it can be cleaned with high pressure air if available.
  • No duration of Engine at peak load conditions. The Coil cooling tower are selected for operation at highest summer ambient temperature conditions, therefore full power can be generated at peak summer conditions without any problem.
