Heat Transfer Basics Keep Cooling Towers Running

Posted February 28, 2016 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Considering how critical cooling towers are for heat transfer in facilities, one would think that they are carefully maintained. But often the lack of cleaning and preventive maintenance lead to equipment failures and interrupt production. To help keep cooling towers running,Engineering 360 offers a three-part series that starts with heat transfer fundamentals, continues into design features that maximize heat transfer, and concludes with chemistries for keeping harmful organisms like algae and fungi out of cooling systems.

Fine for improving efficiency but don't forget Legionnaires disease - contaminated cooling towers are a breading ground for Legioella. A killer didease that spreads from open towers to whoever is downwind.
