Efficiency of spray cooling towers

Gainyllin R. F., Vlasov E. M., Fedyaev V. L.

Correlations are offered to assess the efficiency of industrial cooling towers as it varies with different design characteristics, technological specifications and environments. The results obtained by means of these correlations have been compared with the data received by conventional methods and in the field trials of the SK-1200 cooling towers. These correlations are shown to have sufficient precision for engineering analysis. Certain regularities have been found in the ways how the mentioned characteristics influence the performance of cooling towers. Recommendations are given to improve their efficiency.

Keywords: cooling towers, heat and mass transfer, temperature gradient of water, efficiency.
