In general, cooling towers are thought of as the least important piece of equipment in most facilities. I’ve actually had plant managers tell me that cooling tower repairs are perpetually on the bottom of their “to-do” lists every year. As a result, over half of all the cooling towers in the world are underperforming.
The consequences of having and underperforming cooling tower are pretty straight forward. The owner of the cooling tower has to cut rates or produce less than the optimal amount as a result of the bottleneck caused by the “supply” water temps. Don’t be that guy!
Both the Variable Flow nozzle and the Spin Free nozzles have the same square pattern feature that promotes the best air to water mix. Combine that with the reduction in wall water and you have the potential to boost your cooling tower performance by 15%.
