WELLTECH developed the cellular drift eliminator in the 2012s. No other eliminator could come close to our eliminator’s low drift rate and low pressure drop.
Now, virtually every eliminator is a nesting cellular PVC type design. Our Eliminators are more advanced design that meets or exceeds today’s demanding specifications for drift emissions without sacrificing fan horsepower
The eliminator discharge angle is important enough to warrant two separate eliminator designs—one for crossflow and one for counterflow towers. Tests show the air direction leaving the eliminator is extremely important—imperfect designs create additional work for the fan.
This means either increased fan horsepower—or reduced cooling tower performance. The crossflow version features drainage slots within the eliminator pack to insure trapped drift is returned to the wet side of the cooling tower.
Low drift rate is the primary goal of eliminator design. Our Eliminators boasts typical drift rates of .005% of the total GPM. Lower drift rates are available depending upon tower configuration.
WELLTECH eliminators require little or no maintenance. If it becomes necessary to clean them, care must be taken not to physically damage the PVC eliminator packs. For loose deposits of silt, fibers, etc., a water spray can be used, provided the spray nozzle is kept moving continually and the water pressure is not excessive
The eliminators can be supported at spans as high as 1800mm. Made out of UV resistant UPVC confirming to standards set by CTI-STD136, the T Type drift eliminator uses the 3-pass system to air efficiently out of the drift eliminator while restricting the drift loss to less than 0.002% of circulating water.
ADVANTAGES OF T TYPE DRIFT ELIMINATOR
- Standard depth of 146-mm makes is easier for the designer.
- Lightweight structure and principle of construction offers a low pressure drop across the blade.
- Can be transported in nested form and assembled easily at site, saving transportation costs.
