Modular Cooling Towers

A modular cooling towers assembly is provided that comprises at least one cooling tower module having extendible legs capable of supporting the assembly when fully extended. When more than one cooling tower module is used in the assembly, adjacent modules are attached together at their respective frames. A single exit plenum chamber is placed over the joined modules and a single fan in the exit plenum chamber causes an air intake from an air entrance plenum chamber at the bottom of the modules upwardly past the fill sheets and out the exit plenum chamber and fan cowl. The cooled liquid falls into a common collection basin in which the extended legs of the modules are standing.

General Features

Design

Evaporative (FRP) Cooling towers are of vertical induced draft counterflow design with uniform water distribution and optimal heat transfer. Towers can be installed independent of wind direction.

Motors

The motors are totally enclosed (IP55), flange type, 415 V, 3 ph, 50 Hz, induction weather proof with SS304 extended shaft and are specially designed for cooling tower application.

Casing

The tower casing of Modular Cooling Towers is made of tough fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) and has sufficient structural strength to withstand high wind velocities and vibrations. UV – stabilized resin is used along with gel coat for longer life. It is resistant to local impacts and even if slight damage occurs, local repairs can easily be done. The portion of casing housing fill and eliminator has a round cross section. The water collection sump, also of FRP, is leak proof & avoids water spillage.

Fill

The fill is of rigid Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) and is of honeycomb design with very large contact surface area. The fill splits the air and water into several streams, increasing the time of contact and also heat transfer between water and air. The fill is in modules and is packed in the tower casing without any cutting for curves. The air pressure drop through the fill is negligible. The fills are available with flute height of 6mm, 12mm, and 19mm with sheet thickness of 1mm and 1.2mm.

SCSP Nozzles

The performance of cooling tower greatly depends upon the water distribution over the fills. SCSP nozzles distribute water evenly through a wide spray angle without any dry pockets. They are lightweight and reduce the frequency of clogging. The Solid Cone Square Pattern (SCSP) nozzles produce a solid cone spray of water that is distributed in a square pattern onto the fills.

Drift Eliminator

Reduces carry over losses of water. The eliminator is of rigid PVC (Applicable for square type cooling tower). The individual drift eliminators of S-shaped corrugated sheets are bonded with subsequent layers to create the structure. The entire area is thus divided into several fine S shaped mini zones each removing water droplets on the entire surface of the cell.

Sprinkler

Automatic rotary sprinkler system made of Nylon 66 material, with rotary head and sprinkler pipe distributes the hot water over the entire space of the filler. Sprinkler pipes are non-clogging, require low pressure to operate and assures uniform water flow with minimal operating pump head. The FRP eliminators attached to sprinkler pipe are specifically designed for low pressure drop and minimises the drift loss of water.

Axial Fan

Specially designed energy efficient fans are of induced-draft axial type with adjustable pitch. Material chosen are non corrosive of plastic, FRP or aluminium alloy. The high efficiency design ensures low running cost and the lowest possible noise level. Fan blade pitch is factory set and dynamically balanced.
