    BASIC COMPONENTS OF COOLING TOWER


    Most modern cooling towers are built with treated wood, cedar, cypress,Red wood or plastic because these materials are resistant to the negative effects of water.


    As hot process water returns to the tower, it enters the water distribution header, which is a pipe located at the top of most towers, from here water is sprayed or allowed to fall down Into the tower over the splash bars and fill.


    The splash bars direct the downward flow of water and increase the surface area available for air-water contact. Also it directs the air (Also called as fill )

    Drift eliminators prevent water from being blown or sucked out of the tower. This type of water loss is called drift loss or windage loss. Makeup water is added to replace water that has been lost

    Cooling towers use fans to push air into the system or to pull air out of the system. Cooling towers have air intake louvers, located on the side of the tower to direct airflow.
