Experimental Analysis on Performance of a Counter Flow Tray Type Cooling Tower

R. Sattanathan [2]


Abstract: The main aim of this project is to increase the cooling rate by modifying the design i. e by replacing the fill material with the aluminum trays and reducing the height to provide an energy efficient. In this, use trays for the water to move horizontally in each tray and get a large surface area for the water to evaporate. Thus the height of the tower is reduced by use tray type. This cooling tower is counter-flow type. Thus understand the basic principles of cooling tower operation, types of cooling tower, various components used in cooling tower, the factors affecting the cooling tower performances and energy saving opportunities in cooling tower. A general study was made on the design consideration of cooling tower, importance of energy balance and mass balance while designing the cooling tower, influence of Wet bulb temperature in cooling tower performance, applicability of Psychometric chart in cooling tower design & formulas used for designing the cooling towers and performance calculations. The performance of counter flow tray type cooling tower such as efficiency, losses results were compared with the fill material bottle type cooling tower and also investigating the performance of counter flow tray type cooling tower in different seasons.
