Removing Heat and Stabilizing Temperature: The Importance of Reliable Cooling Systems

Removing Heat and Stabilizing Temperature: The Importance of Reliable Cooling Systems


Removing heat and stabilizing temperature is important for any business owner regarding their energy usage. Water and Waste Digest reports that the combination of compact heat exchangers and cooling towers provides great use for businesses.

For example, many large processing plants have remote satellite facilities. These facilities require smaller, independent cooling packages that may be best served by a compact, factory-assembled cooling tower and a small-footprint, economical heat exchanger.

The power generation of these appliances utilizes a lot of energy. In a coal-fired power plant, cooling tower systems have a circulation rate of about 71,600 cubic meters an hour. That is 315,000 gallons of use per minute.

The heat energy required to raise a pound of water one degree is called a British Thermal Unit (BTU). The heat can build up very quickly within HVAC cooling towers because some fluids are abrasive. Having a cooling tower shell designed with high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic to keep liquid out is important because it can protect both the power generation and the cooling mechanism within the tower. In addition, this engineered plastic decreases risk of corrosion due to environmental factors.

Power generation and heat buildup can negatively affect the entire cooling system. Simply replacing the piping can discharge blowdown water can provide up to a two percent increase in the energy efficiency of any HVAC cooling system.

Delta Cooling Towers provides a 20-year warranty, making their products extremely dependable. Tower assembly and installation is also a quick and easy process.
