What Is Cooling Tower Fill Material?
The fill section is the heart of any cooling tower. Sometimes called packing, filling, or baffles, this is the area where water and air mix to achieve the cooling effect. A cooling tower can only perform if the Cooling Tower Fill Material is in good condition, providing the greatest possible heat transfer surface.
If you have never worked in a cooling tower you may be inclined to think that the heart of a water cooling tower is the water. While the objective of a cooling tower revolves around water, the true root of any cooling tower is the fill.
Fill, or wet deck or surface, is a medium used in cooling towers to increase the surface area of the tower. This enlarged surface area allows for utmost contact between the air and the water, which allowing greater evaporation rates.
Film Fill vs. Splash Fill
Basically there are two types of fill: film fill and splash fill. Film fill is made up of sheets of material that the water travels across. Splash fill is designed to disrupt the water and cause, just as the name suggests, splashing. Pieces of fill are assembled together to create bigger blocks which, in turn, are used to create a multitude of thickness and heights to adapt to the particular cooling tower they will be used for.
Patterns in fill, usually crinkles or folds, are called channels or flutes. Flutes typically are designed so that they force the water to take the lengthiest route along them as possible. Smaller flutes are more cost effective because they allow for more capacity per cubic foot. However, larger flutes are good for dirty water applications, such as steel mills. Larger flutes become clogged less often than the smaller ones in these types of applications. Larger flutes sacrifice efficiency, but they also allow more dirty water to be processed.
In excessively dirty water applications, a bar type fill is used. This type of fill allows for much larger waste and debris to pass through the cooling tower because the fill takes the form of splash bars throughout the tower. This is the one of the least practical fills, bar type fill allows dirty water to be refined and makes it easier to clean.
