Forced draft cooling towers provide powerful cooling technology to many industrial plants worldwide.
Forced Draft Cooling Towers
Industrial plants and factories continually opt for these cooling tower models for their many benefits. These towers remove low-potential heat that is generated during the production process. Hot water combined with a counterflow of air will result in a transfer of heat in the cooling fill. These models are especially popular in the paper and chemical industries.
Components Of Forced Draft Cooling Towers
These are the components that make up a forced draft model:
- Fan stack.
- Fan with drive.
- Drift eliminators.
- Cooling fill.
- Outer shell.
- Water distribution system.
- Water basin.
Forced Draft Vs Induced Draft Cooling Towers
How do forced draft towers differ from induced draft towers? Induced draft towers will have a fan atop the tower, which pulls the air upward. The fans will then induce the hot and moist air out of the discharge. A powerful exit air velocity then reduces any possible recirculation within the tower. The main goal of induced models is to eliminate any discharged air flowing back inward to the air intake area.
Forced draft cooling towers will feature the fan at the base of tower, instead. Both axial and centrifugal fans will then create the overpressure.
Forced Draft Tower Features
- Lower noise levels.
- Dry air stream drive.
- Little space required for installation.
- Ease of maintenance.
Induced Draft Tower Features
- Low-absorbed capacity.
- Humid air stream.
- Higher noise levels.
