Adiabatic Cooling Towers
For decades, many plastics processors have relied on open-loop cooling towers to meet the bulk of their process cooling requirements. These structures typically cycle warm, process-return water through baffles to expose it to ambient air. As a portion of the warm water evaporates into the air, the rest is cooled as it falls back into the cooling tower reservoir, ready for recirculation.
For all of its simplicity and effectiveness, however, tower-based process cooling systems have their costs. Now, an increasing number of processors are recognizing the potential of adiabatic cooling towers, a closed-circuit cooling system design that dramatically reduces water usage, energy, and maintenance costs and evaporation, while they are cooled by the ambient air.
