Abstract

Working efficiency of cooling towers has been analyzed with the aim of detecting the change of their cooling efficiency during operation, as well as effect of organizational and construction decisions on cooling efficiency of the towers. Researches were conducted by comparison of actual temperature of water cooled in cooling towers with calculated value of the temperature. It has been found out that cooling efficiency of cooling tower worsens after continuous service because of disorder of tower flushing uniformity. Cooling efficiency of cooling towers can be increased by increasing the flushing area, as well as by diminishing unorganized leakage of cooling water.
