Wet cooling systems

Why wet cooling?

Wet cooling offers an outstanding performance by taking full advantage of the ambient air humidity. Wet cooling, also called evaporative cooling, enables to obtain a re-cooled water temperature at least 20°C lower as compared to a radiator. As turbine output and hence power plant output increases by 0.3 to 1 % per degreeof better cooling, wet cooling is a technology that can generate outstanding fuel saving and carbon emission reduction.

 

Cooling towers and environment

In the collective unconscious, a cooling tower is more a symbol of the industry than of the environment; a natural draft cooling tower is the typical representation of a nuclear plant.  However, a well-designed cooling tower avoids production losses and therefore reduces the energy consumption of a process. Effective drift eliminators diminish the drift losses and therefore the water make-up. The temperature of a cooled water rejected in nature is such that environmental consequences are minimized
