Maintaining the hot water distribution system in your cooling tower is critical to ensure optimal thermal performance and operational reliability. Regardless of the type of tower that you own or operate, ATS can help you keep the hot water distribution system in “tip-top” shape.
Hot water is distributed in a counterflow cooling tower through a system of piping and spray nozzles designed to evenly disperse the water over the heat transfer media at very low operating pressures. The spray nozzles in this system are the maintenance intensive parts of the system and to a lesser degree, the connections of lateral piping to header piping and pipe supports can also be problematic.
When spray nozzles fail, cooling tower thermal performance suffers along with damage to the heat transfer media. ATS has an improved design spray nozzle that can help prevent these failures and ensure uniform water distribution. The nozzle develops optimal water droplet size and distribution at very low operating pressure. The ATS nozzle has been rigorously tested at operating pressures far in excess of those found in operating cooling towers. When you use the ATS nozzle you can be sure of reliable water distribution system operation.
Of course, ATS can also supply the other maintenance intensive items like lateral to header connections, pipe supports and valving.
Crossflow water distribution systems are a bit more complicated than counterflow systems but fundamentally consist of the same components: piping valves and nozzles. Due to exposure to sunlight, UV deterioration, thermal expansion and a corrosive environment, crossflow components need more attention. Whether you need piping, supports, flow boxes or nozzle ATS can supply the right parts for your cooling tower.
