The Cooling Technology Institute (CTI) issued an industry-wide call for papers on technology developments related to wet cooling towers, air-cooled condensers, dry coolers, indirect cooling, hybrid systems and cooling water treatment.
As water resources become increasingly stressed by drought and intensifying demand from competing uses, industries that use significant quantities of water will face greater pressure to
adopt water-efficiency strategies that can decrease fresh-water withdrawals. One approach that facilities can adopt to reduce their draw from these supplies — thus reducing stress on drinking
water reserves — is to use alternative makeup water sources.
The cooling tower, which is certified by the Cooling Technology Institute (CTI), achieves the lowest measurable drift rate, down to 0.0005 percent of circulating water flow, so less water escapes the tower.
On Demand Cooling towers operate under extreme conditions and are frequently exposed to a variety of weather-related elements. As might be expected, a consistent and regularly scheduled maintenance regiment can make a significant impact on the life expectancy of the cooling tower’s mechanicals.
The International Conference is a great opportunity to bring together people from Industry, Utilities and Academics and Research Centers involved in Air Cooling Process activities such as Research, Development and Operation.
