Plume abatement technology can improve cooling tower efficiency, conserve water and reduce unwanted water vapor plumes when integrated with one company’s field-erected counterflow cooling towers.

SPX Cooling Technologies says that its ClearSky technology can be used in many cooling tower installations, including data centers and power generation plants. The integrated system uses a series of PVC heat exchanger modules in the tower plenum to condense the moisture in ambient air before it exits the tower to reduce the visible plume.

Plume from a cooling tower can created visibility and safety issues in locations where visibility is critical.
