High Efficiency Drift Eliminators for Cooling Towers
Models CF80MAx and XF80MAx offer drift-removal efficiency and 0.0005 percent drift loss. The drift eliminators are engineered for counterflow (CF80MAx) and crossflow (XF80Max) applications, allowing maximum drift-removal efficiency and minimum pressure drop. The modules are constructed of a series of sinusoidal-shaped, corrugated PVC sheets that are mechanically assembled to mating sinusoidal structural waves, forming closed cells. These cells force the drift droplets being carried in the exiting airstream to make three distinct changes in direction. These forced changes to the airflow create centrifugal forces on the droplets. The centrifugal forces remove them from the airstream by causing them to impact the module walls, collect and drain back to the wet section of the tower. The beveled drainage-tip design reduces pressure drop by up to 25 percent (based on air velocity of 800 ft/min [4.1 m/s]) compared to a nonbeveled design.
