Check out the October 2021 edition of Process Cooling: In this issue, we look for ways to improve industrial refrigeration system efficiency as well as at filtration system suited for raw water intakes, adiabatic cooling, a case history about how brazed heat exchangers helped optimize a chiller design for laser cooling and much more!
To enable its use as cooling water, industrial facilities such as power, processing and manufacturing plants prefilter raw water from rivers, lakes, gulfs and coastlines to remove organic, aquatic and other solids. Insufficient removal of both large solids and small particulates such as debris, dirt and suspended solids, as well as biofouling such as organic matter from the water, can cause serious problems.
Adiabatic cooling is an eons-old method of cooling spaces using the absorption of heat by water as it changes phase from a liquid to a vapor. Ancient Egyptians took advantage of this method by hanging wet cloths in the openings of their living quarters and letting the dry desert air pass through to provide a cooling effect.
