For decades, cooling towers have provided an efficient means of cooling industrial process loops by providing the lowest operating temperatures available. At the same time, through the years, water-based cooling systems have evolved.
Globally, regardless of the industry, water and energy savings are becoming more important. This article explores the benefits of adiabatic cooling by looking at a new installation at a metal processing company that was scheduled to go online in late 2019. A case history helps illustrate how other industrial processors might take advantage of this technology.
Evaporative cooling has been around for centuries. Also called adiabatic cooling (particularly in Europe), evaporative cooling is the earliest form of air-side cooling known to man. In spite of that, it also is probably the least understood — and sometimes maligned — solution to cooling.
Model M2L minimizes downtime in case of a failed power cell. The modular design of the inverter allows the operator to follow a few steps to replace a failed power cell with a spare power cell and have it back up and running quickly.
The 25th IIR International Congress of Refrigeration (ICR 2019), which was held August 24-30 in Montreal, welcomed over 850 participants from 45 countries. The event also welcomed over 650 papers, nine workshops, 10 IIR Commission and Working Group meetings and four technical tours.
Sound test data helps manufacturers meet noise level requirements. Multi-Wing’s white paper offers equipment manufacturers an understanding of the challenges associated with sound measurements in field tests.
For those involved in the process industries, three shows this fall offer a chance to see new and upgraded products firsthand, learn about emerging technologies and network with others in the industry.
Thirty years ago, heat transfer fluid (HTF) manufacturers would sell virgin fluids at inflated prices and dispose of the used thermal fluids without regard for the potential of remediating the used fluid. Times have changed.
