Efficient Water Cooling Tower PVC Drift Eliminators
Drift eliminators remove small droplets of water that are entrained in the exhaust air to minimize the nuisance and health issues that they create if allowed to escape through the top of the tower along with the heated air. Drift eliminators are designed to create a tortuous path for the air stream. When the water droplets move through them, they are forced to change direction and impact the drift eliminator side walls, coalescing and draining back into the wet section of the cooling tower.
An extremely efficient drift eliminator system is standard on the eco-ATC evaporative condenser. The system removes entrained water droplets from the air stream to limit the drift rate to less than 0.001% of the recirculating water rate. With a low drift rate, the eco-ATC Evaporative Condenser saves valuable water and water treatment chemicals. The eco-ATC Evaporative Condenser can be located in areas where minimum water carryover is critical, such as parking lots.
The drift eliminators are constructed of an inert polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic material which effectively eliminates corrosion of these vital components. They are assembled in sections to facilitate easy removal for inspection of the water distribution system.
