High Efficiency cooling tower drift eliminator is a nesting cellular PVC type design. This cooling tower
drift eliminator is a more advanced design that meets or exceeds today’s demanding specifications for drift emissions without sacrificing fan horsepower. Now drift rates are reduced to half of the original cooling tower eliminator with equivalent pressure drop.
The cooling tower drift eliminator discharge angle is important enough to warrant two separate eliminator designs—one for crossflow and one for counterflow towers. Tests show the air direction leaving the eliminator is extremely important—imperfect designs create additional work for the fan.
This means either increased fan horsepower—or reduced cooling tower performance. The crossflow version features drainage slots within the eliminator pack to insure trapped drift is returned to the wet side of the cooling tower.
Low drift rate is the primary goal of cooling tower eliminator design. Low drift rates are the primary goal of eliminator designs with this cooling tower drift eliminator yielding typical drift rates of .0005% of the total gpm. Lower drift rates may be achievable depending upon tower configuration.
This cooling tower drift eliminators require little or no maintenance. If it becomes necessary to clean them, care must be taken not to physically damage the PVC eliminator packs. For loose deposits of silt, fibers, etc., a water spray can be used, provided the spray nozzle is kept moving continually and the water pressure is not excessive (recommend less than 30 psi).
