Our partner, a cement plant, installed one EWK water cooling tower for water with a high content of suspended solids.
The client showcased water with suspended solids content. Suspended solids mean that solid particles remain in suspension in water as a colloid or due to the motion of the water. This kind of issue can cause significant problems and damages to his production.
We have started with a field analysis and measurements that have revealed that the plant was located near an important dust source. Due to this fact, our sales engineers decided to select a 2,5 MW cooling tower equipped with Sulzer Splashpipe, a special fill that allows the normal functioning of the cooling tower without any risk of clogging.
The accepted inlet water values for this special fill are:
- Water temperature up to 80 C
- Hardness (Ca CO3) below 1000 mg/l
- Conductivity below 3000 μS/cm
- Suspended solids below 200 mg/l
- Dissolved solids below 2100 mg/l
This situtation usually requires a gas or fluid cooling application.
