Open Evaporative Cooling Systems are designed for simple operation and maintenance.
Typically a water-to-water heat exchanger is used for heat transfer between cooling tower, furnace and power supply. Open Evaporative Cooling Systems allow for the possibility of dual spray pumps and heat exchangers and can be used for both de-ionized and non-deionized systems. With these systems multiple closed systems can be cooled using a single tower. Advantages of these systems include:
- Lower costs: The tower and heat exchanger package is typically about half the cost of a traditional closed industrial tower.
- Capacity flexibility: By using a plate type heat exchanger these systems provide the flexibility needed to add or remove plates.
- Ease of maintenance: The plate type heat exchanger can be easily opened and cleaned to maintain optimum efficiency.
Larger systems often require coldwell tanks which can be supplied by either the customer or by Inductotherm. Inductotherm-supplied coldwell tanks are easy maintenance, low investment and excellent for cooling year round.
