3.1 AIM OF WORK: Effect is boosted towards studying the cooling towers to be a good reference for chemical engineering to know how cooling tower work and how make a good benefit from it. The primary task of the cooling tower is to reject heat to the atmosphere. They represent a relatively inexpensive and dependable means of removing low grade heat from cooling water. 3.2 PROBLEM SUMMERY: There are several problems in cooling tower which is given as below:- Air In The Condenser Loop And Poor Design Absence of Side Air Louvers and Open Basins In conventional cooling tower we don’t get much more range and approach Corrosion in towers Maintenance problem in forced draught cooling tower Ice formation in the cold weather 3.3 PROBLEM SOLUTION:…show more content…
The tower is in continuous contact with the water. It is a structure fabricated from a mild steel sheet of 1 mm thickness. Mild steel is used for the following reasons: It has low density and fairly good tensile strength High melting point Due to its high ductility it can be easily shaped by a variety of methods Lesser overall weight 4.1.2 Tower Base:- Material: Mild Steel (40 cm × 40 cm, Height 15 cm) The two main functions of the base are: The base acts as an intermediate chamber between the tower and the collecting tank. The cooling air enters the tower through the base. The base is a rectangular box made of 1 mm thick mild steel. Air enters the base through the side and water exits the base through the bottom. The pipe is order to provide easy passage of water from the tower to the water collection tank. Reasons for using mild steel: It is easily machine able and weld able. It can withstand a lot of cold working. It is fairly soft, highly tough and
