Delta DFC-60 Series industrial cooling towers utilize the induced draught counter flow principle of operation. Heated water enters via the hot water inlet passing through perforated branch pipes spreading the water evenly by the splash caps. Water is distributed over the heat exchange fill. Water flows as a thin film downward through the fill coming into direct contact with ambient air traveling upwards in a counter flow direction.
Water cooling is affected by heat transfer to the air in the form of evaporation and convention. To prevent carry â€“ over of water droplets by the fan, drift eliminators are mounted above the water distribution. The drift eliminator controls drift loss to less than 0.02 % of water in circulation.
