-160

WATER CATCHER -160
for cooling towers

The water catchers made of profile PVC elements of -160 type are used in fan and chimney-type cooling towers and are designed to capture droplets of circulating water contained in the air, which comes out the cooling tower.

The block of water catcher is a separator, i.e. a set of profile elements placed parallel to each other and fixed together with connecting elements.

The water catcher of -160 type is manufactured in accordance with technical specifications 25.2-20054481.002-2001.

The following notation conventions are used in the table:
a
 - the distance between the profile elements in the block, mm.
n - the number of profile elements in the block;
w - air speed before water catcher, m/sec;
q - value of droplet entrainment, % from q
q
- irrigation density m3/(m2 hour)
V - coefficient of aerodynamic air-flow differential

During the operation of the cooling tower, wet saturated air with water droplets passes through the water catcher blocks, which are located above the water distribution system. The precipitation of water droplets occurs on the surface of profile elements of water catcher, the gravity forces these water droplets to flow back down to the cooling tower.

WATER CATCHER  -160

-160 TYPE

The water catcher made of profile PVC elements of -160 type has a high catching capacity at the minimum aerodynamic resistance. Its use helps to minimize unrecoverable loss of circulating water and to significantly improve the ecological environment, as there may be toxic constituents in circulating water.

The assembling of irrigator blocks is simple, convenient and takes little time, it is performed at the installation site.
