Assessment Of Existing Galvanic Corrosion Protection Systems Javier Balma and Dilip Choudhuri, Walter P Moore 2011
Abstract: This paper will examine the protocol to assess an existing galvanic corrosion protection system installed on the veil of a hyperbolic cooling tower. In addition it will discuss the need to have reference cells for ongoing monitoring of a galvanic jacketed system for the columns elements of a cooling tower. NDE and visual evaluation techniques will be described in detail. We will use a case study to exemplify our evaluation protocol.
With "New-Age Brands" Into a "Brand-New Age" Leo Vonk, Bis Both Industrial Services BV 2000
Abstract: Having had trouble with the mechanical equipment in two thirty-cell cooling towers for more than 20 years, Matrai Power Plant in Hungary decided in 1990 to replace all former "solutions" with one "Quality Set" for the different performances. The only restriction was to maintain the 18.5-kw/725 rpm electric motors. This paper summarizes the steps, which had to be taken technically, and "organizationally" to close consecutive contracts over a period of more than 7 years and how "things" drastically changed in Hungary over this period of time.
Circular Hybrid Cooling Towers Andreas Streng, Ph.D., Balcke-Duerr Energietechnik GmbH 2000
Abstract: Hybrid cooling towers of the classical design with separate wet and dry sections have constituted a proven technology in the recooling field for approximately the past two decades. The round type of construction however is only used for high thermal performances, in particular for power stations, and is at present less well known. Another feature of this type of cooling tower is the separate machine sets allocated to the wet section and dry section respectively as well as automatic operation to an optimized overall performance. The advantageous features of the round type of hybrid cooling tower compared to the cell-type construction are less space required, lower operating cost, and lower power consumption. In the future the round construction will therefore increasingly replace the currently predominant cell type construction for large power station applications.
Operating Feedback of French Cooling Towers Civil Work and Equipment (TP-90-03) P. Coic, Electricite De France 1990
Abstract: As the owner of twenty six natural draught wet cooling towers, EDF has set up a specific organization aimed at monitoring the evolution of civil works and equipment. The subject of this presentation is to explain EDF's operating feedback and the problems encountered, and to describe the methods used and the studies carried out. The main concerns are the behavior of the shell, the availability during winter periods and the ageing of the heat exchange equipment.

The Power Industry's Requirements for Cooling Towers (TP-81A) Hugh C. Crutchfield, Utah Power and Light Company 1970
Abstract: This paper will deal with projected increases in kilowatt-hours in the continental United States, analyzing where the largest power complexes are expected to be built as dictated by fuel and water availability, load centers, air quality criteria, thermal effects on receiving waters, aesthetics, and other siting considerations. The methods available for dissipation of waste heat will be discussed, including the role of cooling towers in power plant heat cycles. Other matters for consideration are the need for better information on writing specifications and the need for better information on operating problems, maintenance costs, and performance.
Proving Power Plant Towers (TP-82A) James L. Willa, Lilie-Hoffmann Cooling Towers, Inc. 1970
Abstract: No matter how well a cooling tower is built, if it does not cool the water to the specified conditions, then increased operating costs for the unit involved are incurred from the very beginning. It is of particular importance, as the size and cost of these units continue to increase such as in the case of the natural draft towers, that stringent field performance testing be maintained to assure guaranteed performance. Therefore, proper testing procedure with proper instruments, conducted by qualified personnel, is of essential importance in maintaining and improving the cooling tower industry as we proceed into the 70's, a period of greatly increase concern with both air and water pollution.
