Study of the comparative costs of five wet/dry cooling tower concepts

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A previous study undertaken to ascertain the economic incentives for further development of advanced dry/wet cooling towers showed that an advanced dry cooling concept using ammonia as an intermediate cooling fluid reduced the incremental cost of dry cooling by approximately 25 to 30%. This paper presents the projected costs of five alternative dry/wet concepts, one of which involves a similar use of ammonia. This study concludes that although absolute quantitative cost estimates for these cooling systems are uncertain, the relative cost studies indicate that wet/dry cooling systems using ammonia may be competitive with commercially available systems and that the deluge ... continued below

This study concludes that although absolute quantitative cost estimates for these cooling systems are uncertain, the relative cost studies indicate that wet/dry cooling systems using ammonia may be competitive with commercially available systems and that the deluge system which links dry and evaporative cooling in an ammonia system should be developed in order to provide a more accurate assessment of the system cost and reliability.
