Product Description:

A manual to provide the basics of cooling towers, from the staff of the Marley Cooling Tower Company.


Although the world’s total fresh water supply is abundant, some areas have water usage demands that are heavily out of balance with natural replenishment. Conservation and efficient reuse of this precious and versatile resource are mandatory if such areas are to achieve proper development. And, the need for water conservation does not limit itself only to arid regions. Recognition of the detrimental environmental impact of high temperature water discharge into an estuary, whose inhabitants are accustomed to more moderate temperature levels, makes one realize that the re-cooling and reuse of water, however abundant, conserves not just that important natural resource—it conserves nature as well. One helpful means to that end is the water cooling tower.Those responsible for the specifcations, purchasing and operation of plant, station, or building cooling systems must consider many aspects beyond the primary requirement of dissipating unwanted heat. The following text is devoted to identifying the primary and peripheral considerations and offering approaches refned by some eighty years of experience in the cooling tower industry. The goal is to assure the implementation of water cooling systems which will satisfy all design and environmental requirements with sound engineering and responsible cost.This manual is not intended to be all-encompassing and thoroughly defnitive. The entire scope of cooling towers is too broad, and the technology far too advanced, to permit complete coverage in a single publication. Separate brochures by SPX Cooling Technologies, either existing or planned, cover individual topics in depth. The intent herein is to provide a level of basic knowledge which will facilitate dialogue, and understanding, between user and manufacturer.
