Patented - Reverse Cycle Cooling Towers (RCCT)
Saving up to 100% of water for commercial and industrial cooling tower operation is now available.
AEWC is pleased to present our Patented Reverse Cycle Cooling Tower. The RCCT will be available as new or retrofit models. As their are many cooling tower designs on the market your cooling tower will first need to be appraised so that the retrofit RCCT design compliments your existing cooling tower characteristics.
Their are a few RCCT designs which cover - space limitations, climate and available resources e.g. waste heat and cooling water.
AEWC Pty Ltd currently seeks expressions of interest from Companies to purhase the patent rights for the RCCT.
- 100% or more water savings.
- Absolute minimum chemicals.
- Can run the cooling tower at 1 cycle of concentration.
- Low chloride content means low corrosion.
- Low energy - requires cooling water source.
- Very low maintenance.
- Low hardness content
- All weather operation.
How does it all work:
The exhaust plume from cooling towers remains fairly constant and produces a saturated air parcel where the
dew point should be fairly close to the exhaust temperature, if not our dew point controller will be fitted to the system.
The dew point is a very important aspect of the RCCT as it will severely affect the amount of energy required to condense the vapour in the exhaust plume.
Because we now have the saturated air parcel at a temperature of say, 40 degrees Celsius and at a dew point of 40 degrees Celsius the vapour will start to condense on the cooler surface of the heat exchanger.
Differential pressure across the heat exchangers is a design consideration and will be designed so as not to affect the cooling tower characteristic. An additional fan will most likely be required.
Individual assessments of existing plants will need to be performed so that we can configure the most cost effective solution.
