The XE Series (Crossflow type)
The Mihir Polacel XE cooling tower operates according to the crossflow principle. The hot water to be cooled is fed into a closed FRP distribution pan, having holes in the bottom to equally distribute water over the cooling tower PVC fill. By evaporation and direct contact the water transfers heat to the air which is sucked in by an axial fan. The cold water is collected in a FRP basin at the bottom of the tower for recirculation.
Selection of construction materials:
Mihir Polacel has based the selection of construction materials for the towers on the requirement of complete corrosion and chemical resistance. This has been achieved through the exclusive use of PVC, glassfibre reinforced polyester and hot dipped glavanised steel.
The casing, water distribution system and air inlet Louver:
They are made of glassfibre polyester. It ensures long life and easy maintenance.
A fan hood of glassfibre reinforced polyester ensures a smooth flow of the water-vapour saturated air towards the fan. The axial fan itself is made of cast aluminium and mounted directly to a low speed electrical motor, specially developed for use in very humid environments (IP 55).
The cooling tower fill is made of PVC sheets which are suitable for a maximum water temperature of 50 Degree C . The low pressure drop of the crossflow packing causes low energy costs.
Low noise Level :
The axial fans on the XE cooling towers provide, in combination with a direct driving system and the low pressure drop of the fill, a low noise level.
Low energy consumption:
The gravity water distribution system saves pump energy.
Avoids assembly at site.
Easy to transport in a standard container:
A special feature of the XE series towers is thier size. They are designed to fit the size of the containers for transport. This saves costs of seaworthy packing for export.
