    • Cooling Towers - Energy Conservation and Money Making Mechanisms 

      Burger, R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1981)
      The utilization of colder water conserves energy, creates profits, increases product output. In an effort to obtain greater efficiencies and conserve both energy and dollars, all too many engineers neglect the potential ...
    • Cooling Towers Make Money 

      Burger, R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1995-04)
      Question:-Why is the low bidder system a sacred cow? If contractors understand, by specifications, that the second low bidder will be awarded the contract all bidders will do their best to provide 100% performing equipment. ...
    • Cooling Towers, Energy Conservation Machines 

      Burger, R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1980)
      Cooling towers, in all too many industrial plants, are often the neglected units of the process chain which are hidden bonanzas for energy conservation and dollar savings. By lowering the entire systems temperature by the ...
    • Cooling Towers, Energy Conservation Strategies 

      Burger, R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1983)
      Cooling towers, because of their seeming simplicity, are usually orphans of the facilities operation. We are all aware that cooling towers are the step-children of the chemical process plant, electric power generating ...
    • Cooling Towers, The Debottleneckers 

      Burger, R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1998-04)
      Power generating plants and petro-chemical works are always expanding. An on-going problem is to identify and de-bottle neck restricting conditions of growth. The cooling tower is a highly visible piece of equipment. Most ...
    • Cooling Towers, The Neglected Energy Resource 

      Burger, R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1987-09)
      Loving care is paid to the compressors, condensers, and computer programs of refrigeration and air conditioning systems. When problems arise, operators and engineers run around in circles with expensive "fixes" , ...
    • Energy (Cost) Savings by Zero Discharge in Cooling Towers 

      Matson, J. V.; Gardiner, W. M.; Harris, T. G.; Puckorius, P. R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1982)
      Maximum reuse of cooling tower blowdown by the incorporation of a sidestream softening system to recycle water can allow for significant savings in energy costs for industry. The system design parameters described in this ...
    • Hydraulic Cooling Tower Driver- The Innovation 

      Dickerson, J. A. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1987-09)
      One of the weaknesses of present day cooling tower drives are fan wrecks caused by shaft couplings breaking, gear box malfunctions due to inadequate lubrication, gear tooth wear, and inaccessibility for inspection and ...
    • Improving the Water Efficiency of Cooling Production System 

      Maheshwari, G.; Al-Hadban, Y.; Al-Taqi, H. H.; Alasseri, R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 2010)
      For most of the time, cooling towers (CTs) of cooling systems operate under partial load conditions and by regulating the air circulation with a variable frequency drive (VFD), significant reduction in the fan power can ...
    • The Modern Energy Savings Route 

      Smith, M. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1987-09)
      In most operations, cooling towers are not purposely overlooked by Plant Personnel. However, the lack of knowledge about their importance prevents energy managers from making intelligent, informed decisions. This paper ...
