When drought or extra hot weather sets in, or as environmental restrictions increase, many plants that depend on once-through cooling water become restricted by thermal discharge limits.
There are three things we can do to help you get back within the guidelines:
- We pump a portion of the hot water from the discharge canal, cool it off, and mix it with the remaining water until it is within the permitted limit.
- We remove a portion of the hot water from the discharge canal, cool it off, and return it to the plant intake, reducing the plant’s overall consumption of its cooling source.
- We completely isolate the plant from the once-through water source and place it on a cooling tower that is unrestricted by discharge limits.
We can engineer and install a cooling tower system optimised for any plant in just days.
