Abstract

The cooling tower finds a variety of applications in the field of a process industries, power plant and heating ventilation and air conditioning where high heat transfer performance and high effectiveness are mostly required. There are many factors which affect the performance of counter flow cooling tower like water flow rate, air flow rate, fill porosity, water to air ratio, fouling, heat leakage in the atmosphere. There are many investigators who have worked on cooling tower by using Merkel equation and poppe’s equation to calculate effectiveness of cooling tower by considering the effect of water and air flow rate, ambient wet bulb temperature, tower characteristics. This paper aims to observe the effect of process variable on temperature of water. Such as 1. Inlet water flow 2. Inlet air velocity 3. fill porosity.
