FRP Cooling Tower Is Prone To The Main Part Of Icing
Jul 20, 2018

FRP cooling towers operate in winter at temperatures below -10 °C, often resulting in freezing due to design defects or poor maintenance management. Freezing not only has a destructive effect on the cooling tower structure, but also affects the normal operation of the cooling tower. Therefore, the antifreeze problem is one of the issues that must be paid attention to in the maintenance and management of cooling towers in cold regions.

The main part of the FRP cooling tower that is prone to icing:

1. Exhaust cooling towers, where icing occurs first at the air inlet or louver, while cross-flow cooling towers are more severely icing under the same conditions than counter-flow cooling towers.

2. A blast-type cooling tower that produces local icing on the air inlet or fan blades.

3. The open cooling tower also produces icing at the air inlet (louver). Under the same conditions, the open drip is more serious than the open sprinkler icing.

4. When the cooling tower is stopped in winter in cold regions, it is easy to form ice in the water inlet pipe and the sump if anti-freezing measures are not taken.
