Air Coolers at ME Global Glycol Facility – Prentiss, Alberta
The poplar fluff screens installed around the motor support frame were significantly restricting air flow to the cooler.
Reduce the effects of clogging by the poplar fluff and to make it easier to clean the screens.
Install Galebreaker screens around the perimeter which will allow more airflow.
Screens were installed in 2019 delivering a series of benefits:
- much bigger surface area to minimize impact of poplar fluff
- improve aerodynamics of air flow into the fan
- easy removal of screens for cleaning and maintenance access
- minimize hot air recirculation (we did not notice any hot air recirculation during the test, but there was very light wind at the time
The support structure overall foot print is roughly 12′ wide x 26′ long and is 8′ off the ground.
“We protected the screen from anything rubbing it and it doesn’t appear to be susceptible to damage in any way. We were quite impressed with the quality of the product as well as instruction detail and layout.”
