A common problem in both petrochemical plants and power stations is the recirculation of existing saturated air into the same or nearby cooling tower. Towers are often placed in close proximity because of lack of real estate and the result, due to the prevailing winds, is recirculation and/or interference. Galebreaker offers a CFD modelling service of your existing cooling tower system and the surrounding area, thus resulting in an increase in overall plant performance.
The importance of weather protection systems for the power and industrial sectors
As the market-leader in weather protection systems, we use advanced CFD Modelling techniques to accurately determine the right position and porosity of proposed wind reduction systems. We also provide cold weather and winterisation screens for wet and dry cooling applications. These solutions not only improve the thermal efficiency of power plants but help protect equipment from wind and the build-up of ice, which can cause unnecessary downtime and extensive damage to support structures if left unchecked.
