Cooling towers

A greenhouse needs electricity, for example for lighting. This electricity is usually generated with a combined heat and power (CHP) system. A by-product of the electricity production is heat. This heat is not always needed in which case the heat must be mitigated to keep the CHP running. This can be done with the help of a cooling tower.

How does a cooling tower work?

A cooling tower draws in ambient air using fans and then blows it through the cooling tower. The heart of the cooling tower is the finned block, composed of a circuit of interconnected tubes containing the hot water. The ambient air is sucked or blown through the finned block, cooling the water.

When is a cooling tower used?

We also call our cooling towers emergency coolers. At the time when, for example, a gas engine needs water that may not be too hot and there is only hot water available, the use of a cooling tower is necessary. The cooling tower cools the water so that the too hot water does not damage the gas engine. 

Enerdes cooling towers made to measure

All Enerdes cooling towers are custom designed. The design of a cooling tower depends on many factors. These include ambient temperature, amount of water to be cooled, required temperature of the water, etc. Our engineers will gladly work with you to find a suitable solution.
