Pond Cooling Nozzles

Cool process water by spraying pond contents into the air, increasing surface area and cooling efficiency


Cooling ponds are used to lower water temperature through contact cooling with the surrounding air. Static ponds often have low cooling efficiency and require a lot of space as only the surface of the pond is in direct contact with the air, resulting in relatively expensive use of valuable land. BETE offers a wide variety of spray nozzles which can dramatically lower the expense and footprint of cooling ponds. By spraying and atomizing the water from the cooling ponds into the air, spray nozzles significantly increase the surface area of water exposed to the air, thus improving the cooling efficiency and decreasing the area needed for the pond. In some cases the use of spray nozzles can reduce the land required to 5% of the area needed for a static pond.
 

Selecting a Pond Cooling Nozzle: 

Important factors to consider:

  • Environment
    • Average temperatures, relative humidity, prevailing wind speeds, etc.
  • Nozzle placement
    • In general, spray nozzles are placed evenly around/over the pond at a height that maximizes residence times while taking droplet drift due to wind into account
  • Nozzle clog resistance
  • Available and required flow/cooling rates
  • Available pressure drop (∆P) across the nozzle
    • ∆P = supply pressure at nozzle inlet - process pressure outside nozzle
    • Typical operating pressures range from 10-20 PSI (0.7-1.4 bar) to produce a drop size capable of efficient cooling while minimizing evaporation losses and wind drift
  • Our experienced engineers can help determine which nozzle will perform as required with your design details
