Pond Cooling

Cool pond water; heat recovery

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.

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. 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. Using our experience, BETE engineers can can also review specific applications and provide recommendations taking factors such as wind drift and available operating conditions into account.
