Cooling Tower De-Icing System
During extended periods of cold weather, ice builds up on the louvers of
cooling towers. Continued ice build up reduces cooling tower efficiency and
eventually causes structural damage.
The de-icing system consists of a 6" header pipe 10 which taps into the
cooling tower supply pipe 12. Header pipe 10 carries tower water to distribution
pipes 14. Distribution pipes 14 are made of 1 1/2" PVC pipes with 1/4" holes
every 6 inches. The distribution pipes are attached to the top of each louver 16
with the holes set at an angle that will facilitate a smooth flow of water onto the
louver. A valve 18 between the header pipe and each distribution pipe makes it
possible to regulate the water flow across each louver. The continuous flow of
water on the louvers prevents ice formation.
