Drift eliminator for cooling towers

The high-efficiency drift-eliminator consists of PVC or PP sheets.

It is positioned above the distribution system and minimizes water loss through entrainment:

  • The drift-eliminator is a physical barrier stopping the airflow out of the tower by entraining water droplets from inside the cooling-tower.

  • It has the quality of coalescence: the process of merging tiny water droplets into a larger droplet unable to escape across the drift-eliminator.

On 21/06/2022 the new Royal Decree 487/2022 establishing the health requirements for the prevention and control of legionellosis was approved. Published on 22/06/2022, it will come into force on 02/01/2023, repealing the current RD 865/2003.

Concerning the drift-eliminator, the new decree makes it compulsory for the flow of water entrained to be less than 0.002% of the circulating water flow and for this efficiency to be credit in the corresponding certificate.

This will improve the safety of the towers against the proliferation of bacteria.
