Designed for large power plants located in areas that are arid or subject to restricted water usage, this indirect dry cooling tower system features SPX’s patent-pending Mega Delta technology. This technology utilizes a traditional steam surface or jet condenser, a circulating water system and fin tube bundles to dissipate the waste heat using the natural draft created by the concrete cooling towers.
While a two-unit project traditionally requires two housing towers, SPX will design the Wu’an power plant’s dual-tower IDCT system for installation in a single tower. Using a single tower instead of two for the dry cooling system will reduce tower construction costs and require a smaller plot of land to be used at the plant site.
SPX Thermal Equipment and Services is a leading global provider of evaporative and hybrid cooling towers and solutions, air-cooled condensers, heat exchangers, air and flue gas systems and filter systems. These technologies support thousands of customers in the power generation, industrial, refrigeration, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) markets.
