Dry Cooling or Air Cool Condenser

The dry cooling systems for power plants have gained an increasing interest as an alternative to the wet cooling systems. They are likely to be preferred in the following circumstances:

  • Early permission to build a power plant is usually in favor of the Dry cooling for which locations are in greater numbers and permits received earlier
  • Water supply is an issue whether water is not/poorly available or made too expensive or a sensitive subject today or tomorrow
  • The plume of the wet towers even reduced by use of a hybrid wet cooling tower is not welcome for various reasons.
