Zaporizhye Steel II, Ukraine
YWCT was asked to replace an old cooling tower that was operating
under extremely harsh conditions in a steel mill in the Ukraine.
Circulating water inlet temperature was 65o C., and it was expected
to exit the cooling tower at 35oC.
In order to stand up to the harsh conditions, YWCT designed a high
induced-draft counterflow cooling tower with no fill at all.
The distribution system was designed as an array of open channels that
enable cleaning easily.
Distribution was based on special no-clog pigtail nozzles.
The nozzles were installed at the outlet of 2m pipes to ensure the
correct pressure/head and optimal distribution.
The nozzles, channels, and pipes were all made of 316SS-grade
The cooling tower was completed in less than two months.
