Influence of variation fluid flow towards the performance of cooling tower type induced draft counterflow cooling tower
This research aims to improve the competence of students in the field of Cooling Tower. With product research is a simulation of Cooling Tower. The type cooling tower is Induced Draft Counter flow Cooling Tower. The need of simulation cooling tower for Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Program Study student will be met.Simulation of the Cooling Tower to be created, the load of cooling tower from 2 x 4 kW heater to heat the water that will be circulated to the cooling tower . The pump will circulation water heated by the heater into the cooling Tower. Discharge of water circulated will be varied, then the hot water circulated or which will be cooled in a cooling tower, also will be varied, to see a performance of a cooling tower that was made. The performance of the cooling tower is sought is the value of the temperature range, the temperature value approach, the effectiveness of the average cooling towers, the rate of evaporation of water into the air, cooling capacity (cooling load).
