Wet/Dry Hybrid Cooling Systems
DVC engineered modular Hybrid Wet/Dry closed circuit cooler is designed with purpose of providing maximum water saving, higher dry bulb switch over temperatures, while achieving plume abatement or elimination by utilizing evaporative (latent heat) and dry (sensible heat) modes of cooling, simultaneously.
If air ambient temperature is sufficient to cool down the process water temperature, Hybrid cooler runs in dry mode without spraying water on heat transfer surface and water consumption will be zero.
In higher air ambient temperature water is sprayed on the heat transfer surface and causes inlet ambient air to be cooled. This is called Wet mode or evaporative mode of operation of the Cooler.
