This PI System plugin provides useful information for identifying problems with cooling tower operation or physical conditions. It calculates the real-time expected cooling tower outlet temperature based upon wet bulb temperature and range (circ-water temperature rise). The Process Plugins toolset provides the calculation of wet bulb temperature from humidity or dew-point as necessary.
Operators can customize curves during installation and adjust them easily anytime afterward. Expected value calculations require the availability of appropriate curves from the manufacturer or actual historical data.
