Fan assisted natural draft cooling tower

The fan assisted natural draft cooling tower (FAND) combines the advantages of the natural draft cooling tower and the mechanical draft cooling tower.

It becomes the best available technology when :

  • Locations with limited plot plan
  • Overall height is limited
  • Important heat load 

 
Advantages vs cells :

  • Compact arrangement
  • Power saving due to natural draft
  • No recirculation
  • Always a good alignment considering wind directions
  • Cooling by natural draft in case of electricity shortage


Advantages vs natural draft cooling tower :

  • Reduced height
  • Better cooling characteristics during the summer season
  • Higher flexibility
