Title: Drift deposition from mechanical draft cooling towers

Abstract

A comprehensive experiment to study drift from mechanical draft cooling towers was conducted during June 1978 at the PG and E Pittsburg Power Plant. The data from this study are to be used for drift deposition model validation. Results show the effects of tower geometry and orientation with respect to the wind and to single or two tower operation. The effect of relative humidity on droplet evaporation as a function of downwind distance can also be seen.
