Drift Eliminator

Drift eliminators are used to capture water droplets in the air stream that otherwise would be lost to the atmosphere. Entrapping these droplets is important for not only conserving water as a resource but also to prevent cooling tower water from contaminating the area peripheral to the cooling tower.

The cooling tower industry uses drift rate to compare drift eliminator performance, a relationship that correlates droplet capture efficiency to the water circulation rate in a tower.

R.V Cooling’s drift eliminators are specifically designed to achieve maximum drift removal efficiency in both cross flow and counter flow tower applications with various product options available to minimize pressure drop, drift loss, cost, or a combination of all three.

Our Product Range

Water droplets are separated from the air drift at the three direction change points on the drift eliminator. The CD-S130/146 drift eliminators provide a rugged cellular structure formed by the solvent bonding of sinusoidal shaped corrugated sheets. Individual S-shaped corrugated sheets are bonded with subsequent layers to create the structure. The entire area is thus divided into several smaller S-shaped mini zones.

Features and Advantages

  • The modules are provided additional strength by the insertion of stiffener sheets at regular intervals.
  • Cellular type drift eliminators offer the highest drift elimination efficiency while introducing a lower static pressure drop
  • The eliminators can be assembled as well as cut at the field installation to ensure tight fit.
