cooling tower vs. ground water source
here..However I dont see how in this guys case that his heatsink can not handle the load it was design for.
For one I'm puzzle has to why they would even entertain a hx
to begin with...Is the water quality that bad that hx had to be used?
Personally I would scrap the hx all together it appears it got the same attention as the cooling tower.
If the field can not accept the heat on high load demands then maybe a a devise added to the loop to heat your dosmetic needs would be a benerfit.Capture those btus.
Almost anywhere on earth ground water and soil temps will
provide a better efficiency then outside air.
We find in my area the reason for high mineral build up on pipe and hx is because air was being introduce to the system...mainly because most are pipe as a bleed down system rather then maintaining pressure.
More answer please.
