This paper will discuss the benefits and thermal performance levels of modular splash fills vs. common film fill mediums in cooling towers and the change of those levels over the useful life of the fill. We will also examine the typical life cycle, durability and maintenance of modular splash fill. Last, we will review the advantage from being able to run at higher cycles of concentration, assistances for applications involving the use of gray water for makeup and for implementing in water conservation projects, which is vastly becoming a larger conversation topic due to the constant push from governing organizations.
