The use of windscreens has been utilized in the Industrial and Agricultural Markets to provide performance and maintenance improvement solutions for over 30 years. We are now focusing on improving the performance of Cooling Towers, Fin Fan Air Coolers, and Air-Cooled Condensers across refineries, power plants and many other manufacturing facilities. This paper will identify some of the performance and degradation problems associated with fill clogging and fouling, freezing and winterization, re-circulation and interference, and plume abatement and discuss the use of windscreens as industry leading solutions. Case studies will be provided to illustrate these solutions.
