Research Cottrell constructed the concrete induced draft-cooling tower at Cross Generating Station in 1984. The initial performance test indicated a major tower deficiency. The subsequent performance tests I '85-'87 indicated a drastic degradation in performance. The tower was upgraded in April '88 during the scheduled plant outage of three weeks. The major modification included replacing the existing fill (approx. 180,000 cubic feet), nozzle assemblies, drift eliminators and adding a cross-flow section. A performance test of modified tower is to be conducted in June-July. Results will be discussed.
