Gas Cooling and Conditioning

Gas cooling and conditioning are widely used in cooling and temperature reduction in industrial production processes. Spray cooling is a common technology that uses water mist to cool air. Its working principle is to spray water mist into the air and use the evaporation heat absorption effect of water to reduce the air temperature.

Spiral nozzles are particularly effective in gas cooling applications due to their ability to produce fine, uniform sprays that enhance heat transfer and cooling efficiency.

Gas Cooling and Conditioning Features:

Refers to the process of lowering the temperature of gases generated during industrial processes. This is typically achieved by using water sprays, cooling towers, or heat exchangers. The purposes of gas cooling include:

Gas Cooling and Conditioning Features:

Power Plants: In coal-fired power plants, spiral nozzles are used to cool flue gases before they enter air pollution control devices such as electrostatic precipitators or bag filters. This cooling helps prevent damage to the equipment and improves the efficiency of pollutant removal.

Cement and Steel Industries: In cement kilns and steel manufacturing, spiral nozzles cool the hot gases produced during various stages of production. This cooling is crucial for protecting downstream equipment and meeting emission regulations.

Gas Turbine Inlet Cooling: In gas turbine systems, spiral nozzles are used to cool the inlet air, increasing the density of the air and thereby enhancing the turbine’s power output and efficiency.

Gas Scrubbing: Spiral nozzles can be used in gas scrubbers to cool and humidify gases. This is important in processes where gases need to be treated to remove pollutants or particulates, as the cooling and humidification help in better absorption of contaminants.

Chemical Plants: In chemical processing, spiral nozzles are employed to cool process gases to the required temperatures for subsequent processing steps. This ensures optimal reaction conditions and improves overall process efficiency.

Refineries: Spiral nozzles are used in refineries to cool gases in various processes, such as during the catalytic cracking process, where cooling is needed to condense and separate different hydrocarbons.

CYCO Gas Cooling and Conditioning Applications

Cooling of Flue Gases in a Power Plant


High-temperature flue gases exiting a boiler need to be cooled before entering the air pollution control equipment to prevent damage and improve pollutant removal efficiency.

Power Plant

Gas Turbine Inlet Cooling


Gas turbines operate more efficiently with cooler, denser inlet air, but ambient air temperatures can often be high, reducing efficiency.
