Other factor supporting the choice of air-cooled condensing are the lack of make-up water or drainage facilities, the availability of only foul water, high summer wet-bulb temperatures, relatively low summer dry-bulb temperatures or high water costs. Installations featuring many independent compressors may possibly be served more satisfactorily by multiple air-cooled condensers or cooling tower.
Also, if operation is required or at low outdoor temperatures, air-cooled condensing presents no water freezing problems. In the 50-150 ton capacity range, evaporative condensing usually has the lowest first cost. Some other factors which encourage its use are low wet-bulb temperatures, high dry-bulb temperatures, or the availability of inexpensive water of adequate quality. Operating costs may be below those of air-cooled condensing, partially if the condensing temperature considered is lower, with consequently smaller compressor power input requirements.
In general, conditions favoring the use of evaporative condensing also favor water-cooled condensing in combination with a cooling tower. When the heat rejection equipment is located further away from the other refrigeration components, the use of a close-coupled water-cooled condenser and a remote cooling tower becomes economically more attractive. This is because the refrigerant piping necessary with sir-cooled or evaporative condensing is more costly than water piping for a given capacity.
Once-thru water-cooled condensing may be the most practical and economical choice if there is a nearby supply of eater of adequate temperature and quality such as a river, lake or well. Otherwise, city water costs, local codes for the use of water, or lack of adequate sewage facilities may make a once-thru system prohibitive.
