Brentwood’s blade drift eliminators use a series of sinusoidal-shaped PVC blades that force air to make three distinct changes of direction for maximum drift removal. As cost-effective drift removal options, the heavy gauge blades are held together with end caps to form a module that is lightweight yet strong enough to span up to 6 feet, saving material and labor costs.
With the tightest blade spacing, DE080 is the most efficient blade drift eliminator and offers the lowest blade drift eliminator pressure drop. This model also features an open drainage design for crossflow induced-draft applications.
Specifically designed for use in forced draft cooling towers, this drift eliminator features a deflector on the discharge edge of each blade that prevents recirculation of warm, moist air through the intake fans when installed properly.
The most affordable drift eliminator, DE120 has the widest blade spacing of Brentwood’s blade drift eliminator modules, providing effective performance and a lower potential for plugging.
Blade drift eliminators allow for longer span capabilities and rugged durability due to their heavier gauge blades. They are designed for effective droplet capture and provide a cost-effective drift solution.
Drift eliminators are used to control water loss from a cooling tower by limiting the amount of circulating water droplets that are emitted with the exhaust air of the tower. Since drift droplets contain the same chemical and particulate matter of the circulating water from which they originate, they can cause numerous detrimental effects on surrounding equipment and the environment. The cooling tower industry uses drift rate to compare drift eliminator performance, a relationship that correlates droplet capture efficiency to the water circulation rate in a tower. Brentwood’s drift eliminators are specifically designed to achieve maximum drift removal efficiency in both crossflow and counterflow tower applications with various product options available to minimize pressure drop, drift loss, cost, or a combination of all three.
