The invention relates to energy and is designed to conduct heat and mass transfer processes between gas and liquid with their direct contact, in particular in the fan and cooling towers, and allows you to increase the cooling capacity of the fill and reduce consumption.

The closest to the technical essence and the achieved effect and selected as a prototype is the tower fill up the RF patent №2141617, CL F28F 25/08, made in the form of layers of a polymeric porous pipe having a circular cross-section.

The disadvantage of this fill is the looseness of its design, resulting in a large draught during operation due to the flattening, which reduces the uniformity of the heat transfer by volume of the fill, and consequently, reduces its cooling capacity.

Technical result - increase the cooling capacity of the fill and decrease, due to this, material.

This is due to the fact that in the cooling tower fill in the form module of the layers of a polymeric porous tubes of the tube is cylindrical, placed in layers parallel to each other and are welded on the ends of the module with each other in the places of contact, and the cavity of each of the tubes and the tube space of the filled hollow polymer spheres, the diameter of the balls 5÷10% more m ximango cell size pipes.

The drawing shows the tower fill in a perspective view.

The tower fill is made in the form of a module layer 1 of polymer honeycomb pipe 2. Pipes are oriented in all layers 1 parallel to each other and soldered on the ends of the 3 modules together in 4 places of contact. The cavity of each of the tubes and the tube space of the filled hollow polymer balls 5, and the diameter of the balls 5 to 10% greater than the maximum cell size of the pipe 2.

The implementation of the tower and thereby give the ends of the module properties of the diaphragm. This enables you to avoid drawdown of layers of fill, i.e. to provide during installation and to maintain in operation the optimal geometry of curved mesh surfaces of the pipes to create throughout the volume of the fill thin water film without dripping. This achieves the uniformity of the heat transfer and, consequently, increases the cooling capacity of the fill and reduces its consumption. Additional rigidity gives the filling pipe and the annulus hollow polymer spheres 5.

To increase the rigidity of the tubes in adjacent layers can be placed in staggered relation to each other.

Porous polymer tube 2 is produced by extrusion, cut into sections, the length of which is suitable for the em to the length of the side of the module, and placed in the conductor, respecting the necessary stacking direction, i.e. with the tube 2 in parallel to each other. After accumulation in the conductor of the required number of tubes 2 to their ends down heating elements and weld them together in 4 places of contact. Due to this, on the ends of the 3 modules of the fill aperture formed rigidity, allowing him during operation to maintain the original optimal geometry of its elements. Additional rigidity gives a more dense packing of tubes staggered in adjacent layers.

The tower fill is as follows.

Water spray nozzles, comes to fill and drains of the thin film without dripping on its elements. Thus there is a uniform heat and mass transfer throughout the volume of the fill, and therefore, increases the cooling capacity of the fill and reduced consumption.

The tower fill in the form module of the layers of a polymeric porous pipe, the pipe is cylindrical, placed in layers parallel to each other and are welded on the ends of the module with each other in the places of contact, characterized in that the cavity of each of the tubes and the tube space of the filled hollow polymer spheres, the diameter of the balls 5÷10% more than the maximum cell size pipes
