How to calculate the costing of a cooling tower

Costing calculation of a cooling tower include analyzing of following features.

  • Building of the tower,
  • Constructing materials,
  • Packing materials the fills within the tower,
  • Pumps
  • Pings

Following cost also must included
  • Pump power costing,
  • Fan power costing for a mechanical draft cooling tower,
  • Estimate for the maintenance cost;
  • Treatment of the water to prevent corrosion, biological growth
Following book also help you to increase your ability to understand the concepts of engineering cost calculations

Plant Design and Economics for Chemical Engineers, fifth edition

Review of book

There are new chapters on process synthesis, computer-aided design, and design of chemical reactors. A traditionally strong feature of the text, economic analysis, strength, equipment sizing and cost estimation ... etc.
