AUXILIARY COOLING WATER FLOW ESTIMATION BASIS

1.0 INTRODUCTION
ACW quantity is required to be estimated for calculation of Water Balance Diagram as well as for selection of ACW pum
ACW quantity circulated through the heat exchanger depends upon the following factors:
a) Heat Load of various auxiliaries
b) Design of the Heat Exchanger
c) Permissible temperature rise of ACW Flow quantity

2.0 THUMB-RULE
The Value of ACW quantity normally varies from 5% to 8% of CW quantity.
