The article "Upgrading Air-Cooled Heat Exchangers (ACHE) and Cooling Towers" appeared in the June 2020 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

Summary
Many industrial facilities with air-cooled heat exchangers (ACHE) and cooling towers often have older units installed. Depending on the age, repairs, and maintenance done over the years it may have had an impact on performance. Upon conducting site inspections of the equipment, it is sometimes found that ACHE or cooling tower components have degraded. This can result in a system that is not very energy-efficient and delivers substandard cooling performance.
