The minimum pressure detectable is 20 micro-pascals (20 μΡζ) and the maximum tolerable is 20 million micro-pascals or 20 Pa. 6 Noise and noise control 57 2000 μPa corresponds to 40dB, and so on up to 200 000 000 μPa corresponds to 140 dB The system of measurement is applied to the range of frequencies recognizable, which, with optimum hearing extends from 20 hertz (20 vibrations per second) to 20000 hertz (20 kHz). 1. As with any vibrations, frequency and wavelength are related by velocity and in the case of sound waves in air this is 344 metres per second at 20°C at sea level.

4 Cooling tower components and construction materials 39 into sharp focus the need for extremely tight control of drift. 001% can now be readily achieved and may be specified for cooling towers in sensitive locations. Expressing drift loss as a percentage of total circulation can be misleading, as it implies that the loss in mg/m3 rises in proportion to the water flow rate, which it does not! In fact, within wide limits it is little affected by water flow rate. 2 Aerofoil section plate eliminator 40 Cooling tower practice spread of infection is related more to the number and size range of aerosols released than to the mass of water in mg/m3; the need is to devise a method of testing which relates eliminator efficiency directly to risk of infection.

1 Packing The traditional material used for cooling tower packing was timber, and, even though packs are now formed mainly from plastics, notably PVC (polyvinylchloride), timber remains the most straightforward material to consider in order to understand how the packing actually functions. There are two fundamental approaches to packing design - the first is splash packing in which the hot water falling through the tower is encouraged to form droplets. The mechanism by means of which these droplets cause cooling has been reviewed in A.
