Wooden Cooling Tower Drift Eliminators Get Dirty

The following photos illustrates the cooling tower infills and drift eliminators. That's why after some period of time we need to clean the infills. In worse cases, we need to replace the infills. In this example, the infills are made from cengal wood.

Dirty and crooked drift eliminators. These drift eliminators were then replaced with a new set.
