Date of Publication :2nd March 2017

Abstract: Cooling towers are a critical component in many power generation, chemical and integrated steel plants.Catastrophic equipment failure can result in safety hazards, lowered production, and expensive repairs. Blades are the important parts of the fan. The main objective of this research work is to find the resonance of cooling tower fan using vibration analysis. This method can eliminate the failures of the cooling tower fan blades, shorten the repair cycle, ensures the smooth production of the enterprise and improve economic efficiency.
