During the extreme hot days of the year, our cooling towers struggle to keep the condenser water cool enough. It was mentioned that we should look into using the liquid nitrogen as well as a heat exchanger to provide additional cooling to the condenser water system. The idea is that it will both vaporize the nitrogen and cool the system. I was curious if this is even possible? I thought the temperature of the liquid nitrogen would be too cold and would cause problems more than anything. Although, I am not exactly sure. This system uses 30 percent glycol. Any help or comments is much appreciated.
