This paper presents a simulation of two operations—upwind, downwind with two-phase flowing in the plate bundles of the plate-type evaporative condenser, by means of the FLUENT software, which provide a direct illustration of the influence of the water film flowing on spray water flow, air velocity, air direction in the plate bundles. The result of simulation demonstrates the advantages of air-water parallel-flow over countercurrent in making use of enhanced heat transfer and mass transfer of fluid film.
