Conditioning tower problems

Hi there,

We have a conditioning tower from FLS from 15 years ago with 2400 tpd production which was upgraded to 2600 tpd a few year ago. We have continuous problems with conditioning tower and problem of mud at the bottom of it and therefore higher output temperatures. So my question is if after maintenance we have a few days of good operation under steady conditions and after that with the same operation conditions we have mud formation at the bottom of CT is the problem from nozzles arrangement or the clogging of nozzles?

I think it is the nozzles and the positioning or arrangement is fine, please share your thoughts on this.

If it is 15 years old, it may not be with air for atomizing the water, In that case the water pressure can be too low (the required pressure is probably 40 bar), and/or the nozzles are worn. Also the water must have no impurities.

Usually; the main reason of mud in CT is the water nozzles, nozzles should be checked from time to time. if nozzles are ok; try to reduce the number of nozzles in operation and then start increasing gradually and under your observation.
