The report gives results of an investigation of the feasibility of utilizing direct, air-cooled condensation systems in coastal environments. Particular attention was devoted to the prevention of corrosion of external surfaces of fintubes, of coil freezing, and of excessive noise. Manufacturers were contacted to determine the extent of their experience in providing this equipment. Owners and operators of dry towers were visited on-site to determine if the equipment can operate satisfactorily under a wide range of load and atmospheric conditions. Performance was also evaluated for the dry tower associated with an 85-MW combined-cycle unit under construction for the Braintree (Massachusetts) Electric Light Department.
