Biofouling can significantly deteriorate the efficiency of cooling towers. A cooling tower with a three-flow cooling circuit has been developed. The fill pack consists of inclined-corrugated contact elements with perforation. One of the advantages of the proposed cooling tower is the possibility of uniform distribution of liquid over the cross-sectional area. The paper represents the results of an experimental study of the thermal performance of the three-flow cooling tower. It was found that when the wetting rate of the liquid increases, the thermal performance of the cooling tower can reach 47.8%. The developed three-flow cooling tower allows excluding the propagation of microorganisms and reducing the biofouling of industrial water systems along with the high performance for circulating water.
