Cooling Towers

Cooling Towers. These towers remove low grade heat from cooling water. Hot water from heat exchangers is sent to the cooling tower. Cooling towers fall into two categories: natural draft and mechanical draft. Natural draft towers use large concrete chimneys and are generally used by utility power stations. Mechanical draft towers use large fans to force air through circulated water. The water falls downward over fill surfaces which increases contact time between the water and the air, maximizing heat transfer.
