Cooling Tower: Operation and Use
A complete guide on how open and closed evaporative towers work. Cooling tower components. Water treatment in cooling towers. Choosing a cooling tower manufacturer.
What is a Cooling Tower?
“A cooling tower is a device that rejects waste heat to the atmosphere through the cooling of a coolant stream, usually a water stream, to a lower temperature. Cooling towers may either use the evaporation of water to remove process heat and cool the working fluid to near the wet-bulb air temperature or, in the case of dry cooling towers, rely solely on air to cool the working fluid to near the dry-bulb air temperature using radiators.” (Definition source: Wikipedia)

Cooling Towers: Components and Materials
The quality of the water to be cooled significantly affects both the choice of constructive materials and fill pack material.
Water Treatment for Cooling Towers
Aim of an automatic make-up system, role of a proper chemical treatment, use of osmotised water and how to maintain the circulating water at optimal limits.

Application of Cooling Tower
Cooling technologies for the food industry
Cooling technologies for food industry must help preserve the quality of the finished product (and of the process liquid): this is true even more than in other industries. Closed circuit cooling towers and “hybrid towers” can make their contribution. It is fundamental to grant the operational plant continuity of the cooling system.
Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sector
We are talking about systems of very different sizes: as industrial fluid temperatures change the cooler must be sized accordingly. The operational continuity is fundamental, while the good life of the cooler is particularly appreciated (also thanks to non-corrodible solutions). Noise is not a problem, thanks to sound-absorbing technical solutions.
Cooling Technologies for Offices
Low noise levels to ease daily life: this is the “must” of the cooling circuits attached to the air conditioning systems in the offices. Configurations suitable for restricted or peculiar spaces are also often required: the ideal are open circuit cooling towers with sound-absorbing technologies, possibly equipped with versatile centrifugal fans.
