Cooling towers are one of the most vital instruments used for cooling purposes in power plants.
Hot water from the condenser is cooled and heat is released into the atmosphere. Evaporation is the means by which cooling is achieved here.
Industries that use large cooling towers:
- Petroleum Refineries
- Power Plants
- Manufacturing Facilities
Industries like HVAC, Refrigeration, plastic industry etc. use small and medium sized cooling towers.
Due to higher heat loads in the HVAC System, water cooled chillers are more desirable as they have a higher efficiency than air cooled chillers. Cooling towers are also used as a part of the air conditioning system in places like schools, hotels, malls, large office complexes etc.
