Cooling Towers

Cooling towers are designed to cool fluids using evaporation to get very high efficiency levels.

Conventional 'dry' coolers pass air over a warm fluid to remove the heat from that fluid. A cooling tower will either spray the fluid itself over a heat exchange surface while passing air over it in an open circuit design. Alternatively a closed circuit design has a separate reservoir of cooling fluid which is used to cool the main fluid without this main fluid ever being exposed to atmosphere.
