With all of these industrial plants around the world creating waste heat as a result of their production, what becomes of that heat, to avoid releasing it into the environment, and disrupting ecosystems?
The answer to that problem is industrial cooling towers. These towers extract waste heat to the atmosphere through the cooling of a water stream to a lower temperature. These towers can vary in size from large hyperboloid towers, which are most often found at nuclear power plants, down to small units installed on or near units for air conditioning units.
There are several different types of cooling towers. Dry or closed
Do you run a business that could benefit greatly from cooling water towers? If so, you will probably want to familiarize yourself with how cooling towers work and the various cooling tower systems that are available on the market.
For example, a big oil refinery that produces a daily amount of oil that totals 40,000 metric tons will also process approximately 80,000 cub meters’ worth of water each and every hour by using a cooling water tower. In addition to refineries, food processing plants, and industrial complexes involving semi-conductors, petrochemicals, natural gas, and other materials utilize these cooling towers to extract heat from the cooling systems.
