Cooling towers are heat removal devices used to transfer process waste heat to the atmosphere. For many years, cooling towers and air strippers have been in use to transfer heat out of certain areas to ensure optimal performance of various things like manufacturing equipment.
There are a number of different types of cooling towers that are used for a variety of different purposes. For example, in the case of closed circuit dry cooling towers, the tower will rely solely on air to cool the working fluid to near the dry-bulb air temperature. Cooling tower systems are implemented in many different industries to cool different things.
Dry cooling towers operate by heat transfer through a surface that separates the working fluid from ambient
