Cooled water is needed for, air conditioners, manufacturing processes or power generation. A cooling tower is an equipment used to reduce the temperature of a water stream
by extracting heat from water and emitting it to the atmosphere. Cooling towers make use of evaporation whereby some of the water is evaporated into a moving air stream and
subsequently discharged into the atmosphere. As a result, the remainder of the water is cooled down significantly.Cooling towers are able to lower the water temperatures more
than devices that use only air to reject heat, like the radiator in a car, and are therefore more cost-effective and energy efficient.
