In a marketing text about boiler technology:

Pour analyser l'eau des circuits de refroidissement (IRDEFA) industriels et collectifs

IRDEFA stands for: 'installations de refroidissement d'air par dispersion d'eau dans un flux d'air'

Any help with the specific term would be much appreciated, thanks.

cooling tower
Explanation:
If IRDEFA and tour aéroréfrigérante are synonyms (as this site also suggests: http://www.refdoc.fr/Detailnotice?cpsidt=28344473), then it's just a cooling tower.

"A cooling tower is a heat rejection device that rejects waste heat to the atmosphere through the cooling of a water stream to a lower temperature."
