TYPES OF COOLING TOWERS

A cooling tower is a specialized heat exchanger in which two fluids (air and water) are brought into direct contact with each other to affect the transfer of heat. In a “spray-filled” tower, this is accomplished by spraying a flowing mass of water into a rain-like pattern, through which an upward moving mass flow of cool air is induced by the action of a fan.

Direct (or open) Cooling Tower

This type of system exposes the cooling water directly to the atmosphere. The warm cooling water is sprayed over a fill in the cooling tower to increase the contact area, and air is blown through the fill. The majority of heat removed from the cooling water is due to evaporation. The remaining cooled water drops into a collection basin and is recirculated to the chiller.

Indirect (or closed) Cooling Tower

An indirect or closed cooling tower circulates the water through tubes located in the tower. In this type of tower, the cooling water does not come in contact with the outside air. This represents a “closed” system.

A cooling tower is a collection of systems that work together. What follows is a list of some of the components and an overview of how these systems operate.
