A cooling tower is a specialized heat exchanger that reduces the water’s temperature. It is done by mixing air and water. Due to this, a small amount of water is evaporated thereby reducing the water temperature in the tower. A cooling tower is used in petrochemicals, oil refineries, thermal power stations, chemical plants, and HVAC for cooling the building.

Types of the cooling tower are: -

  • Natural draft
  • Induced draft
