All about Cooling Towers

Cooling towers are utilized in various industries in South Africa and are available in a variety of sizes. They range from large, concrete industrial cooling towers to very small cooling towers at any industry that uses machinery. A cooling tower is a device that rejects waste-heat to the atmosphere through the cooling of a water stream to a lower temperature. Cooling towers either use the process of evaporation to remove excess heat or, in the case of a closed-circuit dry cooling tower, depend only on air circulation to cool machines.


Popular applications for cooling towers would be the cooling of water used in oil refineries, petrochemical and chemical plants, thermal power stations and HVAC systems for cooling buildings. Heat in a factory environment is detrimental, not to humans but to machines. Heat can easily destroy any machine quicker than the effects of poor maintenance and lack of lubrication combined. Many companies, industries and factories therefore invest money in cooling towers to extend the life span of their equipment and ultimately,their profits.
