Maximizing Cooling-Tower Water Efficiency

This article discusses practical water-conservation opportunities for evaporative cooling towers.

With a nominal efficiency of 0.2 kw per ton, evaporative cooling towers are among the most energy-efficient and cost-effective technologies for rejecting waste heat from air conditioning and other heat-exchange processes to the atmosphere. In the process, however, they use significant volumes of water. This article will discuss practical water-conservation opportunities for cooling towers.
