This process dilutes the system water mineral concentrations that steadily increase due to water evaporation. Scale formation will occur if the concentration of minerals in a cooling tower system's water increases to a level higher than the saturation point of the sys...

How A Cooling Tower Works

 A cooling tower is a simple piece of equipment designed to remove heat energy from water through the process of evaporation. ¬†Because water removes heat energy more efficiently than air, cooling towers significantly outperform their air-cooled counterparts.Although there are a variety of distinctive cooling tower designs, their basic operation remains the same.Warm water from a heat source, such as commercial air conditioning systems or industrial equipment, is pumped to th...
