Cooling towers provide evaporative cooling
for many types of systems. The specific
application will largely determine which BAC
Cooling Tower is best suited for a project.
Specific application assistance is available
through your local BAC Representative.
Principle of Operation
Cooling towers reject heat from water-cooled
systems to the atmosphere. Hot water from
the system enters the cooling tower and is
distributed over the fill (heat transfer
surface). Air is induced or forced through
the fill, causing a small portion of the
water to evaporate. This evaporation removes
heat from the remaining water, which is
collected in the cold water basin and
returned to the system to absorb more heat.
Each cooling tower line, although operating
under the same basic principle of operation,
is arranged a little differently.
