3) METHODOLOGY USED IN
COOLING TOWER

Induced draft cooling tower

Cooling tower is essentially a heat and


mass transfer device. It removes heat from the water and
loses a fraction of water during heat transfer to the air.
When air is blown from downwards it came in contact
with upcoming water the enthalpy of which is higher and
at the time of contact this air causes evaporation of water
droplet. It is known that in order to get evaporated water
requires to gain certain amount of latent heat. It does so
from nearby droplet and evaporates into vapor form. Due
to removal of sensible heat, remaining water droplets
loses temperature and cools down. Due to higher surface
area in packing heat transfer rate increases and water is
