Cooling Towers In Business And Industry

Cooling towers are becoming important equipment in many industries throughout the world. Many important manufacturing processes now require cooling as an integral component. As such, it is now impossible to think of important industrial or manufacturing processes without this equipment. The tower works on the principle of evaporative cooling, which causes water to be exposed to ambient air. This causes the partial evaporation of water and results in cooling. This tower is best for industrial processes that require hours of cooling. Some industrial applications that require refrigeration are power plants, sugar mills, air conditioners, chillers, steel mills, petroleum refining and more.

The industrial revolution hastened the pace of industrial manufacturing around the world, and increased the complications caused by heat, which was a byproduct of many of the manufacturing processes. The main challenge that engineers and technicians faced was the removal of heat. This led to the development of the first prototypes of such towers. These towers were originally made of wood. However, recent advances in technology have led to the development of cooling towers made from Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) and Reinforced Cement Concrete (RCC) as well.

Today, many industrial installations in India utilize this equipment. Commercial cooling towers are also in vogue because location cooling is also becoming a necessity in addition to process cooling unlike the past years. The quality of water being used in this equipment is also of great importance. If this water is not utilized properly, then this could lead to the formation of harmful bacteria and algae, which could further complicate the health of the workforce. Moreover, if water is not treated properly, it could lead to scaling and could cause corrosion of the equipment and the installation itself. Cooling towers consume significant amount of energy. Therefore, wherever it is possible, industries can utilize fan less and fill less towers that rely on natural processes for cooling.

Many companies in India now produce world-class towers. Most manufacturers are now aware of quality and have obtained ISO certification to build some of the best equipment in the industry. This tower is also exported to other countries. Most manufacturers in India now use industry standard equipment and materials in the manufacture of this equipment. Various quality inspections ensure defect-free production. In summary, such towers in India are now able to meet industry requirements to some extent given the increasing industrial needs in the country.
