Part I: How Heat Loads Affect Evaporative Cooling Tower Efficiency
Evaporative cooling towers are usually designed to provide the proper cooling needed for the process when both production and the outdoor conditions are at their maximum. When heat load is not at its maximum, air or water flow of the tower can be reduced and energy can be saved.
