What are the consequences of a poorly efficient cooling tower?
The lower the efficiency of a tower the more serious the situation in terms of performance and productivity. The tower is part of an overall system designed to dispose residual heat from a production plant or at least from an aforetime primary system. A decreasing of efficiency in cooling tower affects the yield of the primary system with a considerable waste of energy and, especially, reduced production.

A cooling tower can also be defined as a cross-flow heat exchanger that removes heat from water and transfers it to air.
