You may not know it, but in your time, you’ve probably seen a few cooling towers, and if you have a television, you’re more than likely to have seen them in The Simpsons’ opening credits; they’re the two tall, chunky grey structures that make up the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant. But in addition to being an image on a colourful cartoon horizon, cooling towers in real life are vital components of any power station, and on a number of other buildings and structures they are also a common site.

As you may have guessed by the name, they are designed to remove excess waste heat from a power station from the process and into the atmosphere, thus keeping the reactors of the power station cool and safe. By using water evaporation to remove process heat and cool the working fluid to the wet-bulb temperature, or proper temperature, and by relying on air to cool the working fluid to the temperature of the dry-bulb, they do this in a number of ways, depending on the type of cooling tower used. Depending on the size of the building and the kind of work being carried out inside, these towers can vary in size. In fact, some towers are very small, and can also be referred to as roof-top units for larger rectangular units that can be more than 40 metres high and 80 metres long for extremely large, curved structures that can be more than 100 metres high and 100 metres wide.
The tower at the Needlegrasses Power Station in Germany, which stands at an amazing 200 metres tall, is actually the world’s biggest cooling tower. There are also many different kinds of towers to be discovered, and the type of tower will depend on the work that it has to do. HVAC (heating, ventilating and air-conditioning) cooling towers, for example, are a subcategory of the original.
