Abstract: Several types of machines and equipment’s that transfer heat from one fluid to other. Cooling tower is one of them that transfer heat of high temperature water of heat exchanger to low temperature water and then cooled water circulates to heat exchanger again. Cooling tower generate cooled water in large amount and store in a water reservoir. If cooling tower is not design properly it can affect the cooling performance. These cooling towers are enormous and have various unique specifications depending on the environment that they will operate under and the extent to which the owners want to remain efficient and environment friendly. Cooling towers may either use the evaporation of water by removing heat from rest water and cool them near the wet-bulb temperature of air or, in the case of closed circuit as dry cooling tower in which working fluid cool near to the dry-bulb temperature of air. Several parameters as Cooling range, Wet bulb temperature, Mass flow rate of water, Tower height, Air velocity through tower and many other things that affect the performance of cooling tower. For a good designer all this parameter would want to mind for proper designing and functioning of cooling tower
Keywords: Cooling Tower, Effectiveness, Water Flow Rate, Tower Demand and Wet Bulb Temperature.
