Cooling tower technology used in many industrial processes dates its history back to the 19th century: Cooling towers originated out of the development in the 19th century of condensers for use with the steam engine.[2] Condensers use relatively cool water, via various means, to condense the steam coming out of the pistons or turbines. This […]
