COURSE NO: M01-018
Cooling Tower Key Components and How to Improve Water Efficiency
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides a basic understanding of cooling towers, describes their key components and provides recommendations on how to improve the water efficiency.


Cooling towers are an integral component of many refrigeration systems, providing comfort or process cooling across a broad range of applications. They are the point in the system where heat is dissipated to the atmosphere through the evaporative process, and are common in industries such as oil refining, chemical process­ing, power plants, steel mills, and many different manufacturing processes where process cooling is required.


This 1 PDH online course is intended for mechanical and environmental engineers as well as others interested in learning more about cooling towers and how to improve their water efficiency.
