Cooling towers use a process such as generating electricity to evaporate water to dissipate heat. The size of the towers varies from small structures to very large structures that can be more than 220 meters high and 100 meters long. Cooling occurs when water is in direct contact with a reciprocating air stream or a reciprocating stream with a wet bubble temperature lower than the hot water temperature, so the water cools by mass transfer (evaporation) and by tangible and latent transfer. The heat of water to air, which increases the air temperature and humidity and decreases the water temperature. Water enters through overflows through the tower dome to distribute water at the highest possible level. Water enters from above and is evenly distributed on the cushion (a framework that helps improve air-water contact). In this way, an optimal contact between the atmospheric climate is achieved. Inside the towers is a package or filler installed. This is done with the aim of increasing the contact surface between the hot water and the air that cools it. In addition, droplet removers are installed that trap water droplets to reduce fluid loss.
