Course Description

Cooling towers are a common site at many industrial plants, commercial buildings and public buildings. Skyscrapers, hospitals, office buildings, power stations, oil and gas plants, refineries, all need cooling towers. Irrespective of what engineering industry you work in, knowing a bit about cooling towers will always serve you well.

By the end of this course, you will know:
- Cooling tower theory (sensible and latent heat etc.).
- Common cooling tower nomenclature, components and terminology.
- Common types of cooling tower (natural, forced and induced).
- Common cooling tower designs (wet, dry, cross-flow, counter-flow, mechanical, natural, direct, indirect).
- How cooling towers work (evaporative cooling etc.).
- Common cooling tower and HVAC fan designs (axial, cross-flow, centrifugal etc.).
- Water properties and their importance (pH, temperature etc.).
- Common cooling tower concerns and problems (corrosion, scale, bacterial growth etc.).
- Common methods used to address these concerns and problems (chemical treatment etc.).
- Cooling tower protection (vibration, earthquake etc.).

The course is designed to take you from zero to hero concerning cooling tower knowledge. Even if you already have some background knowledge, this course will serve as an efficient refresher, whatever your level of understanding, or engineering background (HVAC, power engineering, oil and gas, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering etc.).

Interactive 3D models are used to show you each individual cooling tower component and several different cooling tower designs.

The course is packed with images, 2D animations, interactive 3D models and 3D animations and high quality written content. Written content has been read aloud so that you can 'learn on the go' without needing to watch the screen constantly.
