At the bottom of the cooling tower there are nozzles for atomizing and cooling incoming hot water. As the heated water is sprayed up inside the cooling tower, it warms the air, which expands, flows upward creating updraft which pulls fresh cold air up through the slatted bottom. Draft eliminators inside the cooling tower cause the cooled water to form droplets and rain back down into the cooling tower basin. The water level in the cooling tower basin must be monitored continuously to optimise use of the circulation pumps and the cooling process.
