Sometimes overlooked, the cooling towers and condenser water loop play and important role in the first cost, function, and efficiency of the chilled-water systems. A fundamental understanding of how the cooling tower affects chiller performance can provide opportunities to reduce both capital cost and operating expense. (Recorded 2005)

After viewing this course you will be able to:

  • Understand the cooling tower performance throughout the operating range of the chilled-water system
  • Summarize cost-effective methods of designing and operating the condenser portion of the system
  • Discover how various chilled-water-system designs can deliver efficient performance over a broad range of operating conditions
