Painted Cooling Towers of Bloemfontein

Painted Cooling Towers of Bloemfontein
Bloemfontein:Free State:South Africa
Cooling towers are heat removal devices used to transfer process waste heat to the atmosphere. Cooling towers may either use the evaporation of water to remove process heat and cool the working fluid to near the wet-bulb air temperature or in the case of closed circuit dry cooling towers rely solely on air to cool the working fluid to near the dry-bulb air temperature. Common applications include cooling the circulating water used in oil refineries, chemical plants, power stations and building cooling.

From above description, we may assume that a cooling tower is totally a technical thing, a subject of engineer and technology lovers, but this simple tower can be an attractive and eye catching subject if it is a colorful and full of graffiti. Here is one of those colofrul COOLing tower from Bloemfontein. There are two towers of same nature in Soweto too.

Inspired by the positive response from the newspapers and other media, after painting the Orlando cooling tower of Soweto First National Bank took the initiative to paint these four cooling towers of Bloemfontein's coal power station. An Ad agency named Draftcb from Johannesburg did the paint to revive theses 200 feet towers.
