Painted Cooling Tower of Meppen

Painted Cooling Tower of Meppen
Gewerbegebiet Huntel : Meppen : Germany

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 another one from Meppen, Germany.
