Water Cooling Tower Fire Hazards - FEMA Training

Water-cooling towers are heat removal devices used to transfer waste heat from various sources such as machinery or heated process material to the atmosphere. Common applications include cooling the circulating water used in oil refineries, chemical plants, power plants, and building cooling. Smaller towers are normally factory-built, while larger ones are constructed on site.
