Hyperbolic Stack Natural Draft Cooling Tower

“Animation shows hyperbolic stack natural draft cooling towers that are used in nuclear, oil-fired, gas-fired, and coal-fired electricity generating plants. “Air flows into the tower through openings in the bottom. Hot water from the power plant is sprayed in the air and is cooled. The cooled water flows out the bottom and back to the power plant, while warm, moist air (steam) exits out the top.”
