A newly released video compares the two fundamental types of cooling towers – crossflow and counterflow – and the characteristics of each type that may meet requirements for a specific application. The five-minute clip utilizes animation to explain how crossflow and counterflow towers are primarily differentiated by the direction of the air movement and how it interacts with the process water being cooled.

The video, produced by SPX Cooling Technologies, highlights how the two types of towers have different space considerations, maintenance processes and water quality requirements. It also explores the advantages of crossflow versus counterflow cooling towers.
