Keeping Cooling Water Clean

By Brad Buecker, AEC PowerFlow |

Cooling water systems that rely on cooling towers are a critical component at chemical process industries (CPI) facilities. However, during operation, these open recirculating systems concentrate the contaminants in the makeup water, and as a result, scale formation and biological fouling can occur. To manage this problem, all cooling water systems require proper chemistry control and monitoring. Unless prevented, corrosion and the build up of scale and microbial fouling can impact cooling efficiency and in extreme cases even lead to unit shutdown. This article examines some of the fundamental concepts and treatment options that should be considered to keep open, recirculating cooling systems clean.   Click here for full pdf version of this article – includes all graphs, charts, tables, and author information
