Cooling Tower Water Treatment

Cooling Tower Water Treatment

A cooling tower water treatment is generally necessary for industrial enterprises that use a cooling tower to achieve an efficient procedure and extended equipment life span. Organic growth, foulants, scaling, and rust can decrease plant productivity, induce downtime, and necessitate costly machinery replacements if cooling tower water doesn’t receive treatment.

But what exactly is a cooling tower water treatment, and how does it function?

A cooling tower water treatment system is a collection of innovations that eliminate harmful impurities from the feed water, circulation water, and/or blowdown of your cooling tower. Several factors will influence the particular configuration of your system.

Cooling towers operate by utilising heat exchange. Water is continuously circulating throughout the system, and when it reaches the cooling tower, it is exposed to the atmosphere due to industrial procedures, giving rise to evaporation.

The quality of feed water determines the components of a cooling tower water treatment system.
In particular, a basic cooling tower water treatment by BioChem Water involves one or more of the following:

  • chemical feed
  • automated monitoring
  • clarification
  • ion exchange/softening
  • filtration and/or ultrafiltration

Any pairing of these treatment options may better suit your facility and constitute your cooling tower water treatment process, contingent on the contaminants present in your water. So, discuss with BioChem Water’s water treatment professional to determine the right system for your specific tower.

These standard elements are commonly sufficient, depending on the requirements of your cooling tower and procedure. However, if your tower necessitates a system that allows for further customisation, BioChem Water may need to incorporate some aspects of technologies.
