Controlling and preventing the growth of microorganisms in a cooling tower is extremely important and required to keep the system running at optimal levels. The presence of microorganisms will cause the system to breakdown and decreases the efficiency of the heat transfer. Typically oxidizing biocides such as chlorine and bromine have been used to treat cooling water. Unfortunately these chemicals are highly reactive with other chemicals and microbiological species found in the water. Chlorine dioxide however is...
Efficiency is everything in the cooling water circuit. Everything at ProMinent revolves around the perfect cooling water circuit, which needs to experience few losses over its long life. The precise metering of inhibitors and biocides and suitable filters make this possible.
An optimal heat transfer is the most important point in every water cooled process. Scale, corrosion and biofouling negatively affect the heat transfer. Therefore Kurita develops for cooling and process water systems customized solutions, based on the combined treatments of scale & fouling prevention, corrosion inhibition, and biocides.
Boilers and cooling towers share two major water related problems: deposits and corrosion. As steam is generated by a boiler or water evaporating from a cooling tower, dissolved minerals are left behind, increasing the concentration of these minerals. Additional minerals are introduced via the water added to makeup the water lost to steam/evaporation. Eventually, the minerals reach a level (or cycle) of concentration that will cause either loss of efficiency due to scale or damage from corrosion. This level can...
Large or Small Process Cooling Water Applications are Perfect for AMSA BCP Chemistry. oth open loop and closed loop process industrial cooling systems will have cleaner surfaces, allowing more efficient heat exchange and cooling when AMSA BCP chemistry is included in the chemical treatment program.
AMSA BCP products keep comfort cooling water systems working efficiently. BCP 1000 and 2000 Series liquid products work within a complete chemical treatment program to maintain clean comfort cooling water systems that operate at peak cooling efficiency. Used in conjunction with a registered biocide, AMSA BCP chemistry controls microbial biofilms and minimizes the risk of the presence of pathogens in cooling systems.
Problem: Large quantities of water are used for cooling in industrial manufacturing. To prevent scaling, corrosion and biofilm in the cooling system, inhibitors and biocides are regularity dosed. Make-up water is continuously added to the system to balance the loss of water from evaporation. As water is added, the concentration of chemicals is diluted and the quality of water changes.
The TD-4100 utilizes a non-fouling, non-contact flow cell which requires little to no maintenance, and uses fluorescence technology to accurately detect oil in water from low ppb to high ppm. For this application, the TD-4100 monitors oil in water at 1 to 5 ppm and signals an operator with an alarm when the concentration exceeds the high alarm relay set-point.
Superior reliability for superior control! Biocide treatments are essential to control microbiological growth in cooling systems. If not properly managed, the warm environments of cooling systems are ideal for the growth of microorganisms. As microorganism communities grow in cooling systems, they can attach to pipe walls and form biofilms. These biofilms pose serious risks, from human health risks like Legionnaire`s disease to reduced operating efficiency and eventually to equipment failure via microbiologically...
Fluorescence-based oil in water monitors from Turner Designs Hydrocarbon Instruments have been used extensively in industrial water processes for more than 20 years. These low maintenance fluorescence monitors have no significant measurement disturbance from water turbidity or naturally occurring organics in the water. Oil in water monitors can help detect and prevent major oil spills that may cause significant environmental damage and regulatory compliance infractions.
The installation of AZUD filtration equipments allows the reduction of the total solids in suspension in the water, and: Helps to maintain an optimal efficiency of energy in the heat interchange process. Reduce the accumulation of particles in the components of the cooling systems. Reduce the growing of microorganisms. The higher or lower proliferation of these microorganisms is directly linked to the higher or lower availability of organic nutrients which favour the development of the same. When reducing the...
A number of treatment products are often added to prevent corrosion, scaling and fouling. Coating of sensors and other effects of these products must be taken into account when selecting analyzers. Discharge monitoring needs special attention because zero measurements must be reliable over time with little maintenance.
ENEXIO Water Technologies delivers efficient solutions for industrial and municipal water and waste water treatment. They include process calculation and design of the plant, delivery of fill media or lamella clarifiers and necessary auxiliaries such as support construction, launders, rotary distributors as well as supervision and on-site assembly equipment.
Heating or cooling systems, conventional or alternative, involve water. Over time that water picks up particles which in extreme cases can silt up entire heating systems, requiring expensive maintenance, repair or even replacement. A build-up of solids no thicker than a human hair inside pipework can reduce heat transfer by up to 30%, drastically reducing efficiency and increasing energy consumption.
Monitoring Biomass in (Cooling Tower) Waters through ATP monitoring
The TOXcontrol can be used for ATP monitoring. Currently our company is doing research for further developments for this application on the TOXcontrol.
Monitoring the microbial population of cooling towers is necessary in order to maintain the proper operation of the system. Conventional methods for monitoring microbial populations work by culturing microorganisms, a time-consuming procedure that requires days or even weeks of incubation before...
The fresh water requirement for a cooling tower in a typical coal-based power plant is approximately 80% of the total consumption of water. These concentrated cooling water blowdown streams are extremely rich in silica, are characterized by higher hardness levels and include other organic loads. Aquatech has vast experience in recycle/reuse solutions for cooling tower blowdown and cooling tower water treatment.
