  • TurbEx® COOLING TOWER - Case Study

    This article is about the case study of the TurbeEx® Cooling Tower in operation at a Huhtamaki U.S. pulp & paper facility. Commissioned in late Spring 2016 this TurbEx® COOLING TOWER cools process water at a Huhtamaki U.S. pulp & paper facility using TurboScrubber® fluidized packing to ensure continuous non-clogging operation even with sticky pulp & solids ...

  • Winter operation consideration for open cooling towers

    Open cooling towers are susceptible to freezing due to their inherent nature of operation, heat rejection by evaporation. As a result, ice formation becomes a subject of management, not elimination. Several design considerations should be made to minimize the time and effort spent on ice management. Take a look at our latest e-flash,  ...

  • Ozone treatment for cooling towers

    Abstract The use of ozone as a maintenance treatment for cooling towers has good potential for operation and maintenance savings in the Federal secior. A small amount of ozone acts as a powerful biocide thai decreases or nearly eliminates the need to remove quantities of water from the cooling tower in order to decrease the concentration of organic and mineral solids in the system. ...

  • Hospital cooling tower application

    The Challenge: One of the largest teaching hospitals in Illinois wanted to improve safety and “green” operations in their cooling tower water treatment chemical regimen without sacrificing effectiveness. The Solution: Replacement of bulk bleach with on-site generated MIOX® mixed oxidant solution, Earthwise reduced the hospital's liability from ...

  • Cooling Tower Blowdown Water

    Comparison of electrolytic oxidation v. ozone as biocide and reducing rate of TDS build-up in Cooling Tower Blow Down Water. Performed by Pureflow PtY Ltd of Singapore at Singapore Polytechnic Institute. Open evaporative cooling systems have been widely used throughout industry to remove heat from process systems and modern buildings for the purpose of air conditioning. As a result, due to this ...


  • Cooling tower case study

    Cooling towers have always been difficult to control. Algae grow in the cooling tower itself and on the grids used. In addition to micro-organisms and biofilm, they reduce the efficiency of the cooling tower. Furthermore the risk of spreading Legionella is a serous factor to be reckoned with. Many of the traditional methods to fight algae are either insufficient, cumbersome, environmentally ...

  • The Use of Ozone in Cooling Towers

    Ozone has been successfully applied to industrial cooling water systems with the resultant improvement in operational efficiency due to increased heat transfer, reduced system corrosion, improved environmental impact and reducedon-going chemical expenditure. The aim of this paper is to provide practical advice on the options available for the application of ozone and the potential benefits which ...

  • How to Save with Cooling Tower Credits

    Cooling towers dissipate heat from recirculating water used to cool chillers, air conditioners, or other process equipment to the ambient air. Heat is rejected to the environment from cooling towers through the process of evaporation. Therefore, by design, cooling towers use significant amounts of water. The thermal efficiency and longevity of the cooling tower and equipment depend on the proper ...

  • Determining Proper Cooling Tower Size

    To maximize water-based cooling tower benefits, the appropriate tower size must be selected, requiring the identification of several critical factors. Cooling towers are a relatively inexpensive and reliable way of expelling heat from a number of industrial processes, including nuclear & thermal power plants, petroleum refineries, petrochemical plants, food processing plants, as well as HVAC ...

  • RYDLYME improves efficiency on cooling tower case study

    A 35-ton cooling tower at a major college had compressors operating at more than 260psi just to maintain a 70°F water temperature due to heavy water scale. RYDLYME was put into the system to dissolve the scaling. RYDLYME approach 55 gallons circulated for 4 hours via inline pumps and then flushed with water. Cleaning was done while system was in ...

  • Use of cooling tower blow down in ethanol fermentation

    Reducing water consumption in bioethanol production conserves an increasingly scarce natural resource, lowers production costs, and minimizes effluent management issues. The suitability of cooling tower blow down water for reuse in fermentation was investigated as a means to lower water consumption. Extensive chemical characterization of the blow down water revealed low concentrations of toxic ...

  • Maintenance tips for cooling towers - White Paper

    Cooling towers are prone to the typical causes of rotating machine failure such as misalignment, but also face a range of specific environmental challenges, including high or gusting wind speeds, dust, sand and, in coastal locations, high concentrations of salt. In the 1990s, for example, vibration and accelerated wear caused a fan blade to shear off a cooling tower in Pennsylvania, ...

  • Cooling tower for Chemical processing plant - case study

    This chemical processing plant needed clean, debris-free water for cooling purposes. We created custom traveling water screens for their cooling tower that are compact and efficient. Smaller mesh sizes can catch fine debris for a this type of installation. No matter what architectural or engineering constraints, we’ll create a water screen solution that fits. This project included: ...
