  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Ozone cooling tower treatment with and without mineral removal

    Abstract This paper builds on a prior paper by this author, McGrane (1991), In that paper, ozone is used as the sole means of cooling tower water treatment. The paper discusses water conservation by increased cycles of concentration, greatly increased efficiency through extremely low biological populations, and corrosion data which is compared to ozonated and chemically treated towers. ...

  • 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, ...

  • Upgrade Fill Media to Improve Cooling Tower Efficiency

    One of the simplest and most cost-effective ways in which to extend the life of a cooling tower, improve heat transfer efficiency and reduce maintenance downtime, is to upgrade the cooling tower’s fill media to components constructed out of robust and non-clogging materials such as Polypropylene (PP), PVC or stainless steel. Fill is a critical component in the heat transfer ...
