  • Cooling tower water treatment – 3 ways to handle cooling tower operations

    Cooling tower water treatment is one of the most important factors to enhance the performance and reduce the maintenance cost of cooling systems. Cooling towers are large evaporation systems that evaporate water to remove heat to cool process water in applications including, air-conditioning systems, water cooling for equipment and general manufacturing requirements. The heated water is typically ...

  • It’s Time to Rethink Cooling Tower Filtration

    ABSTRACTThe dissipation of ambient or process heat in large HVAC systems, manufacturing facilities, power generation plants, refineries, metal mills and forges, chemical plants and food processors is most often accomplished by cooling towers. These simple structures facilitate the transfer of unwanted energy (heat) from a transport liquid (usually water) to the atmosphere. The bane of cooling ...

  • Economical calculations for the use of Ozone in Cooling Towers

    Abstract 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 reduced on-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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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: ...

  • COOL AS ICE New Canadian-made technology reduces water usage to redefine green cleaning

    Water is one of the most essential human needs. Yet, for something so key to life, hundreds of millions of gallons of H2O are wasted each year on industrial cleaning applications. The ecological impact of this type of consumption is a real concern and has led to the development of an innovative cleaning technology that could potentially replace high-water usage cleaning methods, such as pressure ...

  • Maintenance To-Do: Coil Cleaning

    A coil-cleaning program should be an integral part of maintaining some kinds of process cooling equipment. Most people think of coil cleaning as a building or facility prepares to turn on the air-conditioners for another season. Admittedly, spring is a perfect time to put such cleaning and maintenance at the top of the to-do list. Condenser and evaporator coils are an integral part of HVAC ...

  • The natural way to clean wastewater

    John Todd founded Ocean Arks International in the 1980s, where he started to experiment with processes that mimic natural ways to purify wastewater. He built a greenhouse and ran sewage through a series of tanks, with plants suspended in the flowing waters, and constructed marshes made of sand and gravel. No chemicals were added, but plenty of aquatic creatures from snails to small fish were ...
