Cooling towers can be a critical process in many industrial production facilities. An industrial cooling tower can be the perfect media for biological growth if not properly treated. Typical pH is 7-9 and temperatures may have a wide range. In a cooling tower, the water trickles down a large surface area in order to air-cool the water. The natural evaporation provides the cooling necessary to reuse the water. As water evaporates, minerals and contaminants in the water concentrate. These minerals and contaminants will eventually reach a concentration where they will cause problems and interfere with the performance of both the tower and the cooling system, itself. Fouling and corrosion of the cooling tower can impact treatment, and impact heat transfer losses causing decrease in efficiency and increased power consumption.
