  • Monitoring once through cooling water - Case study

    The Situation Power plants and paper mills use service water loops and mill water loops respectively for the cooling of lubricating, hydraulic, turbine and transformer oil.  These cooling systems feature large, recirculating volumes of water which are treated with biocides, dispersants, and corrosion inhibitors. By comparison, refineries often ...

  • Republic Steel: CapDI for Cooling Towers - Case Study

    Introduction & process description Water is often a hidden cost of industrial sites and can contribute significantly to operational costs. Cooling towers are used to reject heat through the natural process of evaporation providing cooled water across a broad range of applications. Due to evaporative losses, the water remaining in the cooling tower becomes concentrated with dissolved ...

  • Fungal biodiversity and mycotoxigenic fungi in cooling-tower water systems in Istanbul, Turkey

    This is the first study to assess fungal diversity and mycotoxigenic fungi in open recirculating cooling-tower (CT) water systems (biofilm and water phase). The production capability of mycotoxin from fungal isolates was also examined. The mean fungal count in 21 different water and biofilm samples was determined as 234 CFU/100 mL and 4 CFU/cm2. A total of 32 species were identified by ...

  • Green Urban Infrastructure: Assessing Potential Ecosystem Services in Urban Cities

    Cities all over the world are currently experiencing climate change caused by rapidly increasing atmospheric greenhouse gases (GHGs). Fortunately, cities may mitigate GHG concentrations by incorporating vegetation into green urban infrastructure (GUI) to develop parks, green roofs, waterways, and other structures. For example, plants sequester carbon (C) by removing atmospheric ...

  • 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 ...
