Cooling Tower Chemicals deal with the treatment of cooling tower circulating water. The circulating water for the cooling tower should be filtered for removing particulate matter and to be dosed with microbiocides for the prevention of biological growth, in addition to treating circulating cooling water for the reduction of scaling and fouling in large industrial cooling tower systems. To understand the role of Cooling Tower Chemicals properly, we need to know about the functioning of a Cooling Tower. Cooling towers are considered as heat rejection systems. They work towards the transfer of heat to the atmosphere through the cooling of water to a lower temperature. Some commonly involved applications for cooling towers are water-cooling of equipment, air-conditioning systems and general manufacturing needs. The kind of heat rejection that occurs in a cooling tower is defined as evaporative as it allows a small portion of the water being cooled to evaporate into a moving air stream for providing significant cooling to the rest of that water stream.
The four major problems that are associated with the Cooling Water Systems are corrosion, scale, fouling and biological contamination.
These issues may build up the following problems:
- Reduced efficiency of heat transfer and therefore reduced energy efficiency of the process being cooled
- Equipment repair or replacement cost
- More frequent shutdowns for cleaning and replacement of system components
- Increased fuel costs for power generation plants
- Overall increase in the cost of maintenance
Our Cooling Tower Chemicals help in maintaining the proper condition of the Cooling water systems so that the productivity is maintained.
