Cooling towers dissipate heat from recirculating water used to cool chillers, air conditioners, or other downstream process equipment to the ambient air. Through the process of evaporation, heat is rejected to the environment, causing cooling towers to use significant amounts of water.
Cooling towers are open to environmental and water quality supply factors. As water is evaporated in the cooling process minerals are precipitated onto cooling tower fill, basin, and downstream equipment as scale. Cooling towers are efficient air cleaners as dust and dirt are sucked into the cooling tower and settle in the basin, fill, and downstream equipment as mud and sludge. However, this combination of water temperature, scale, mud, and sludge provides the perfect habitat for biological growth of bacteria, legionella, and algae.
Typical cooling tower problems include;
Reducing running costs by 30 to 50%, the Watercube is designed on a custom manufactured aluminum or 316SS skid, which is installed as a side stream either alongside or below the cooling tower. The configuration of the Watercube can be custom manufactured to meet your specific requirements. Various sizes and flow rates are available to suit your specific cooling tower.
