Cooling Water


Most industrial production processes need cooling water for efficient, proper operation. Refineries, steel mills, petrochemical plants, manufacturing facilities, food plants, large buildings, chemical processing plants and electric utilities all rely on the cooling water system to do its job.

Cooling water systems control temperatures and pressures by transferring heat from hot process fluids into the cooling water, which carries the heat away. The cooling system operation can directly affect reliability, efficiency,and cost of any industrial, institutional or power industry process. Monitoring and maintaining control of corrosion, deposition, microbial growth and system operation is essential to provide the optimum Total Cost of Operation (TCO).

Optimal selection and operation of a cooling water treatment system reduces water, wastewater, chemical and energy costs.
