Summary: U.S. Federal Energy Management Program Technical Evaluation of Side Stream Filtration for C

Cooling tower system operation is most efficient when the heat transfer surfaces are clean. The combination of the evaporation process combined with environmental factors create four basic treatment concerns:

  • Corrosion of system components and metallurgy

  • Scaling of dissolved minerals

  • Fouling from suspended particles and biologic growth

  • Microbiological Activity or living organisms that are supported and thrive in the open, recirculating environment.​

Effective management of these conditions leads to increased equipment life, a safer and cleaner work environment, and, often times, significant energy savings. A combined approach of chemical treatment combined with side-stream filtration has been determined to be the most effective approach to clean and efficient system maintenance.
