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.
