Without effective water treatment, a cooling water system can suffer from scale formation, corrosion and fouling and may become a breeding ground for harmful bacteria such as those which cause Legionnaires' Disease. This reduces efficiency, shortens plant life and makes your operation unreliable and unsafe.
Poor control can not only put your cooling process at risk, but can also squander millions in wasted energy, chemicals and water charges.
The purpose of a cooling water treatment programme is essentially 3 fold: to protect the system against damaging corrosion; to control scale formation and fouling which will impair cooling efficiency; and to control the growth of harmful microbes like legionella bacteria. These problems are interrelated and it is therefore essential that the treatment programme tackles all of them.
