Cooling Tower Efficiency Leads To Other Efficiencies

How does increased efficiency in a cooling tower lead to increased efficiency elsewhere? As mentioned before, as water efficiency increases, less blowdown is required.  As a result, less chemical is used which results in both economic and environmental benefits. In many cases, a sewer credit is available and reducing the blowdown increases cost savings. If a system has significant scale …

Water Savings From Cooling Tower Efficiency Strategies

What kind of water savings can be gained from focusing on cooling towers? The current cycle of concentration will be the best predictor of how much water can be saved; the lower the cycles, the more opportunity for savings. Typically, the average cooling tower will operate at two to four cycles of concentration. There is often an opportunity to raise …

Minimizing Cooling Tower Blowdown

How much are you limited by blowdown? How can you mitigate its effects? Generally, the goal is to minimize cooling tower blowdown because that means you are running at a higher cycle of concentration and therefore the system is operating more efficiently. Another benefit of reducing blowdown is the corresponding reduction in the volume of chemicals being discharged to waste.  …
