To keep the cooling tower running safely and reliably, you'll need to implement a regular water treatment programme.
Choosing the right chemicals for your cooling tower water treatment can help you achieve the following goals:
• Corrosion and scale reduction
• Improve the efficiency of cooling towers
• Increase the system's lifetime
You must adjust your water treatment programme to the exact conditions of the cooling tower in order to reap these benefits.
What Is the Purpose of Cooling Tower Water Treatment?
Water treatment is required for cooling towers in order to keep operating costs low and cooling efficiency high. You're more likely to have rust, scale, and microbial growth in your cooling tower if you don't treat your water – or if you use the improper chemicals.
While these problems can result in cooling tower damage and additional maintenance time, they can also improve operational efficiency by affecting heat transfer. If scale, filth, or microbial deposit coats your heat transfer surfaces, it reduces your tower's capacity to cool with water, resulting in higher operational and energy expenses.
Which chemical is used for cooling tower?
Mechanical filtration and side-stream filtration are commonly used in cooling tower water treatment, however the effectiveness and effect of your water treatment are typically determined by the chemicals you choose. Chemically treating cooling tower water helps to balance the chemical qualities of the water, making it ready for other treatment processes.
The following are the most commonly utilised compounds in cooling tower water treatment:
1: Inhibitors of Corrosion and Scale
If you want to keep your cooling tower from degrading, corrosion and scale inhibitors can help you delay or avoid the growth of scale in your system. Low doses of a few ppm or less are often all that's required to keep cooling tower scale at bay for long periods of time, making these products extremely effective.
2:Biocides and Algaecides
Microbiological growth must be controlled in order to maintain ideal water conditions. You can control any build-up and the associated bio-corrosion that happens under slime deposits by using carefully selected biocides in combination with dispersants. Depending on your water treatment demands, you can use both oxidising and non-oxidizing biocides for whole system management.
3: pH Reducing Agents
Lower pH levels can exacerbate corrosion, hence alkalinity adjusters or pH adjusters can help minimise corrosion in cooling towers. The pH of your cooling tower water should be about 10 or higher, according to Netsol. You can use an alkalinity adjuster to maintain your cooling tower free of corrosion if you need to raise the pH level of your water.
Is it Really Necessary to Use Ultra-Concentrated Products?
While normal water treatment chemicals are frequently sent with a lot of water, ultra-concentrated products use the least amount of water possible to achieve the maximum concentration of active components. Soap mixtures and laundry detergent capsules work on the same principle. The final product contains approximately 90-98 percent active components.Plant managers are increasingly turning to ultra-concentrated products because they solve many of the issues that conventional, non-concentrated products have.
Non-concentrated materials are notoriously difficult to work with and come with a slew of drawbacks, including:
1: Higher delivery costs
2: There are more leaks and spills
3: Drums that take up a lot of room
4: Heavy containers that must be moved with forklifts
Instead, ultra-concentrated products are shipped in compact containers weighing only a few pounds or less, making them easy to transport and store around the facility. Ultra-concentrated treatments can function just as well – if not better – than normal products when properly designed by a cooling tower water treatment expert. Ultra-concentrated chemical products should be considered by anyone interested in more efficient cooling tower water treatment.
