Why do cooling towers need water treatment?
Despite the fact that cooling towers are often among the most cost-effective cooling mechanisms when compared to other cooling technologies (such as many dry air cooling systems), it is still critical to monitor and run your industrial cooling tower as smoothly as possible.
1: Plant maintenance crews are vital to keeping cooling towers running at maximum efficiency. They concentrate on minimizing mineral scale deposition, reducing corrosion, restricting bacterial growth, and managing fouling in plant equipment. Best maintenance practices have been modified to cover the functioning of cooling towers in a way that minimizes fresh water withdrawal rates and creates less effluent as a result of the growing importance of water conservation.
2: Dissolved matter is concentrated as water passes through industrial cooling equipment. It also gathers up particle contaminants from the surfaces it comes into contact with.
What is the importance of Industrial Water Treatment?
The main goal of water treatment and industrial unit operations is to:
i) Reduce or eliminate carryover,
ii) Avoid corrosion and scale formation, and
iii) Extend the life of equipment like heat exchangers and cooling towers.
Impact of Water quality on cooling towers
The water quality has a big impact on concentration cycles and cooling tower efficiency.
1: To reduce the total dissolved solids (TDS) content of the water and reduce chemical use, Netsol first employs established technologies such as reverse osmosis (RO).
2: Water hardness, or the presence of minerals in the water (particularly magnesium, calcium, and iron), can have a significant impact on the cooling tower's longevity and efficiency. You can soften your water by putting lime in it or by using a resin. Because the resin is intended to have a stronger affinity for elements like calcium and magnesium, it will release the sodium and capture the minerals in the water as the hard water passes through. This will increase the quality of your water while preventing the introduction of dangerous by-products.
Benefits of using soft water in cooling towers
Soft make-up water has a number of advantages over hard water when it comes to cooling tower systems:
1. Calcium precipitates, which account for 90% of the scale minerals in cooling towers, are eliminated by soft water.
2. Lesser anti-scalant (chemical) dose indicates lower scale risk.
3. Excess carbonate and bicarbonate alkalinity, which is common in cooling water, creates a natural passivation effect that lasts even with soft water and prevents corrosion.
4. The natural corrosion passivation action reduces the need for chemical treatment.
5. Soft water enables higher concentration cycles in the cooling tower system, resulting in reduced water use.
6. Membrane softening is insufficient since it removes alkalinity as well as calcium and magnesium.
