Why Are Cooling Towers Needed?

Cooling towers are not just needed in one industry. In fact, there are many different kind of facilities that need a cooling tower for efficient, proper operation. One of the most common is industrial production processes which need a cooling water to keep their machines cool. Refineries, petrochemical plants, food plants, manufacturing facilities, steel mills, chemical processing plants, large buildings, and electric utilities all rely on the cooling water system to do their job. How do water cooling tower systems do this? They control temperatures and pressures of hot fluids by transferring the heat from these hot fluids into the cooling water. As this happens over time, the cooling water heats up, and it must be either cooled before it can be used again or replaced with fresh, clean water. The cooling system design, effectiveness, and efficiency all depend on the type of process being cooled, the characteristics of the water moving through it, and environmental considerations surrounding the unit. To help maintain the cooling tower, a monitoring and treatment program will need to be implemented for optimal uptime.

Why is Monitoring, Control, and Treatment Important?

The cooling system’s operation can directly affect reliability, efficiency, and the cost of any industrial, institutional, or power industry process. Monitoring and maintaining control of corrosion, deposition, microbial growth, and system operation is essential to provide the most amount of uptime for the cooling system. The big step to achieving outstanding uptime is choosing an appropriate treatment program for your water cooling tower solution to minimize system stresses. This process will require regularly scheduled monitoring for your system. It is used to determine treatment effectiveness, to establish the optimum level of treatment that is most cost effective (in respect to energy, water, and chemical usage), and to prevent corrosion from building up in the system.
