Is there more to Cooling Tower Water Treatment than compliance?

Answer – Yes!

A technically correct water treatment program is essential for more ways than one:

  1. Compliance
  2. Optimisation on both Water and Energy control
  3. Plant Longevity
  4. Preventing down time – loss of production/process

How can you be sure that you are receiving the right water treatment program to ensure all 4 elements are being covered? Let look at the areas that will affect the outcome of the program

The Causative Map

The Causative Map demonstrates all the elements that effect the overall water treatment program. All four boxes are interlinked, so if any one box is allowed to be present in a water treatment program, all four will eventually be present to the detriment of the water treatment program. This would compromise compliance, plant longevity, water & energy optimisation and would likely lead to process or production downtime.

At Hydro-X Water, we recognise the importance of ensuring the water treatment program that we design enables us to control all four elements. This control can optimise the plant longevity, prevent downtime and loss of production, produce water & energy savings and ensure compliance is met.

Our range of “beyond threshold” scale and corrosion inhibitors come with PTSA technology built in as standard. This allows us to optimise on straight line scale and corrosion inhibition. Our range of biocide and dispersants can be dosed and controlled by ion specific probes to prevent over dosing, thereby ensuring corrosion is controlled. This, coupled with the ability to measure corrosion real time, provide the optimum in cooling tower treatment control.

Why not take this one step further and look at how Hydro-X Water can help you recover the Cooling Water Bleed water that normally goes to foul drain, and is normally circa 33% of the make up water used to run the cooling towers, we can safely recover a substantial proportion of this waste water and reuse this as cooling water make up, this providing lower conductivity make up water and enable higher cycles of concentration, therefore reducing the total water make up, lower conductivity water, a reduction in chemicals used, reducing energy and CO2. And less water going to the effluent treatment plant – where there are additional costs associated with treating this water.
