Cooling Tower Water Treatment (HX)
Whether you have a cooling system that uses air, cooling towers or a hybrid, it is essential to know how effective/efficient your system is operating and whether it needs Cooling Tower Water Treatment.
How do Hydro-X support your Cooling Tower Water Treatment?
Hydro-X will support with advanced monitoring and control solutions to complement our unique chemical treatments and filtration to minimise, bacteria, scaling or corrosion. We provide this through locally based and trained water treatment experts who deliver same-day service reports, and dedicated hygiene cleaning teams to maintain a clean and healthy system.
Well maintained and serviced systems produce the most efficient, and therefore cost-effective, utility that meets the demand of a changing environment as remain in compliance with relevant legionella legislation.
Why choose to do Cooling Tower Water Treatment?
If left alone, cooling systems can turn deadly. This may sound like scaremongering but unfortunately it’s the truth.
Deadly bacteria loves to grow in cooling systems if it gets the chance and if effective treatment (i.e. corrosion control) is not used to combat this, it can happen faster than you think.
This is why it is so vital to prevent scale formation with scale control in cooling water systems. Breeding grounds for bacteria (including Legionella) are created if scale is allowed to grow, and this can cause the water to inflict potentially fatal illnesses. Legionnaires disease is one that Hydro X have continously prevented over 30 years of business with water treatment products and treatment solutions.
A Cost Effective Solution
Hydro X are happy to cater to your cooling tower water treatment needs, whatever they may be. We can implement an add-on to your system which activates or increases Reverse Osmosis and helps to dispose of suspended solids.
Heat transfer efficiencies and concentration factors are improved, giving the chance for the cooling tower to run more smoothly overall. As discussed above we aim to encourage a successful Ion Exchange and reduce water operational costs (that includes with cooling towers).
What is a Scale Inhibitor?
These are classed as elements that look to resist scale from forming within water systems (whether that be if the exterior material is stainless steel or otherwise). When added into the liquid (that would normally produce small of even hefty scale deposits) the chemicals stop deposits being formed, or atleast greatly reduce the opportunity.
They can also be used in fracture fluid but they are not necessarily directly mixed with the fluid as this can have a negative effect. Rather than being an underlying addition to an already successful system they can cause issues for different processes – especially nucleation.
What is a Corrosion Inhibitor?
With the purpose of decreasing a corrosion rate, these chemical compounds stop solids ‘gnawing through’ after coming into first-hand contact with a liquid. There are several variables which can heighten or weaken the effectiveness including the structure of the flow, flow rate, water quantity and solid composition.
