Any engineer or maintenance person responsible for cooling towers or evaporative condensers is well aware of the water treatment issues with these systems. Scale build-up, corrosion and biological issues, such as Legionella, are the most common issues that cause this equipment to suffer.
Problems with Traditional Cooling Tower Treatment
The treatment solution provided by chemical treatment companies has typically been to use more and more chemicals because that is their business model. For this reason, solutions that reduce chemicals have been discouraged and there has been little real innovation for decades. The result has been lots of money wasted on chemicals, energy and water.
Additionally, this has resulted in a massive and largely unnecessary amount of chemical pollution.
Solution Part 1: Makeup Water Treatment
If the water being used for makeup to the cooling tower system is relatively hard, we use our SmartGuard RO (reverse osmosis) System to remove most of the minerals in the water prior to sending it to the cooling towers. This is the best method to prevent scale formation in a cooling water system while saving water and using no antiscalant chemicals.
Solution Part 2: Side-Stream Filtration/Treatment
Our EasyWater CTF System (Cooling Tower Filtration System) continually filters and treats the cooling tower water. It has a backwashing/self-cleaning, 3 micron filter to remove dirt and bacteria, No-Salt Conditioner treatment to reduce scale formation and break down the cell wall of bacteria, and a BacteriaShield UV System to continually kill 99+% of the bacteria.
Superior Results with Significant Savings
The combination of the SmartGuard RO System providing perfect makeup water and the CTF System continually filtering and treating the circulating water provides the ultimate and most dependable treatment in the industry. This will typically eliminate all chemicals except for a very small ongoing residual of oxidizing biocide for Legionella purposes. In addition, EasyWater cooling water treatment will:
- Eliminate scale formation
- Save energy and water
- Significantly reduce the risk of Legionella
- Extend equipment life of cooling towers, chillers and pumping equipment
- Minimize maintenance on equipment
- Considerably reduce chemical pollution that ends up in ground water, rivers and streams
EasyWater will provide the best treatment solution for your cooling towers and evaporative condensers, provide regular onsite service and guarantee the results.
