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 only 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
Solution Part 2: CTF Treatment System
Our CTF Cooling Tower Treatment System treats and filters the cooling tower water in a side-stream configuration with a unique, three- stage approach. The first stage is our Sediment Shield—a backwashing/self- cleaning, sub-micron filter with proprietary media to remove sediment and bacteria. The second stage is an ultraviolet chamber for bacterial sanitization. The third stage is our No Salt Conditioners, which prevent and remove scale deposits and biofilm. Our CTF System has also proven to reduce or eliminate Legionella.
Solution Part 3: Chemicals
Cooling towers are very difficult to treat effectively. Our CTF Treatment System will significantly reduce the chemicals needed and provide far better overall results. A competent water treatment professional should always be monitoring the system, performing water tests, (like hardness, total bacteria count, legionella, etc.) making adjustments and feeding chemicals as needed.
Superior Results with Significant Savings
The combination our CTF System and a competent water treatment professional will provide the ultimate cooling tower treatment in the industry and will:
- Eliminate scale formation
- Save energy and water
- Dramatically reduce bacteria counts
- 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 groundwater, rivers and streams
