A Method to Accurately Measure System Volumes for Cooling Towers and Closed Loop Systems

Cooling towers or closed loop systems require continuous treatment. But to achieve effective water treatment in either of these settings, the precise system volume must be known. This is particularly essential when adding biocides to ensure the correct amount of treatment is added. Although there are many ways to measure volumes, many are inexact and hard to execute. There are three ways typically used to determine system volumes.

How Cooling Tower Systems Work

Cooling towers are recirculating water systems used to remove heat from building air conditioning equipment and industrial processes. They require specialized maintenance to ensure safe, efficient, and reliable operation, including an effective water treatment program.  By understanding how cooling tower systems function, facility owners and operators can operate and maintain their systems more effectively.

Dead Legs, Biofilm, and Legionnaires Disease

Dead legs in building water systems can cause severe problems, including persistent positive Legionella test results and an increased incidence of Legionnaires’ disease. A basic understanding of dead legs, how to recognize them, and how to manage the problems they cause can help building owners reduce the risks associated with Legionella and other pathogens in their water systems.

Cooling Tower Cleaning and Disinfection Pays Off

Cooling towers continuously scrub bacteria, dust, pollen, insects, and other debris from the air during routine operation. Without good maintenance, including regular cleaning and disinfection, these contaminants can cause serious problems that reduce the life, efficiency, reliability, and safety of building HVAC systems.
