Not All Water Supplies are the Same

How Blended Water Supplies Impact Water Treatment

Not All Water Supplies are the Same

The source(s) of water supplied to cooling towers, boilers, and processes may vary greatly daily or even hourly.  The impact this has on water systems must be closely monitored to avoid scale, deposits, corrosion, inefficient water usage, and other negative impacts on operational costs.

How Often Should I Test My Water?

Chem-Aqua representatives are frequently asked, “How often do I need to test my water?”  The answer to this question is as varied as the systems that Chem-Aqua treats.  There are a number of factors that go into determining the “best practice” for each facility.  Typically, these factors are:

How to Keep Your Cooling Tower Clean

Cottonseed and Other Spring Associated Problems:

Every spring we welcome the milder weather, and with it, various plant and animal life. However, not all of nature’s gifts are beneficial to our evaporative cooling systems; especially the outdoor cooling towers that reject heat from our commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities. Late wintry storms can cause ice and snow accumulation. Heavy rain and hail can disrupt the anticipated easing of the harsh environmental conditions of winter.

Water-Cooled vs. Air-Cooled Equipment:

How Should You Stay Cool?

Water-Cooled vs. Air-Cooled Equipment:

When seeking to cool a large scale commercial or industrial facility, insufficient information often leads to an unsatisfactory solution. While some stakeholders choose water-cooled chillers because they believe the cooling tower in these systems offers more efficiency, others prefer air-based cooling systems because of the less prohibitive upfront price. And with recent technological advances made in both air and water-based chilling systems, determining which option is the right fit has become even more challenging. To decide which system best suits a specific project’s needs, it’s important to understand the pros and cons associated with each option.

Chlorine Testing In Cooling Tower Systems

A wide range of chlorine based biocides can be used to control microbiological growth in cooling tower systems.  They all form oxidizing agents in water that can kill microorganisms. However, there are considerable differences in oxidizing power, stability, volatility, and reactions with various compounds found in water. Routine testing is important to confirm effective chlorine residuals are maintained. Low residuals can result in poor microbiological control. High residuals can cause corrosion and destroy inhibitors.
