Understanding Industrial Filtration

Waters from all over the world may contain suspended solids, microorganisms, and other unwanted contaminants that can cause damage to water systems. Heat exchangers, boiler tubes, cooling tower fill, system piping, etc. can become fouled without proper filtration. This results in a reduction in energy efficiency and increased maintenance repair costs.

Water Treatment Challenges in Thermal Storage Systems

Water Treatment Challenges in Thermal Storage Systems

Thermal energy storage (TES) systems are cooling systems that can use ice banks, brine systems, or chilled water storage tanks to capture BTUs for the purpose of removing a heat load at another point in time. In practice, the chillers for the TES operate outside peak electrical load hours and store the BTUs in the preferred form for use during peak electrical load hours. This practice reduces strain on the electrical grid and provides both cost and energy savings for the owner.
