Cooling Tower Water Treatment

Cooling towers can range in size from fairly modest to extremely large, depending on the cooling loads of a facility. Several versions exist, and they're classified by draft type, which can be natural or mechanical, and airflow direction, which is either counterflow or crossflow:

  • Mechanical draft: These towers operate via a fan located at the base or top of the unit. The former is referred to as a forced draft tower, while the latter is known as an induced draft tower. The forced draft version propels air through the water spill area and expels it through the opening at the top. Induced draft towers use the fan to draw air upward as warm condensed air spills downward.
  • Natural draft: Unlike their mechanical draft counterparts, these cooling towers do not use fans to push air out of the tower. Instead, they rely on the principle of differing densities. The warm air within the tower's chimney structure rises because its lower density draws the cooler air to the bottom. Natural draft towers tend to be taller and have a hyperbolic shape to produce adequate airflow.
  • Counterflow towers: A counterflow tower derives its name from the countering action of air flowing upward and water flowing downward. The result is excellent thermal efficiency due to the coolest air contacting the coolest water in the bottom of the unit. These towers typically have a smaller footprint than crossflow versions as well as reduced pump head requirements.
  • Crossflow towers: As the name implies, these towers facilitate horizontal airflow across the water as it falls to the bottom of the unit. The result is lower airflow resistance, which significantly reduces fan horsepower requirements. Crossflow towers also include gravity-fed water decks with openings to allow water to fall through and spread across the tower fill below.

When it comes to cooling tower water treatment, Chardon handles them all and will tailor a maintenance program to meet your specific needs. We'll work closely with your team to provide a cost-effective solution based on the type of cooling tower equipment you use at your facility. As an ISO-certified company, we can complete high-quality work that exceeds your expectations.

Due to its exposure to the outside environment, the cooling tower is the primary source of contamination within your system. Acting as a large air washer, the “open” tower water loop accumulates airborne particulate and promotes biological growth. Through evaporation, it also concentrates mineral content.

Chardon utilizes a full line of corrosion and scale inhibitors, white rust preventatives, and microbiological inhibitors to create a custom chemical plan that addresses these problems and others to keep your cooling towers running efficiently.

Because we don't sell these cooling tower water treatment chemicals, we have a shared interest to keep your system's operating costs as low as possible. We offer our services at an affordable, guaranteed annual price to fit your company's budget. With our transparent pricing structure, you'll never have to worry about hidden fees or add-on expenses driving up costs.

Overview of Our Cooling Tower Water Treatment Products

Our advanced cooling tower water treatment services include the precise utilization of our superior cooling tower inhibitor product line. We have developed products that are specifically designed to treat each specific condition that could lead to contamination.

For instance, some products will eliminate scale in cooling towers with hard, alkaline make-up water, while others will prevent corrosion in systems with soft or low TDS make-up water. Our well-trained, experienced ISO-certified technicians have the expertise to select and apply the right water treatment chemicals for your unique cooling tower maintenance requirements.

Water Treatment Equipment For Cooling Towers

Keeping an effective water treatment program in your cooling tower requires calibrated and functioning equipment. Upgraded and state of the art equipment can help maintain your cooling tower longer, as well as decrease cost of water treatment. Finding proper chemical feed by use of a contact-head water meter, or using a more reliable bleed solenoid can help prevent potential issues.

At Chardon, we offer a selection of cooling tower equipment that will help maintain the tower and the system as a whole. Proper equipment is a must in order to not only prevent scale and corrosion but microbiological growth as well. Having a proper biocide feed into the system is necessary to prevent harmful bacterial growth such as Legionella from becoming a problem.

Cooling Tower Chemicals For Water Treatment

Chemically treating your cooling tower is an essential part of keeping your system efficient and fully operational. Not to mention the savings you'll have from less water usage and less downtime. Chemical treatments also provide a safe solution, assuming you choose the right product for the specific issue you're experiencing and apply it correctly.

Ultimately, treating your cooling tower water with the appropriate chemicals can help control scale, corrosion, algae and harmful bacteria like Legionella Pneumophila.

We have a variety of cooling tower chemicals that you may need for your system:

 

  • Corrosion Protection and Inhibitors: These chemicals help eliminate rust and scale, two of the most common issues that can hinder the performance of your cooling tower equipment and shorten its lifespan.
  • Non-Oxidizing Biocides (for specific systems and forms of biological growth and bacteria): These anti-bacterial chemicals can rectify cooling tower water issues such as biological growth, inferior quality, toxicity and improper pH levels.
  • Oxidizing Biocides (variety of Chlorine and Bromine): These biocides rely on an electron transfer reaction to attack microorganisms in cooling tower water. Their benefits include simple disbursement, easy measuring and hassle-free control.
  • Anti-Foaming Chemicals: Cooling tower water is prone to foaming due to the overfeeding of biocides and similar issues. Anti-foaming chemicals help to eliminate excess foam in the system.
  • Pre-Treatment Chemicals: Pre-treatment of cooling tower water systems is essential for maximizing the lifespan of heat exchange equipment. We offer chemicals that enable the execution of the two phases of pre-treatment: pre-cleaning (removing foreign matter) and pre-filming (promoting the formation of an inhibiting film).

At Chardon Laboratories, we have the expertise to help you choose the right cooling tower treatment chemicals for your equipment and processes. We've developed effective products specifically designed to treat the various issues that impact cooling tower water. We'll also work with you to create and implement a custom-tailored treatment plan that meets your needs and fits your budget.
