Our Cooling Tower Cleaning and Disinfection Programs contribute directly to key intangible value drivers that do not appear on financial statements, by improving the customer experience, increasing worker productivity and enhancing brand equity. The Cleaning and Disinfection Programs also contribute indirectly by creating value for external stakeholders including communities, public interest groups, and regulatory agencies.
COOLING TOWER CLEANING
We at EE&G understand water efficiency is a high priority and ask estimate the quantities and costs of treatment chemicals, volumes of blowdown water, and the expected cycles of concentration ratio. We help you improve water efficiency because it means the facility will purchase fewer chemicals. In some cases, saving on chemicals can outweigh the savings on water costs. Our treatment programs include routine checks of cooling system chemistry accompanied by regular service reports that provide insight into the system’s performance.
COOLING TOWER INSTALLATION
Ate EE&G we install cooling towers of all sizes. In addition to installing towers on new construction projects, we are able to perform demolition and replacement with new towers. Many cooling towers require a lot of parts to be assembled. The Pipefitters involved in the installation of cooling towers are very meticulous to detail when assembling cooling towers.
What is a Cooling Tower?
A cooling tower is a device that releases waste heat to the atmosphere by a cooling of a water stream to a lower temperature. There are two ways a cooling tower works. The first way is using the evaporation of water to remove process heat and cool the working fluid to the wet-bulb air temperature. Wet-bulb temperature is the temperature a parcel of air would have if it were cooled to saturation (100% relative humidity) by evaporating of water into it, with the latent being supplied by the parcel. The second way a cooling tower works is by using a closed circuit dry cooling tower. In a closed circuit, the cooling tower relies on air to cool the working fluid to near dry-bulb air temperature. Dry-bulb temperature is the temperature of air measured by a thermometer freely exposed to the air shielded from radiation and moisture.
IS COOLING TOWER MANAGEMENT IMPORTANT?
Cooling towers are used in oil refineries, petrochemical, chemical plants, thermal power stations, and HVAC systems. Cooling tower cools the circulating water in plants. For HVAC system cooling tower dispose of the unwanted heat from chillers. Water-cooled chillers are generally more efficient than air-cooled chillers. Air-cooled chillers require more maintenance since air filters are required. The air filters get clogged easily with all the debris in the outside are that is used to cool the chillers.
Impurities in water can lead to the following undesirable conditions in your cooling tower system:
- Deposition and scale: Minerals and other contaminants in untreated water can collect and form scale on cooling tower equipment. These deposits have an insulating effect that reduces heat transfer efficiency. They can also restrict water flow and impact process efficiency, as well as contribute to corrosion.
- Corrosion: Improper pH, chemical reactions in the water and other factors can contribute to corrosion of cooling tower equipment. Corrosion can result in decreased efficiency, shortened equipment life, and costly downtime.
- Biological contamination: Cooling towers are ideal environments for the growth of algae, bacteria and other microscopic organisms. Left unchecked, they can clog spray nozzles and other equipment, interfere with heat transfer, contribute to corrosion and create unsanitary conditions. Of special concern is the growth of
Proactive treatment of cooling tower water is critical to keeping these factors in check — and to maintaining proper standards for health and environmental regulation, as well as cooling tower cost efficiency.
