Increased Cooling

A thorough understanding of the factors that affect the capacity of cooling water heat exchangers to remove heat from critical industrial process is essential if a program is to be effectively designed that can maximize the heat transfer capacity in an operating plant.

The graph below shows that scale deposits, biofilm from microbiological growth and iron oxide deposits can all reduce heat transfer capacity.

The ZI-CHEM® cooling water program includes the capabilities to predict and measure the various components of the scale deposits, and the chemical programs to minimize these, along with monitoring systems to evaluate the result, and optimize the performance on an ongoing basis.
