  • Cooling tower water treatment is essential to the
    overall operation of the cooling tower. But how
    do you know when it is time to treat the cooling
    tower water? Here are a few warning signs that
    will tell you a cooling water treatment system is
    needed for your plant.
  • Cooling tower water treatment is essential to the
    overall operation of the cooling tower. Failure
    to properly treat the cooling tower water on a
    regular basis or whenever needed will lead to a
    variety of issues including but not limited to
    corrosion, fouling, organic growth, and scaling.
    All of these issues can not only cause plant
    downtime, decreased performance, and reduced
    plant productivity, but they can likewise lead to
    costly repair and replacement.

When you are reusing water supply
But how do you know when it is time to treat the
cooling tower water? Here are a few warning signs
that will tell you a cooling water treatment
system is needed for your plant.
  • If you are trying to reuse or recycle the water
    instead of flushing it out into the environment,
    you will need to properly and regularly treat the
    cooling tower blowdown. You may need to consult a
    water treatment specialist or contact the best
    cooling tower company in India for this.

Water gets too acidic or too alkaline
  • Cooling tower water needs to be regulated and has
    to stay within the neutral pH level. When the
    cooling tower water gets acidic, it will increase
    the likelihood and speed of corrosion and scale
    formation.
  • Having a too high or too low pH or alkaline level
    would mean that it is about time to treat the
    water. Please note, though, that the proper water
    alkalinity greatly depends on the source of the
    water and the type of cooling system that you
    use.

6
Microbial growth in the cooling tower water
  • The water in the cooling tower is susceptible to
    the growth of microorganisms and can be a
    breeding ground for algae, fungi, and harmful
    bacteria like legionella. Microbial growth, if
    left unaddressed, can cause corrosion, fouling
    and other system issues. If you notice the growth
    of bacteria in the cooling tower water, you may
    need to test and treat the water even before the
    scheduled date.

Presence of high hardness and total dissolved
solids (TDS)
  • According to the water cooling towers
    manufacturers in India, the presence or build-up
    of high hardness and total dissolved solids (TDS)
    on heat transfers or heat exchange surfaces, and
    other internal piping indicates that a cooling
    tower water treatment is needed.
  • TDS, whether it is the form of calcium carbonate
    or not, can cause heavy scaling. Over time,
    scaling can clog up and damage the internal
    pipes, heat exchange surfaces, and even the
    entire cooling system. It likewise greatly reduce
    the efficiency of the cooling tower, minimize
    heat dispersal, and lead to failure or downtime.
    Scaling can likewise cause a hike in energy
    consumption.

  • Treating the cooling tower water prevents the
    build-up of solids and hardness. And in the case
    when these solids and hardness are already in the
    system, water and makeup water chemistry
    treatment will remove them properly in blowdown.

Endnote
  • Proper and regular maintenance and water
    treatment do not only help maintain the good
    working condition of the cooling tower, they
    likewise help it run properly, smoothly, and at
    its peak efficiency. Moreover, proper maintenance
    and water treatment also help you make sure that
    the cooling tower parts are free from any damage
    or threat, thus avoiding costly repair and
    replacement and ensuring a longer lifespan.
