How Does Cooling Tower Water Treatment Work?

Cooling tower water treatment is an integral part of many industrial plants and processes.  Here’s an overview: Cooling water is commonly used to reject heat from a chiller or manufacturing process. Untreated cooling water will allow scale to form, corrode system metallurgy, and support the growth of slime-forming microorganisms in heat-exchange equipment. A proper water treatment program for Read More
