Open recirculating cooling systems are used in many industrial plants.  Cooling towers, a critical component in these systems, reject waste heat to the atmosphere by evaporating water but also act as air-scrubbers and can collect significant amounts of airborne contaminants.  These contaminants (organics, sand, soil, construction debris/dirt, etc.) often build up to significant levels in the system and are not efficiently removed by normal tower blowdown, which can result in fouling that reduces system efficiency, can be a site for growth of bacteria and organisms, and result in increased usage of water treatment chemicals.  

In closed cooling system loops, corrosion by-products such as iron/rust can foul heat exchangers, create locations for bacteria to proliferate, and result in under-deposit corrosion issues.    

Sidestream filtration is a recognized method of reducing contaminants in both open and closed recirculating water systems.  Both the US Department of Energy and the cooling tower manufacturers advocate the installation of a filter on these systems as a best practice.  This webinar will review some of the fouling and bacterial issues caused by contaminants in cooling systems, and will present the benefits and methods of various filtration techniques.
