Maintaining consistent water quality throughout the system is important for the health of the entire condenser water system.
Any industry professional would quickly agree that water is the key ingredient to evaporative cooling system performance. For evaporative cooling equipment like cooling towers, evaporative condensers or fluid coolers, water quality is essential for proper heat transfer and the healthy service life of the equipment.
By association, that same water also is essential to operation of the chillers, process equipment or building systems connected to the evaporative cooling equipment. Yet, some operators or building owners fail to recognize how the quality of the available makeup water and ongoing water treatment of the condenser water may impact equipment commissioning, operational water efficiency and lifespan of the equipment.
