Cooling Tower Tip to Reduce Water Use

Thursday, February 23, 2017  
Did you know that if an 800 ton cooling tower operating at 5 cycles of concentration increased its cycles of concentration to 8, the cooling tower would reduce its water use by 9%, or an estimated 194,000 gallons of water a year? In addition to reducing the cost of water, savings would also include decreased wastewater charges and chemical costs.

Higher cycles of concentration can be achieved through the use of mechanical or chemical water treatment methods such as side stream filtration and water softening, which are eligible for Bucks for Business rebates from Austin Water. To prevent scale from building up, consider installing advanced automation, flow sensors on chemical feeds, level sensors in chemical tanks, and feed verification systems.
