COOLING WATER SYSTEMS

Chemstar WATER has developed and fine-tuned its cooling systems water treatment program and proved itself in helping mitigate the microbiological activity. Chemstar WATER recommends our customers adopt a robust water management program to control microbiological activity, especially Legionella Pneumophila, through effective biofilm control. Chemstar WATER has also proven itself in extending the life of direct and indirect evaporative cooling systems, adiabatic cooling systems, heat exchangers, and once-thru cooling systems including ocean make-up intakes as well as process equipment.

We use state of the art technologies to detect microbiological activity, such as inline adenosine triphosphate (ATP) monitors, proprietary quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) testing systems as well as leveraging our partnerships with reputable laboratories.

Our programs are designed to control mild-steel and copper corrosion, mineral scale deposits, biofilm growth, and system fouling. Our cooling-systems water treatment formulations are environmentally friendly and meet the most stringent discharge guidelines.

Evaporative cooling systems directly affect the water consumption and usage effectiveness of a plant. One way to optimize cooling systems is to pretreat incoming make-up water to remove divalent ions. Due to the lower recovery rates, such systems make improvements limited. Chemstar WATER has jointly developed an electrodialysis reversal-based system to improve the cycles on the concentration of a cooling tower by pretreating the make-up and recovering the cooling tower blowdown, achieving significant water savings.

We tailor water treatment programs specific for each customer. This enables us to achieve peace of mind for our customers through:

  • microbiological control
  • high cycles of concentration
  • low corrosion and scale formation
  • 24/7 remote monitoring of the key indicators with control ranges
  • improved plant uptime by eradicating scale and corrosion-related downtimes
  • regular reporting of key indicators and suggested proactive measures
