Scale and Corrosion Control
Why do I need to chemically treat my cooling tower? The main purpose of a cooling tower is to reuse water. When the water is reused, pure water is evaporated. As the water evaporates off as pure H20, impurities and/or corrosion levels increase in the recirculating water. Cooling Water Chemicals are then used to maximize the number of times the water may be reused before dumping.
What cooling tower chemical do I use? The type of cooling tower chemical used depends on your make up water pH and calcium levels. Knowing these two factors will determine the cooling tower chemical blend required to minimize corrosion and/or scaling.
