The Four Seasons Of Your Cooling Systems
Your cooling system faces unique challenges and demands depending on the weather outside. We can help you get organized for any season, so you can avoid costly mistakes that tax your systems and damage your equipment.
WinterEven if your system is laid up or running at a lower capacity, that doesn't mean it's not at risk for damage. Learn the most common winter threats to cooling systems.
SpringMake sure your system has a clean bill of health after the winter, and follow proper start-up procedures to maximize your efficiency in the upcoming warm weather months.
SummerYour system gets a real workout during summer. Keep it running smoothly by knowing these cooling water system maintenance tips.
FallFall is a critical time to prep your system for cold weather. Winterize to prevent costly damage, using our 3-step winterization checklist.
Cooling Tower WinterizationWe can help you plan for proper shut-down and low-load of your cooling towers and protect them from off-season corrosion and fouling.
Closed-Loop WinterizationWe can winterize your pipes and cooling equipment, develop your glycol formula and administer it to protect your HVAC system.
3 Problems In Your Cooling Water
SCALEWater removes heat through evaporation. In the process, minerals concentrate in the recirculating water. Scale forms on critical surfaces, diminishing their ability to transfer heat effectively – making your systems work harder and use more energy.
MICROBIOLOGYWater absorbs heat from your facility. Microorganisms thrive in warmer temperatures. Fouling and corrosion of surfaces occurs. Pathogens can get airborne and threaten the health of your people.
CORROSIONWater is a universal solvent. Manufactured metals are inherently unstable. Electrochemical reactions take place creating irreparable damage and reducing the life of your mechanicals.
How Does This Impact Me?
Your facility’s cooling system was designed to use water because it is available and efficient. In theory, this should be saving you money in lower energy and utility costs. But in reality, water-related problems rob you of these savings and compromise the reliability of your cooling. Preventing these problems is not hard. We’ve helped over 4,000 commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities with proven water treatment programs that work.
A Cooling Water Program That Works
The Right ChemistryChemical formulations and mechanical processes create water conditions that prevent scale, minimize corrosion, and control microbiological growth.
The Right ControlEquipment controls ensure the right water conditions are consistently maintained for your systems to perform reliably and efficiently.
The Right ServiceWe are on-site regularly to report performance and detect potential problems that could impact your results.
Your Next Step
All water is local and no two facilities are the same. When you schedule a site visit, we will walk through your facility to collect system data and water samples. Our lab will perform a detailed analysis and we’ll present you with a custom cooling water program that is guaranteed to get your water systems operating at maximum potential.
