Heat exchangers remove unwanted heat and typically transfer it to a recirculating cooling water stream. The cooling water temperature will be elevated as it absorbs heat from process and utility equipment, which is then expelled through partial evaporation of the water across a cooling tower. Several problems may arise in this heat transfer process as issues like corrosion, scale, fouling, and microbial growth will reduce flow rates and heat transfer rates and lower system efficiency.
Filtrex Solutions field engineers are experts at customizing treatment programs to ensure heat exchangers operate at peak efficiency and the cooling water system effectively reduces the process fluid temperature. We have expertise with a variety of different heat exchanger designs including:
- Shell and Tube
- Plate and Frame
- Exposed Tube
