Once-through cooling systems are often used to remove heat from surface condensers or to service the Power and Paper industries. Cooling water is only used once and is then discharged, resulting in a highly water intensive operation.
ONCE – THROUGH COOLING
The issues of corrosion, deposition, and microbial growth have to be controlled to maintain efficiency and reliability in a once-through cooling system. Our products include polyphosphates, silicates, and molybdates to control corrosion. Our phosphates and polymer products prevent scale and fouling and our chlorine, bromine, and chlorine dioxide products control microbiological activity and macro-organism fouling.
These chemical treatments have to be applied relative to the quality of the raw water supply. Problems often arise with variable raw water quality because the treatment program have to change in real-time. The best solution is to install a ChemTreat Solutions® system that will monitor the relevant water quality parameters and adjust your chemical feed rates to maintain an optimal treatment program at all times.
