Cooling Systems Industrial

Why Cooling Systems Require Regular Descaling

Industrial equipment relies on cooling systems to ensure proper temperatures are maintained.  However, when hard water scale builds up, it can hinder proper functioning of the system.  An electronic water conditioner system can prevent hard water damage.  A water conditioner is a form of hard water treatment in that it prevents hard water damage by sending an inaudible signal through the pipe which causes turbulence in the water molecules and ion exchange in mineral atoms.  Crystals are unable to adhere to any surface; thus hard scale cannot form. As a result, existing scale not only goes away, it never returns again.

Since most cooling systems use water as the main coolant, a water conditioner is important for limescale removal and prevention.  Electronic water conditioner systems are effective when it comes to limescale removal and are used in industrial applications to prevent the degradation of expensive cooling systems.

Cooling towers also rely on industrial water conditioner systems for limescale removal and prevention.  Cooling towers re-use water, causing pure water to be evaporated.  As a result, many impurities, including limescale, remain. A water conditioner stabilizes the PH of the circulating water, thus preventing corrosion, controlling algae and bacteria and removing existing limescale.

When you consider the cost of damage that can occur to cooling systems and cooling towers, a water conditioner is an inexpensive option. The ScaleBlaster water conditioning system is a respected and proven limescale remover for industrial applications.  Best of all, it also preserves the integrity of your equipment by preventing new scale from forming.  Contact one of ScaleBlaster’s industrial dealers / specialists to learn more. We work with industries throughout the United States and abroad.

Combating the Need for Cooling Tower Biocide

Combating the Need for Cooling Tower Biocide

Cooling towers are designed to reuse water.  During this process, the “pure” water is evaporated, while the impurities remain.  These impurities cause numerous problems, including high levels of lime scale, which eventually leads to corrosion. A cooling tower biocide is used to combat these issues.  Chemical treatment for cooling towers is determined by the calcium and PH levels of the water and may be in the form of either an oxidizer biocide or non-oxidizer biocide.  An oxidizer cooling tower biocide is usually comprised of sodium bromide or sodium hypochlorite and is generally used on a daily basis. A non-oxidizer cooling tower biocide (i.e. glutaraldehyde) is used as needed.

The cost of the chemical treatment of cooling towers can add up, especially when you figure in expenses such as the chemicals themselves and maintenance staff.  This is where an electronic water decaler / electronic water conditioner, such as ScaleBlaster, comes into play.  ScaleBlaster uses no chemicals and requires no maintenance.  It is easy to install and never comes into contact with the water.  An electronic water conditioner emits sonic waves and allows the PH of the circulating water to naturally elevate and stabilize.  The corrosive properties of the water are reduced and existing lime scale is removed.  ScaleBlaster also controls algae and bacteria. A one-time investment in a ScaleBlaster industrial unit can save you thousands of dollars a year on chemicals, repairs and ongoing maintenance.

Power plants around the world, including in the United States, China and Mexico, are turning to ScaleBlaster.  Visit our Dealers page to find a ScaleBlaster representative near you.

Cooling Tower Water Treatment – Why It’s Important to Use an Electronic Water Conditioner

Cooling Tower Water Treatment – Why It’s Important to Use an Electronic Water Conditioner

Cooling tower chemistry naturally results in large amounts of algae. This produces very high levels of limescale, which eventually leads to costly repairs and corrosion.  Cooling tower biocide can be used to help alleviate this problem. However, cooling tower biocides generally use harsh and potentially hazardous chemicals and require a lot of manpower and labor.  An electronic water conditioner such as ScaleBlaster can significantly reduce the need or amount of cooling tower biocide required to prevent limescale and corrosion.  Let’s examine how ScaleBlaster is an effective water conditioning solution and hard water treatment system for cooling towers.

First, it is very easy to install on the incoming water line.  A signal cable is wrapped around the pipe (it never comes into contact with the water).  This allows for a natural and gentle elevation of the PH of the recirculating water by increasing the cycle of concentration. The result? The water becomes much less corrosive, existing limescale is removed and algae and bacteria are controlled.  ScaleBlaster also works to ensure scale forming ions do not adhere to one another, thus preserving the integrity of pipes, tubes, heat transfer surfaces, walls, jets, etc.

Cooling tower chemistry will naturally result in algae, limescale buildup and other issues. If you are looking for a maintenance free, cost effective alternative to cooling tower biocide, ScaleBlaster can provide an excellent cooling tower water treatment for your industrial plant. An electronic water descaler will save you lots of time, labor, money and headaches in the long run. Contact ScaleBlaster today – we are here to help!

Combating the Need for Cooling Tower Biocide

An Alternative to Chemical Cooling Tower Biocide Systems

Hard water can be severely damaging to cooling towers and other industrial water system units. The limescale buildup is corrosive to pipes and is a breeding ground for algae and bacteria. The professionals here at ScaleBlaster have spent years developing a system to protect industrial water systems from the harmful effects of hard water and limescale deposits. Our revolutionary system is uniquely designed for industrial use and provides water treatment that does not require salt or other harsh chemicals. We’re confident our product can improve water quality and decrease corrosion in all industrial water systems.

A Comparison of Our Product and Traditional Biocide Methods

A biocide is defined as a chemical substance or microorganism designed to destroy or control a harmful organism using biological or chemical means. For example, a cooling tower biocide is designed to destroy the algae, bacteria, and fungi that can thrive in the water supply. These bacteria and other organisms can form a layer of bio-slime that acts as the foundation for limescale. The limescale buildup, in turn, reduces energy efficiency, increases the frequency of maintenance shutdowns, and increases water usage.

We’re proud to say that ScaleBlaster is highly effective at eliminating and preventing limescale without using the harsh chemicals present in traditional cooling tower biocide systems. Instead, our device uses an electric field with a complex waveform. This wave oscillates between several frequencies over a large range and disrupts the molecular structure of the elements that cause limescale. Our device cleans exiting buildup and prevents it from returning. We’ve designed our unit to specifically address the needs of industrial water systems.

Benefits of Installing an Alternative Water Treatment System

There are several advantages to choosing our product over a chemical cooling tower biocide. Because our method employs an electric field, it doesn’t add anything to the water supply. Our system eliminates the need to add salt or other hard chemicals to the water. The device also encourages increased cycles of concentration, which raises the pH balance of the water and renders it less corrosive to pipes and other plumbing elements. Raising the cycles of concentration also saves a large amount of water, reducing utility costs.

ScaleBlaster decreases the corrosive elements in the water and this greatly extends the operating life of equipment. We also designed it to be environmentally friendly. Our product doesn’t add chemical substances into the water supply and also prevents the water waste that is required in traditional treatments. It reduces the equipment’s energy usage. Limescale buildup in pipes drastically decreases energy efficiency; even a quarter inch of buildup can increase energy consumption by up to 40%. Preventing the limescale deposits from forming dramatically improves energy efficiency, which is another aspect of environmental responsibility.

Hiring Cooling Tower Treatment Companies—What You Need to Know

The cooling tower is a tower that’s mostly installed near factories in industries where a lot of water is required. The water that is heated due to industrial processes is sent via pipes in to the cooling tower so that it can come in to direct contact with air. As the name suggests, the main purpose of a cooling tower is to lower the temperature of the water. This is done through the basic concept of evaporation. As soon as the water comes in to contact with air, a small amount of water begins to evaporate, which causes the temperature of the water to drop slightly.

The water that flows through the pipes into the cooling tower often has a very high mineral content. Over the passage of time, the limestone, calcium and magnesium within the water is slowly deposited around the sides of the pipe it flows through. This reduces the maximum amount of space in the pipes, which significantly reduces the volume of water that flows through the pipes. In an industry or a factory where water usage is necessary, this can cause some serious issues. That’s why many factory owners hire cooling tower treatment companies in order to add chemicals in the water to remove those limestone deposits.

Challenges To Managing Cooling Tower Chemistry

With our long experience in working with professionals in the HVAC industry, we are keenly aware of the challenges in managing cooling tower chemistry. We also understand that the very nature of the systems, the use of heat to cause evaporation can create concentrations of both organic and inorganic contaminants that can create imbalances within the system in a very short period of time.

Contaminants in the system or the impurities that are in the water used in the towers are going to become more concentrated over time, and this will change over the cycling of the water through the system.

We also know and work with experts in working with cooling tower chemistry management to help to develop systems for a wide range of applications. This can include smaller towers to the very largest towers, and our ability to customize a system to suit your needs sets us apart from any other companies offering cooling tower water treatment solutions.

Knowing the System

To assist you in choosing the right system for your needs, we will first meet with your team to find out just what you need. We offer different options for our ScaleBlaster as well MineralPURE copper/silver ionizer, addressing both organic and inorganic contaminants that may be problematic in the system.

In most cooling towers, both issues will need to be addressed to provide optimal management. By managing both the organic and inorganic components it is possible to greatly reduce issues with corrosion, white rust buildup and even the accumulation of scales or organic sludge in the tanks, the tubes and in the system.

This will provide protection for every component of the cooling tower system. These include valves, pump components, pipes as well as the tower fill, spray headers and even the sump tank system.

The Challenging Combination

Keep in mind when considering treatment options and cooling tower chemistry that the presence of biofilm and organic materials in the tank can also increase the risk of scale development. The organic material itself can become an adhesive or highly accommodating surface for scale to develop, creating a type of synergistic effect that will quickly lower efficiency and decrease the effectiveness of the cooling system.

Talking to our team of experts in managing organic and inorganic contamination in the cooling tank is the first step in the process. By sharing the information and data you have, we can develop an effective treatment system that will effectively manage the cooling towers chemistry and help the system maintain maximum cooling potential.

Chemical Water Treatment for Cooling Towers—Is It the Right Choice?

Have you seen those giant towers that are installed outside factories and on top of large buildings? These are cooling towers that serve a very important purpose. Simply put, a cooling tower is a heat exchanger that brings water in to direct contact with air, thus causing the temperature of the water to drop. When air and water come in to direct contact, a very tiny percentage of the water is evaporated from the surface. Most of the water that is pumped in to the cooling tower has already been heated due to some industrial processes.

The water is sprayed through nozzles in to the cooling tower, so as to bring the maximum amount of water in contact with air. The excess flow of water through the thin pipes and nozzles can lead to some serious problems. Over the passage of time, the amount of water that flows through these pipes begins to decrease considerably.

Why Does This Happen?

In most cases, the water flowing through the pipes has a very high mineral content. As the water continues to flow through the pipes, it leaves behind small deposits of limestone, calcium and magnesium around the sides. This decreases the circumference of the pipe and significantly limits the amount of water that can flow the pipe. Water that has a very high mineral content is known as hard water. In industries and factories where the flow of water can have a serious impact on operations, hard water can reduce the amount of water that goes in to the cooling towers. That’s why many factories opt for chemical water treatment for cooling towers.

With ScaleBlaster, you don’t have anything to worry about. Rather than using water softeners and opting for chemical water treatment for cooling towers, the ScaleBlaster offers a maintenance-free solution. All you have to do is install our ScaleBlaster to the water supply, and you are good to go! We guarantee that limestone will no longer form in the pipes, and the amount of deposits that have already been made will also be significantly reduced.

Why Cooling Tower Limescale Removal Is Critical to Industrial Function

Cooling tower limescale removal is something that you should expect to encounter if you have an industrial or commercial company that makes use of a cooling tower. Some industries most frequently using cooling towers for business include the paper, chemical, and oil refining industries. Proper limescale removal and maintenance will ensure the longevity of your cooling tower and also prevent negative side effects. To achieve limescale removal, you have two basic options, chemical treatments or our eco-friendly solutions.

Why Limescale Removal Is Important

Cooling tower limescale removal is important because of the effects that limescale buildup within your cooling tower unit may cause; a decrease in efficiency and corrosion within your cooling tower. Over time, calcium-rich water sources cause calcium carbonate to accumulate on the sides of your piping and cooling tower. This is known as limescale buildup.

Limescale buildup can decrease the efficiency of your water-cooling tower by 70%. When your cooling tower is not operating efficiently, it can take a toll on other business operations, especially if you use the cooling tower for frequently used machines in your building. Cooling tower limescale removal is also important because limescale can cause corrosion. This corrosion eats away at pipes and the inside of your cooling tower, making leaks and other damages much more likely. Luckily, you can easily and affordably combat limescale buildup with our electronic descaling device, ScaleBlaster that is safe, cost-effective, low-maintenance, and environmentally friendly.

Options for Treatment

There are the two categorizations of treatments suggested for cooling tower limescale removal: chemical, and eco-friendly. Some common chemical treatments include the use of toxic chemicals, expensive salt-free conditions, or harmful water softeners. The reason some of these treatments are so toxic is because they encourage the release of chlorides into the environment. In addition to being harsh on the environment, these methods are high maintenance and very expensive to continue over the lifetime of your cooling tower.

A more eco-friendly method for cooling tower limescale removal is electronic descalers such as ScaleBlaster. Our electronic descaler works by sending electromagnetic waves through your water supply. These electromagnetic waves change the property of calcium molecules to prevent them from sticking to your pipes and appliances. Over the course of use, this also removes existing limescale from your water cooler and pipelines.

The electronic descalers we offer are not just better for the environment. They also offer other benefits such as cost efficiency and low maintenance. While the initial purchase price of electronic descalers for cooling tower limescale removal is greater than that of water softeners and chemicals, its cost over a lifetime is far less expensive. Electronic descalers are also low maintenance. You already must have routine inspection to your cooling tower unit twice yearly. Why should you add additional maintenance to put the chemicals and heavy bags of water softener into your system? Electronic descalers take all of the hassle out of your cooling tower limescale removal plan.
