Cooling Tower Water Treatment in Power Generation Applications
Power generation plants rely on cooling towers, which require ongoing maintenance to remain effective. Installing an electronic water descaler for cooling tower water treatment reduces the need for cooling tower biocide and other harmful chemicals which degrade the overall integrity of the structure and its systems.
The water hardness scale plays a large part because cooling towers are designed to allow the “pure” water to evaporate while impurities remain. The higher the water hardness scale, the more scale that is left behind. This eventually leads to corrosion and other major problems. You may find this water hardness chart and water hardness map helpful in determining the hardness of the water in your area.
ScaleBlaster is an electronic water descaler that effectively works as a cooling tower water treatment system by eliminating existing limescale and prevents new limescale from forming. ScaleBlaster sends electromagnetic waves through the water pipe which change the properties of calcium molecules, thus preventing them from sticking to the inside walls.
Here is how ScaleBlaster benefits power generation plants:
Cooling Tower Water Treatment
ScaleBlaster controls lime scale deposits on tower fill, sump tank, spray headers, valves, pumps and pipes.
Condensers & Chillers
ScaleBlaster controls lime scale deposits on heat exchange surfaces.
ScaleBlaster controls lime scale deposits on boiler fire tubes, condensation tank, pumps, pipes, and valves.
ScaleBlaster controls lime scale deposits on cooling surfaces.
Waste Water Treatment
ScaleBlaster controls lime scale deposits in tanks, pumps, pipes, valves and sensors.
Our industrial dealers can help you determine which ScaleBlaster model is best for you. They can also guide you in determining your calcium hardness level.
