If you are looking to invest in a cooling tower filtration system for your business, here are the six key features it should have.
Proper Measurements and Sizing –
A cooling water filtration system must be designed to provide suspended solids filtration by utilizing natural quartz silica sands down to a nominal 0.5 micron.
Through proper sizing, a cooling water filtration system can remove at least 50% (by count) of the 0.5 micron particles, and at least 80% (by count) of the 2 microns and larger particles, typically found in a condenser water system, within 30 days of start-up. Any filter installed should be sized based on a minimum side stream flow range of 3% of the cooling system circulation rate for optimum efficiency.
Filter piping manifolds should include a factory-installed, manual operated balancing valve on the filter outlet.
A filter outlet should be equipped with a factory-installed check valve to prevent backflow through the filter system.
The filter should be equipped with a factory-installed pump strainer to prevent suspended solids and debris from damaging the pump internals
The filter should be equipped with a factory-installed 316 stainless steel “V” notched lower distributor.
Filter manufacturers should have OSHA Certified Trained Service Technicians available for any service needs.
Properly treating water in a cooling system results in many benefits, including reduced energy use (stemming from greater efficiency in pumping and heat exchange), improved chemical performance, lower maintenance costs, and enhanced productivity. At Diamond Water Systems our individually engineered filtration systems work to reduce the volume of particles that collect in cooling systems. They are designed to limit microbiological growth, save energy, lengthen equipment life, and reduce maintenance through high-efficiency filtration, all without making you pay for unnecessary components.
Whether 8 GPM or 4,000 GPM, Diamond Water Systems has a solution for your filtration needs.
