Within industry, agri-food, scale is a recurrent problem. It builds up progressively in hot water reservoir, cooling systems, which pulls along a reduction of the thermic exchange between heating water and cooling water, and energy extra charges up to 30%, sometimes 60%.
Whether it is for a cooling tower or an evaporative condenser, the water treatment just like installation’s property and maintenance are essential for a proper functioning. Corrosion risks, scaling risks, sediment risks and bacteria growth risks are real, and depend on a clear water. Such risks will have an impact on hot water transfer’s efficiency, and on the functioning costs. A scale accumulation will end up reducing the device’s efficiency, and can provoke a rise of the cooling or condensing temperature, but also a rise of electric power and so a rise of costs. Indeed, scaling doesn’t only depend on calcium carbonate or magnesium concentration in the water. Other factors can stimulate or reduce sediments formation, such as the temperature, turbulences, the runoff speed, water pH or the composition of the water.
