In industry and the food industry, the problem of scale is recurrent. It gradually deposits in hot water tanks and cooling circuits, reducing the heat exchange between the heating and cooling water and increasing energy costs by up to 30%, sometimes even 60%.
Open or closed circuit cooling tower, evaporative condenser, water treatment as well as the cleanliness of the installation and its maintenance are essential for their good functioning. The risks of corrosion, scaling, deposits and bacteriological development are real and depend on a healthy circulation water. Such risks will affect heat transfer efficiency and operating costs.
The accumulation of scale eventually reduces the efficiency of the appliance and causes an increase in cooling or condensation temperature, but also in electrical power and therefore additional costs. In fact, scaling does not only depend on the concentration of calcium or magnesium carbonate in the water. Other factors such as temperature, turbulence, flow velocity, water pH and water composition can also contribute to the formation of deposits or slow them down.
The advantages of the ®ACQUAPROCESS process:
Energy savings | Water savings | Elimination of corrosion | Improved bacteriological control | Lower maintenance costs | Elimination of environmental risks
