Cooling towers across the country are getting
fouled and clogged with debris like cottonwood seeds, leaves,
pollen, paper debris, industrial waste, nesting birds, construction
debris and insects. Whether the system is being used for
industrial process or environmental air handling, thousands of
dollars and hours are being wasted on repair downtime and
maintenance. Closed loop systems mix air and water, which allows
contaminants to transfer to the inline filtration system. As debris
is continuously drawn into the air intake of cooling towers,
fouling the cooling water and increasing the need for chemicals to
clean up sludge build-up, bacteria proliferation and bio-film on
internal surfaces which lead to corrosion of the basin walls.
Debris insulates the coils, causing heat build-up, higher discharge
pressure and amp draws. Reduced air flow causes automatic
shut-downs, continuous strainer and basin cleaning coils, heat
build-up, higher discharge pressure and amp draws. Reduced
air flow causes equipment to run for longer cycle times, at reduced
capacity, decreased life expectancy, increased filter changes and
escalating power costs.
Proper air filtration will prevent debris from impacting
equipment performance. Permatron air filtration products
offer you cost effective solutions.
