As industrial water treatment service professionals, we often hear the term “That’s how we always done it.” However, when it comes to treating the process water in a cooling tower, seasons change, water sources change, piping changes, loads change and chemistry changes. So why would anyone assume that the same setpoints that their cooling tower water treatment controls operated on years (or even months) ago would be exactly the same today? The way to be sure that a condenser water system is operating at peak efficiency and is balanced between reusing water as much as possible while simultaneously preventing scaling conditions from occurring cooling plant operators and water treatment service people to be mindful of two critical parameters: the Langelier Saturation Index (LSI) and Cycles of Concentration.

One of the most common problems that we see in water treatment when we survey a new customer’s facility is improper chemical feed location. Our water treatment professionals evaluate dozens of chemical feed stations in many different types of facilities every month, and we are always concerned when we see the same type of problem over and over again. Water treatment chemicals being fed in the incorrect location is one of those problems. This issue is even more peculiar because many times we will find that the actual water treatment chemical program and methodology is very appropriate for the system being treated, however, because of how that program is being fed into the system, the results are less than desirable.
