VCHEM-OX in Cooling Tower
Due to high temperatures and permanent scrubbing of nutrients, cooling towers shape a perfect environment in which microorganisms can thrive. Controlling and preventing the growth of microorganisms in a cooling tower system is extremely important for health reasons and required to keep the system running under optimal operating conditions. The presence of the microorganisms may cause the system to breakdown, decrease the efficiency of the heat transfer and hence need to be replaced more rapidly.
Microorganisms may cause serious problems in the system through which the cooling water circulates:
- Loss of heat transfer, due to the low thermal conductivity of the biofilm and inorganic deposition
- Increased corrosion rates, due to electrochemical cell formation in the biofilm and blocking of contact of any corrosion inhibitor with the metal
- Increased pumping energy required to circulate the cooling water in the presence of a biofilm which has a high friction factor
- The formation of Legionella species, which in turn may lead to an outbreak of Legion- naires’ disease, a frequently fatal form of pneumonia.
