Design and Applications of Cooling Water Treatment Programs

Cooling water systems play an important role in keeping industrial plants running continuously and at full capacity. Most cooling systems consume large amount of waters, which make this system an excellent target for water conservation. As a consequence, the use of poor-quality water, the need for increasing cycles of concentrations, and the need to implement water reuse as a culture to conserve water have called for improvements on water treatment programs that are able to perform under these more stressful conditions.
