Sound cooling tower maintenance practices are essential to ensure system health and efficient energy consumption. Many facilities concentrate on ensuring chiller efficiency, neglecting their cooling towers. The reason for this is that chillers use a lot more energy than cooling towers – up to five times more energy.
What most facility managers fail to realize is that chillers are more efficient when supplied with cool condensing water – which is supplied by the cooling tower. According to research, supplying condensing water that is a degree cooler increases chiller efficiency by 2-3%. When proper maintenance practices are not followed, condensing water temperatures rise, causing an increase in energy consumption.
Below are ten tips that can be implemented to keep your cooling tower working at optimal efficiency:
Your cooling tower's maintenance needs will be dictated by the immediate surroundings of the tower as well as the status of the circulating water. With proper maintenance habits, you can reduce chiller system energy consumption and extend the lifespan of your equipment. For more information, contact companies like Breezewater Pty Ltd.Share
