Conservation of Energy Through The Use of a Predictive Performance Simulator of Operating Cooling Water Systems
MetadataShow full item record
Conservation of energy is an important consideration in the operation of cooling water systems. Conserving energy by operating at the most effective cycles of concentration and by keeping heat exchangers clean is contingent upon having the optimum chemical treatment program for the prevention of corrosion, scale and deposit accumulations. Calgon has made available a computerized performance simulator of operating cooling water systems which reliably predicts system corrosion rates, percent scale inhibition and deposit control with a variety of cooling water treatment programs at the specific system operating conditions. The operation of this program is described and case studies are presented which show how it has been used to maximize system efficiency and reduce energy consumption, while protecting the system against corrosion, scale formation and deposit accumulations.
