The Cooling Technology Institute (CTI) issued an industry-wide call for papers on technology developments related to wet cooling towers, air-cooled condensers, dry coolers, indirect cooling, hybrid systems and cooling water treatment.
Comparing four alternative approaches to industrial water makeup sources and methods helps identify best practices for industrial water reuse and reclamation.

As water resources become increasingly stressed by drought and intensifying demand from competing uses, industries that use significant quantities of water will face greater pressure to
adopt water-efficiency strategies that can decrease fresh-water withdrawals. One approach that facilities can adopt to reduce their draw from these supplies — thus reducing stress on drinking
water reserves — is to use alternative makeup water sources.
The cooling tower, which is certified by the Cooling Technology Institute (CTI), achieves the lowest measurable drift rate, down to 0.0005 percent of circulating water flow, so less water escapes the tower.
When selecting the pipes and valves to be included in a cooling system, it is important to understand the options available — and the possible outcomes associated with each selection. The selection process is often overlooked or, at least, not given proper attention by designers and contractors when putting together a cooling system.
Evoqua’s Vortisand water filtration system was selected to help a large automotive research laboratory that provides independent testing services for the transportation industry meet its cooling tower needs.
Cooling towers operate under extreme conditions and are frequently exposed to a variety of weather-related elements. As might be expected, a consistent and regularly scheduled maintenance regiment can make a significant impact on the life expectancy of the cooling tower’s mechanicals. Read More
The International Conference is a great opportunity to bring together people from Industry, Utilities and Academics and Research Centers involved in Air Cooling Process activities such as Research, Development and Operation.
