1. Cooling Tower Basics: Piping and Controls

Properly engineered condenser, chiller and cooling tower piping and controls will improve heat transfer and avoid problems such as air slugging and pumps losing prime.

2. Boosting Heat Exchanger Performance with Effective Tube Cleaning

Online, automatic cleaning systems help exchangers and condensers maintain proper heat transfer rate.

3. Water Treatment for Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Q&A

Monitoring water treatment performance is an essential part of many industrial equipment maintenance plans. Though the water treatment chemicals are introduced via the water, it is important to remember that the goal is not to treat the water. Water expert Paul Puckorius follows up on his December 2015 webinar. 

4. Understanding FM Approval for Cooling Towers

A cooling tower with FM Approval provides a measure of assurance to plant owners — and may be required by your insurer or other authorities having jurisdiction.

5. How to Size Chillers for Condensing Applications

Selecting the proper cooling capacity for chillers used for condensing applications helps ensure high performance and process reliability.

6. Valves Improve Process Cooling

Proper valve selection helps improve winemaking fermentation.

7. Evaporatively Cooling Industrial Process Applications

A closed-loop, evaporative cooling system can achieve the coldest process outlet temperature in the harshest conditions. 

8. Using Chlorine Dioxide for Effective Water Treatment
