Improving production technologies to optimize production cycles, increase machinery efficiency, reduce ingredient waste and intermediate products, and increase the shelf life of the final product without compromising quality remain key objectives of the food and beverage industry.
Factory engineered, mounted, piped and wired for open cooling towers, Smart Shield can be used to protect evaporative cooling water applications. The solid-chemistry, water treatment system provides controlled release and monitored release.
For those involved in the process industries, three shows this fall offer a chance to see new and upgraded products firsthand, learn about emerging technologies and network with others in the industry.
A corrosion and scale control chemistry for cooling water, in a study at a large gas plant, reduced phosphorous content in the cooling tower discharge by more than 80 percent while achieving the targeted mild steel corrosion rates. As a result, the plant will meet pending phosphorous discharge regulations and avoid capital costs of approximately $5 million for a phosphorus removal system.
The presence of scale is common to a facility’s operations. It can cause a surge in energy consumption and have a significant impact on operational costs. This is why it is vital to properly maintain and protect your equipment.
Compare and understand the most common calcium carbonate scale prediction methods for cooling waters. Learn where and why some methods are inaccurate, and understand how an accurate prediction method can optimize a calcium carbonate scale-control program as well as provide a cost reduction in cooling water treatments.
A steel plant had no choice but to use river water for its cooling towers. Adding electrodeionization water treatment equipment made it possible.

Water is an expensive resource for industrial companies, and it can be especially so for those that rely on cooling towers as a part of the manufacturing process. Cooling towers use a large amount of water on a consistent basis and are subject to scaling and corrosion issues. When the equipment is not maintained properly, an even greater amount of water can be used — and sometimes wasted.
Is it time to reconsider testing for total bacteria and Legionella in cooling tower water? Two case histories demonstrate how current water-testing methods could be indicating that bacteria control is acceptable and under good control — when the opposite is true.
Microbiological testing, specifically for total bacteria and Legionella bacteria in cooling tower water systems, has been using a methodology that basically has not changed for many years. The recent Legionnaires’ disease outbreaks due to cooling tower water systems has prompted a closer look at the methodology to determine if there is a need to consider a change that would be more representative of the true microbiological levels in these systems.
The effects of scale can be debilitating to an industrial system. Goodway Technologies knows the importance of addressing it. The company will host a free webinar, “Scale: Why You Have It, What It Does and How to Descale Safely and Effectively,” Tuesday, June 26 at 2 p.m. (EST).
