in your system means that the heat exchange will not be efficient. It increases
energy requirements, even when the fouling thickness is only 150 micron (slightly
thicker than a human hair). When deposits form on condenser tube walls, they
increase fluid frictional resistance, accelerate corrosion and impair heat transfer.
has insulating properties that are 4 times greater than CaCO3 which results
in higher energy consumption.
Using clean filtered water in cooling systems is the best
way of preventing the formation of sediments and insulating layers which reduce
the efficiency of the heat exchanger and increase energy costs. Vortisand
is an excellent way of reducing not only energy costs but the costs associated
with cleaning and replacing the components used in the cooling process. With
its self cleaning backwash process Vortisand reduces the amount of downtime
required by your plant hence increasing capacity.
recent publication by the Cooling Tower Institute shows that biofilm has greater
insulating potential than mineral scale deposits (CTI, Paper No. TP239A).
If you are looking
to reduce costs, improve capacity with a short payback then choose Vortisand
