Many facilities use cooling water to help keep equipment such as cooling towers, chillers and heat exchangers running smoothly. But this water can pick up particles that can harm machinery. In order to prevent this problem, it will be important to have a reliable filtration system.
Critical Considerations to Filter Cooling Water
When machinery becomes contaminated, that can lead to significant downtime. Machinery will have to be shut down so they can be thoroughly cleaned, costing an operation not only a great deal of time, but a great deal of money as well.
But it’s not enough to just know you need a good filtration system. Another vital consideration is what type of filter to choose? Most of the time, a sand filter is the most effective for this type of application.
There are a few other options as well, however. For example, a screen filter is sometimes used to remove both inorganic and organic particles. Many screen filter systems feature automatic cleaning capabilities. Sand separators are mainly used to remove inorganic particles. These also feature automatic cleaning in many instances.
Another option is to have a system involving cartridges in bags. These do an excellent job of removing both types of particles. The filter elements will typically need to be replaced manually.
