Side Stream Filtration: The best way to stop airborne contaminates and waterborne deposits from reducing heat transfer efficiency and accelerated system corrosion.
According to cooling tower manufactures, side stream filtration is the best practice for maintaining a clean safe and efficient operation. With an operating capacity of 70 GPM per filter, the CT-70 is ideal for up to 800 ton towers. Because of the modular design, the filters can handle up to four times this size.
Modular Design has been used with cooling towers, boilers, air compressors, etc. for years. The reason is flexibility and redundancy.
Modularity allows for a system to be more accurately matched to the required load. If the requirements increase, additional modules can be added to meet the new load without replacing the entire system. Alternatively, if the load decreases, modules can be shut off individually to reduce excess product and can be restarted without system interruption.
One common misconception is having one large unit means less equipment to inspect and maintain. The reality is modular make maintenance more affordable and less invasive by working on a single unit without having to shut down the entire system. Smaller modules mean smaller components that are easier to work on and less costly to replace.
Many times, modularity takes less space and provides more flexibility for installation.
Modularity just makes sense.
