An optimal cooling system is mandatory to maximize the
production of a power plant.
System stresses are significantly reduced through effective
water treatment by controlling and limiting corrosion, scale, fouling and
microbiological contamination. Ensuring that the cooling water system maintains
the correct temperatures is also key.
Through such control, further advantages include:
- Increased overall efficiencies
- Limited loss of heat transfer
- Reduced maintenance costs
- Reduced power costs
- Equipment repair or replacement cost savings,
lending to a reduction in shutdowns
With cooling towers, slime grows rapidly in the system which can
block free water flow and become a hazard for water quality. The slime, which
often grows in condensers and on cooling surfaces of re-circulating systems, can
significantly reduce efficiency. Undesirable slime and biofouling in spray
ponds that supply such cooling systems and cool boilers may also cause severe
problems for the site or facility, including cooling efficiencies that can be
compromised due to flow and pressure restrictions.
Lonza engineered solutions for the dosing of chemicals are also
available to address specific needs.
