1 – Reduced energy consumption and reducing environmental impact.
The EnviroTower™ system eliminates and removes scaling and fouling in the cooling system. Generally, regardless of the chemical treatment regime, experience shows that some scaling still occurs in the system which reduces system efficiency and drives up energy consumption. EnviroTower technology will reduce scale and biological fouling below their current levels regardless of the current level. Studies have shown that the smallest amounts of fouling, even as little as 2/1000TH of an inch (0.05mm) can dramatically affect the energy efficiency of the cooling system, 1/8” (or about 3mm) of scale will already cost over 25% more in energy! We have proven reduction of energy consumption from those systems employing cooling towers anywhere from 5% to 30% depending on the system and the effectiveness and quality of their current water treatment. A typical 180 total tons of cooling tower capacity, this will amount to energy savings of $8,575 per year or more.
Because scale and fouling are eliminated, the system will reduce the annual labour cost associated with cleaning the chiller tubes and tower. The possibility of having to acid wash the condensers or towers has also been eliminated along with the environmental hazards associated with such practices and the extra charges that the customer would incur as a result of such a requirement.
