New Filtration Technology Keeps Cooling Tower Water Clean

November 2008
Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Nov2008, Vol. 80 Issue 11, p9
The article illustrates specifications for the proper and more efficient design of filtration systems that keep cooling water clean. It is evident that cooling towers have its unique dirt conditions making it more reliable to integrate filtration systems in it. Filters maintain particle free water to assure cleanliness.
