Cooling tower efficiency
Discover how you can improve your cooling towers efficiency and save money.
Did you know that cooling towers consume up to half the water used in large office buildings, shopping centres and other major commercial facilities?
Recent City West Water trials assessed the efficiency of cooling towers and examined ways to reduce water use while maintaining or improving cooling performance.
At one site, potential savings of up to 9.5 million litres of water were identified, which would translate into a saving of $17,000 per year.
The trials also found that savings could be made by minimising use of expensive water treatment chemicals. Cuts in water and chemical use can also be gained by repairing leaks and maximising water recycling.
Most of these benefits can be delivered through simple maintenance and operational changes that provide quick returns for customers, while ensuring no increased risk of Legionella infection.
