Cooling water system is common in industry factory. It main function is to rejection heat to avoid equipment overheating. Whether cooling tower operates efficiency or not is key factors affecting production line capacity. Poor cooling water management, poor maintain for cooling tower and cooling system fitting pipe are influences for cooling tower efficiency.
Cooling water management
Poor cooling water management would cause fouling, corrosion and water scale deposited on tube. These situations would cause lower heat exchange efficiency.

Cooling tower cleaning
Many factories always ignore maintenance of cooling tower result higher power consumption and water waste volume. These would decrease the cooling tower efficiency. When cooling tower operates efficiency decrease would suggest check these item below:
- Confirm the air inlet and outlet of cooling tower is clear.
- Check fill stay cleaning or not and fill set correct or not.
- Check nozzle spray water spray evenly, nozzle has fouling blocking or not.
- Check cooling tower have fouling, corrosion and water scale problem or not.
- Check cooling tower water flow enough or not.

Cooling tower piping essentials
Poor fitting piping would cause multi-split cooling tower water level different. This condition would cause those which with lower water level would easy filled with water. To solve this condition must be decrease other cooling tower water level to avoid the situation appear. When cooling tower water level couldn’t arrive original design level would decrease the cooling tower operate efficiency and cause damage to pump.
Fitting piping essential as follow:
- Basic design principle is downward, avoid high up design and must lower than sink’s fitting piping.
- Pump’s set should lower than sink water level
- Multi-split cooling tower design is use the common pipe, so each cooling tower water level must at the same level.
This article just provides basic items to check and improve cooling tower operates efficiency. More details still have field inspection would get.
