Cooling water is a critical commodity at virtually all heavy industrial plants. Many heat exchangers rely either directly or indirectly on cooling from open recirculating systems. Scaling, microbiological fouling and corrosion in these cooling systems can cause serious problems and may even influence plant production. Even more importantly, some failures may jeopardize employee safety. Protection of valuable plant assets through proper cooling water chemical treatment is critical for maintaining plant reliability and availability.
This webinar examines advancements and a breakthrough innovation in cooling systems called FlexPro® - Sustainable, High Performance Cooling Water Treatment as an alternate to PO4/Zn based programs.
