Cooling Tower – Full Flow Filters

Cooling Tower – Full Flow Filters

Skid-180-FilterIn full flow cooling tower filtration, a filter is installed after the cooling tower on the discharge side of the pump. Forsta cooling tower filters are sized to handle a system’s design flow rate such that the cooling tower filter will continuously clean the entire system flow.

Benefits

There are numerous benefits to circulating the clean water that results from effective cooling tower water filtration. Cooling tower companies cite the advantages of particulate removal as including; reduced energy consumption, improved chemical performance, lower maintenance cost, improved productivity with less downtime, and control of biological growth.

Full Flow versus Side Stream Filters

In order to achieve full flow cooling tower filtration, it follows that a system flow rate of 500 gpm requires a filter sized to treat 500 gpm. Full flow cooling tower filtration drastically reduces heat exchanger and chiller upkeep and improves the overall operation of equipment. Full flow cooling tower filtration is preferable to cooling tower side stream filtration as a method of cleaning, but can become cost prohibitive for systems with high flow rates.

Screen sizes

Forsta engineers assess the particulate concentration of cooling tower water and equip cooling tower filters with screens appropriate to that level. A typical cooling tower filter will have a screen ranging from 50-300 microns (variation based on water quality data – coarser or finer screens may be specified where appropriate.)
