Almost all process cooling systems involve water which over time accumulate dust, sand, pollen, algae, and pipe scale particles, originating from cooling towers and makeup water. In extreme cases particle buildup clogs entire systems, requiring shutdowns, expensive maintenance, repair, or replacement. A buildup of solids no thicker than a human hair inside piping can reduce heat transfer by up to 30%, drastically reducing efficiency and increasing energy consumption. Forsta Industrial and HVAC cooling tower filters keep water clean, protecting heat exchangers, chillers, condensers, spray nozzles and pumps while significantly reducing energy consumption.
Industrial Cooling Tower Filters
Industrial cooling towers use water to remove heat from a variety of sources such as machinery or heated process material. The principal use of large, industrial cooling towers is to remove the heat absorbed in the circulating cooling water systems used in power plants, petroleum refineries, food processing plants, and in other industrial facilities.
Forsta industrial cooling tower filters can be integrated at any point within a process cooling system. High pressure at the discharge of a main pump often provides an ideal environment and location for our industrial water filters.
Cooling tower filters provide full-flow or sidestream filtration. In cooling water applications single units meet flow rate needs ranging from 15 to 8,000 gpm. Where a higher flow rate is required, multiple units installed in parallel provide solutions for nearly limitless flow.
HVAC Cooling Tower Filters
An HVAC cooling tower expels heat from a chiller. Large buildings such as convention centers, hospitals, and universities will frequently use cooling towers as part of their heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning systems.
Forsta cooling tower filters have a compact design allowing for easy installation in existing pipelines. The automatic cleaning cycle of Forsta cooling tower filters eliminates the need for routine maintenance and contributes to overall system automation.
Forsta cooling tower filters reduce water use, improve energy efficiency and are made entirely from sustainable materials. Forsta Filters used in new construction or to improve old systems will help projects meet a variety of important environmental and sustainability goals, and where applicable earn LEED certification.
