Cooling tower and chiller efficiencies are typically based on the
unit design and given standardized rating values, however this is always
based upon when the chiller is operating completely clean of lime scale.
Optimizing chiller efficiency is important, because often the chiller is
the largest energy consumer in a building. Open systems typically
are used for condenser-water systems connected to the chiller condenser.
Condenser systems that use sources such as cooling towers require
continuous chemical water treatment. ECMI can help managers by providing
a chemical-free treatment solution, and also will work with their
vendors familiar with local water supplies and who provide full-service
maintenance for their facility water systems.
One of the best steps to improve chiller efficiency
is to have a clean system, free of lime scale and corrosion. Even
a small amount of scale greatly decreases chiller efficiency!
ECMI helps improve
chiller efficiency by implementing Hydropath equipment on
chiller and cooling tower systems. Hydropath units
will improve chiller heat exchange efficiency by eliminating efficiency loss due to limescale build-up
in the system, which can occur quite quickly even in treated systems. Heat exchanger efficiency in chillers
and condensers can be
drastically reduced by limescale build-up, and be very costly in the
long-run when you look at how much increased energy has to be put in to
get the same amount of cooling capacity out.
Will remove limescale from inside the chiller and piping
Continues to keep scale from forming within the entire system.
Keeps chillers operating at peek efficiency.
Reduces or eliminates costs for chemicals and scheduled
chiller system cleaning.
NOT A MAGNET!
