Cooling towers play a key role in countless processes, from power generation and manufacturing, to data centers, and HVAC systems. With cooling towers playing such a crucial function for many facilities and buildings, monitoring and maintenance becomes critical. For building managers and owners, the key to ensuring the optimal operation of these cooling towers lies in the effective use of new technologies.
As a part of your water treatment program, your facility should utilize cutting-edge cooling tower monitoring and control technologies to maintain the highest water quality possible. All water treatment service programs should include equipment that reduces the burden of maintenance for your building or facility’s staff.
This includes tech to help with water quality testing, access to remote data and controls, remote reporting, alarms, and notifications, automated chemical dosing, drum level sensors, and automatic blowdown as an example.
Continuous Water Quality Testing
The foundation of any effective water treatment program begins with rigorous water quality testing. Traditional manual sampling and laboratory analyses are time-consuming and may lead to delayed responses to emerging issues.
Advanced cooling tower monitoring technologies incorporate automated sensors that continuously measure most water parameters such as pH, conductivity, turbidity, and microbial levels in real-time. This wealth of data allows for prompt detection of any deviations from optimal conditions, enabling timely corrective actions and minimizing potential risks to your cooling tower system.
Access to Remote Data and Controls
Modern cooling tower monitoring systems are equipped with internet capabilities, enabling remote access to critical data and controls. This means that building managers and operators can monitor system performance, access real-time data, and make adjustments from anywhere with an internet connection.
The convenience of remote access empowers building managers to promptly respond to and even make changes in operating conditions, enhancing the overall efficiency and reliability of the cooling tower system.
Remote Reporting, Alarms, and Notifications
Imagine a world where your cooling tower system could communicate with you in real-time. With advanced monitoring technologies, this is no longer a dream but a reality.
Smart controllers and sensors can be programmed to send alarms and notifications when specific parameters deviate from optimal ranges or when critical conditions arise. These automated alerts enable rapid response and preventive actions, minimizing downtime, and reducing the risk of costly equipment failures.
Automated Chemical Dosing
Maintaining the right chemical balance is crucial for preventing issues like scaling, corrosion, and microbial growth in cooling towers. Advanced monitoring technologies integrate automated chemical dosing systems that precisely regulate chemical levels based on real-time water quality data.
This automation not only ensures consistent treatment efficacy but also minimizes chemical waste and associated costs, making it a more sustainable approach to water treatment.
Drum Level Sensors and Automatic Blowdown
Accurate water level control is essential for cooling towers to operate efficiently. Drum level sensors facilitate precise water level measurement, while automatic blowdown systems ensure the controlled discharge of impurities, preventing the buildup of harmful substances that can affect tower performance. These technologies optimize water usage, reduce water wastage, and promote eco-friendly practices.
Smart Binder Reporting
This innovative cloud reporting and storage system streamlines the compliance process with DOH Legionella requirements.
The smart binder system uses a QR code affixed to your cooling tower to provide a cloud location to upload essential water management information, such as the water management plan, recent Legionella testing results, the last DOH inspection, annual certification details, summertime hypohalogenation records, and corrective action paperwork if any.
This eliminates the need for old fashioned reporting and can get the DOH in and out of your building on inspection day in 15 minutes, while also saving your building’s responsible person hours of data logging.
