What Is Remote Monitoring Of Cooling Towers?
Remote monitoring of cooling towers refers to a wireless system that monitors and provides feedback of a cooling tower and other water systems. Remote monitoring enables companies to detect concerns related to the contamination of water, particularly as it relates to excessively high or low levels of solids, inhibitor chemicals, or biocide chemicals.
Typically, the system is displayed through a web portal that allows the user to view past and current information related to the functionality of treatment and cleanliness of the cooling tower and water systems. This is particularly useful in diagnosing issues and understanding compliance. This service can also be personalized to the individual user based on their own needs and preferences.
What Is Involved With Remote Monitoring Of Cooling Towers?
Remote monitoring of cooling towers tests for performance indicators. If there is a drop off in performance, the remote monitoring picks it up and allows the owner to take corrective action. Several indicators remote monitoring may test for include:
- Improper bleed off
- Biofilm growth
- Large temperature swings
- Water flow
- Biocide Feed
- Corrosion Inhibitor feed
Remote monitoring also stores data to access at a later time. From a compliance perspective, this allows companies to prove that they are in compliance with all daily requirements within the regulations. It also improves business operations as employees are able to focus on areas other than testing, along with protecting the company from potential lawsuits due to contaminated water.
The Importance Of Remote Monitoring Of Cooling Towers
Manually measuring legionella levels, water flow, etc. and inspecting the cooling tower and water system on a regular basis is time-consuming. Also, manual measuring not conducted by a professional is often unreliable and inaccurate. Remote monitoring of cooling towers takes care of all of the daily monitoring to prove the system works properly and that the water should not be contaminated with legionella or other harmful pathogens. If issues arise, the user can take action promptly to prevent a more serious problem from developing that could significantly harm the business.
