Dow posts infographic on industrial cooling tower water treatment
By Brianna Crandall, September 28, 2015—As the world becomes more and more water-scarce, the importance of efficient industrial cooling tower water recirculation has become key. Advanced water treatment technologies can help plants increase operating efficiency to reduce water use, comply with local regulations, minimize downtime, and save on costs.
A new infographic from Dow Water & Process Solutions shows how different technologies can help treat and remove scaling, bacteria, and solids to increase flow and reduce waste.
According to the infographic, global water demand in manufacturing use is expected to increase by 400% from 2000 to 2050, so "manufacturers are looking to advanced water treatment technology to help alleviate resource stress."
The infographic explains the cooling process and gives solutions to challenges industrial manufacturing plants, petroleum refineries, power plants and others face in the quest to operate efficiently. Challenges include corrosion, scaling, fouling, contamination, resistive fouling, etc. Solutions include using antiscalants, ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis, self-cleaning particle filtration, nanofiltration and more to treat the water.
The infographic is available on the Dow Water & Process Solutions Web site. The division innovates purification and separation technologies, setting industry standards for quality and reliability with a comprehensive portfolio of products.
