Cooling towers are an effective and popular heat rejection technology used in almost all industries. The recirculating water within the cooling tower absorbs airborne particulates on a continuous basis, contributing to the formation of deposits (scale, fouling and biofilms). These deposits lead to a reduction in heat transfer efficiencies and increased operating and maintenance costs.
