This book discusses the economics of water use in cooling towers, and presents a technical but easy to understand review of an advanced technology that permits significant gains in water conservation. The three goals of water treatment - scale control, corrosion control, and control of biological fouling - are examined to show how all three can easily and effectively be handled with a technology that allows a system to operate with zero forced bleed to the sewer. The book details the application and economics of this technology in specific types of cooling tower settings. Specific topics include water conservation, pollution control requirements, corrosion prevention, management of toxic polluting biocides, and comparison of alternative technologies.
