HydroFlow Scale and Bacteria Control, including Legionella in Cooling Systems

HydroFlow can save 50% or more of the water being used annually in the treatment of Cooling Tower equipment by reducing the volume of makeup water required and reduced blowdown events. HydroFlow water conditioning significantly increases concentration cycles by preventing hard scale formation and flocculating the soft scale. HydroFlow performance results in significant reduction of scale reducers, biocides, corrosion inhibitors, and the frequency of blowdowns.  HydroFlow saves cost of chemicals, labor and repairs, and costs associated with a water softener.

Due to HydroFlow’s ability to control bacteria and algae in addition to scale, Legionella bacteria are also destroyed.   

Energy Consumption of Chillers Reduced by 9.6%

There are three fresh water cooled chillers (900TR in total) and two heat pumps (200TR in total) providing chilled water and hot water to a high technology building. The energy efficiency of chillers and heat pumps was improved by 9.6%. Additional savings were realized as the ozonation system was replaced by Hydropath technology. The payback period was 20 months. 

Energy Efficiency of Chillers Improved by 16.0%

There are two fresh water cooled chillers generating 400TR cooling capacity to part of a commercial building. The condenser tubes are now free of mineral scale and biofilm. The resulting energy efficiency of chillers is improved by 16.0%. The investment is paid back in 20 months. 

Energy Efficiency of Chillers Improved by 9.7%

Four fresh water cooled chillers produce 1200TR cooling capacity to a high technology building. The condenser tubes are cleaned in one month and the resulting energy efficiency of chillers is improved by 9.7%. 

Energy Efficiency of Chillers Improved by 8.9%

Three fresh water cooled chillers (two with heat recovery) producing over 1000TR to a commercial facility. The condenser tubes are now free of mineral scale and biofilm. The resulting energy efficiency of chillers is improved by 8.9%. The investment is paid back in 13 months.
