Cooling Tower Efficiency by Conserving Water and Energy

HydroFLOW can save 50% of annual water use in cooling towers.  The frequency uses the circulating water to carry the signal throughout the system and causes scale to form in the water, which can not attach to pipes and equipment.

HydroFLOW electronic water conditioning safely allows cycles of concentration to more than double, while preventing scale from forming on surfaces. Blowdown events are less frequent and cost savings of 50% or more are sustained, with less chemistry and maintenance. In most cases HydroFLOW eliminates the need for a water softener.

HydroFLOW controls bacteria and algae in cooling towers and reduces the volume of chemicals required for scale reduction, biocides, and corrosion inhibitors.  

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

Internet Enabled Sensors for Monitoring Performance

Hydrotech installs (Internet of Things) IoT-enabled sensors for continuously collecting operating data that is sent securely to a cloud-based network. Sensors have an important role for measuring actual water use, chemistry levels, temperature, and a range of key metrics that allow optimized performance. Internet connected sensors provide operating data securely in real-time on mobile devices and any computer with an internet connection.

The data available in the cloud is continuously analyzed along with operating data from other cooling tower locations so that analysis is performed for identifying trends that allow greater efficiencies to be achieved at each facility.

Our approach is to deliver value that is proven each day, which extends beyond cost savings, as we help our clients develop better approaches to saving cost and extending the useful life of assets.

HydroTech Solutions relies on data to continuously improve performance, and we have developed an app for recording key operating data so that our clients can monitor operating efficiencies daily. Performance metrics can be viewed online or from the app. Our approach is to deliver value that is proven each day, which extends beyond cost savings, as we help our clients develop better approaches to saving cost and extending the useful life of assets.
