Cooling Tower Water Treatment - 3 PDH
Cooling water systems remove heat generated from a variety of industrial processes. There are three basic types of cooling water systems: once-through, open recirculating, and closed recirculating cooling water systems. This publication describes water treatment requirements for the most common systems, once-through and open recirculating.
