Why do I have to chemically deal with my cooling tower? The primary purpose of a cooling tower is to reuse water. When the water is reused, pure water is evaporated. As the water evaporates off as pure H20, impurities and/or corrosion levels increase in the recirculating water. Cooling Water Chemicals are then used to maximize the number of times the water could also be reused earlier than dumping.
What cooling tower chemical do I use? The kind of cooling tower chemical used depends on your make up water pH and calcium levels. Realizing these two factors will determine the cooling tower chemical blend required to reduce corrosion and/or scaling.
