Cooling Tower Monitoring helps operators ensure that make-up water and chemical costs are optimised while minimising scaling and fouling of cooling water exchangers facility-wide.
At its most basic level, an induction furnace cooling system includes pumps circulating water through the furnace to absorb heat and on to a cooling tower where that heat is released.
The cool water is collected in the tank at the base of the cooling tower and then it is recycled.
