Cooling towers are an essential component of many industrial processes, helping to regulate the temperature of equipment and materials. However, they can also be prone to issues such as clogging, scaling, and corrosion, which can impede their performance and lead to costly downtime. That’s why many companies are turning to Vari-Flow valves and screens as a solution.
Vari-Flow screens and valves are designed to improve the efficiency of water distribution in cooling towers. Traditional systems rely on fixed spray nozzles that distribute water evenly across the fill material. However, this method can be inefficient as some areas may receive more water than others, leading to dry spots or flooding. Vari-flow valves and screens, on the other hand, allow for adjustable water distribution, which ensures that every part of the fill material receives the correct amount of water. This results in more effective cooling and reduces the risk of scaling and corrosion.
Clogging is a common issue with traditional cooling tower systems, which can lead to reduced water flow and increased maintenance costs. Vari-Flow valves and screens can help to reduce clogging by filtering out debris and sediment before it reaches the fill material. This reduces the risk of blockages and ensures that the cooling tower operates efficiently, reducing the need for maintenance and repairs.
Scaling and corrosion are also common issues in cooling towers, which can damage the fill material and other components over time. Cooling tower screens help to reduce the risk of scaling and corrosion by regulating water flow and ensuring that the water is distributed evenly across the fill material. This results in less wear and tear on the components of the cooling tower, increasing their lifespan and reducing the need for replacements.
Cooling towers can be energy-intensive, with pumps and fans consuming significant amounts of energy. These valves and screens can help to improve the energy efficiency of cooling towers by reducing the need for excess water and regulating the flow of water through the tower. This results in lower energy consumption and reduced operating costs, making Vari-Flow valves and screens a cost-effective solution for cooling towers.
In order to provide facilities across a variety of industries with the ability to mitigate repairs, maintenance, and costly downtime, CTVS/Atlas-SSI has designed high-performing cooling tower valves and screens. These Vari-Flow products can easily replace existing components, and immediately provide the optimized performance that your cooling towers need.
