Traveling Water Screens for Saltwater Applications

Saltwater infrastructure has a different set of demands when compared to traditional, dryland, freshwater facilities.  Because of this fact, the material, design, and engineering behind the equipment that you use becomes increasingly important.  Saltwater accelerates corrosion and creates other complications that traditional materials can’t withstand or mitigate.  This is why […]

Cooling Tower Valve Suppliers: Two Key Advantages of Vari-Flow Valves

Cooling towers are designed to remove heat from a building or facility through the process of spraying water down into the tower.  This process extracts waste heat by ejecting it into the atmosphere via evaporation.  Its ability to operate as intended comes down to a simple process, however, it can […]

What is Chattering in a Cooling Tower? Preventing Damage with the Right Cooling Tower Valve

Conventional distribution valves inside of a cooling tower tend to experience excessive wear from the water’s movement through the system. This process creates what’s known as “chattering.” Chattering occurs when the stem and disc in the valve move due to the water’s turbulence. The more consistently this happens, the sooner […]

Industrial Pump Protection: Keeping Your Cooling Towers Operational with Var-Flow Screens

There are two types of water screens, stationary and traveling. There are distinct advantages to traveling water screens that not only protect cooling tower systems but also prevent the need for regular maintenance and the resources and downtime that these tasks require.   The most common maintenance and damage issues that […]
