Checking for Leaks in Cooling Tower Valves: Controlling Water Flow with Vari-Flow Valves

Cooling towers play a crucial role in numerous industrial processes by controlling the temperature of equipment and materials. However, they often face challenges like blockages, scaling, and corrosion, which can disrupt their functionality and result in expensive downtime. To address these issues, many companies are turning to Vari-Flow valves and screens as a dependable solution.

Enhancing Cooling Tower Water Distribution

Traditionally, cooling systems relied on fixed spray nozzles to evenly disperse water across the cooling tower fill material. Unfortunately, this method could be inefficient, leading to uneven water distribution, dry spots, or flooding. In contrast, Vari-Flow valves and screens introduce adjustable water distribution, ensuring that each part of the fill material receives the appropriate amount of water. This significantly enhances the cooling process, reducing the risk of scaling and corrosion.

Cost-Effective Cooling Tower Maintenance

Clogging is a prevalent problem in traditional cooling tower systems, resulting in reduced water flow and heightened maintenance costs. Vari-Flow valves and screens effectively combat clogging by screening out debris and sediment before it can reach the fill material. This minimizes the risk of blockages, ensuring the cooling tower operates smoothly and diminishing the need for frequent maintenance and repairs.

Enhanced Energy Efficiency in Cooling Towers

Cooling towers often consume substantial energy, with pumps and fans being significant contributors. Cooling tower valves contribute to improved energy efficiency by minimizing water wastage and controlling water flow through the tower. This results in lower energy consumption and reduced operational costs, making Vari-Flow valves and screens a cost-effective choice for optimizing cooling tower performance.

To empower facilities across diverse industries in minimizing repair, maintenance, and costly downtime, CTVS/Atlas-SSI has engineered top-performing cooling tower valves and screens. These Vari-Flow products seamlessly replace existing components, instantly delivering the optimized performance that your cooling towers require.
