The power of water flow is an important tool. However, it needs to be leveraged and controlled in order to create optimal results. This same concept, accelerated by our industrial needs, can wreak havoc on a cooling tower system. Cooling tower valves control the pace, acceleration, and proliferation of water and velocity through an ultimately important system for the operation of a variety of industrial applications.
However, traditional valves can allow additional turbulence. Balancing the water flow through the cooling tower system by leveraging advanced valve engineering can enhance performance. Let’s take a closer look at how Vari-Flow cooling tower valves control and balance water flow.
How Do Vari-Flow Cooling Tower Valves Balance Water Flow?
Valves can be designed with a superior internal guide system that supports the stem and disc throughout its’ full length of travel. This internal “tracking system’ provides the support necessary to allow the valve to be used for balancing water flow. Conventional distribution valves wear excessively due to the movement or “chatter” of the stem and disc as they encounter the turbulence of the water flow, requiring costly downtime for repairs or replacement. Highly engineered valves can be utilized to balance the water flow throughout your cooling, optimizing its performance.
Cooling tower valves can make all of the difference, not only for your facility’s performance but in mitigating the costly tasks of maintaining and repairing its infrastructure.
