Tech Session

Design and Operation of Cooling Towers in Variable Flow
Historically, cooling towers were considered to be constant flow devices. As HVAC system designers continue to search for potential energy savings, varying flow to cooling towers has become more common. This requires careful attention to design and operation of the towers to prevent problems. This goal of this session is to provide insight into proper design and operation of cooling towers in variable flow applications.

Lunch and Main Session

Advances in Non-Chemical Water Treatment:  Opportunities for Cooling System Efficiency and Cost Containment
Water cooled systems are often “out-of-sight, out of mind” and water treatment is no different. But consider that a 1000 Ton tower will consume in excess of 15 million gallons of water per year and discharge nearly five million gallons to the sanitary system. Cooling systems are ripe for efficiency improvements especially when this efficiency is dramatically impacted by the quality of water treatment – which usually involves significant chemical consumption, cost, handling, and chemical discharge. This session will discuss the technical aspects of alternative, LEED-friendly water treatment methods with a focus on recent advances in pulsed power (electro-dynamic) systems. The session will highlight system operation, design, and operating principles.
