ELECTROCELL’s Water/Energy Savings Approach
To provide a healthy, clean condenser/evaporative system is our primary goal. A clean heat exchanger will save water and energy, as well as extend equipment life cycles.
ELECTROCELL concentrates on total suspended solids removal and control of total dissolved solids
Our technology improves thermal transfer in the condenser and evaporative heat exchangers. This will utilize each chiller to its optimal efficiency thereby saving energy. In turn, the cooling towers are a slave to the chiller heat load and abilities to transfer temperature through their exchangers. This is where water savings are achieved.
By removing suspended solids and controlling dissolved solids ELECTROCELL has been successful in reducing large percentages of make-up water to the cooling towers and energy needed to operate chillers. Unlike most side-stream filters ELECTROCELL’s system uses no media and requires no backwash or continuous maintenance.
ELECTROCELL’s philosophy is to concentrate on evaporation rates rather than trying to extend bleed cycles. Make-up water to your cooling towers is divided into evaporation (75%) and bleed (25%). Bleed cycles are a necessary evil to rid the system of dissolved minerals (scale). Pushing or extending bleed cycles is risky business and will cost energy in the long run. Remember, bleed makes up only 25% of a towers usage in most cases.
ELECTROCELL removes 95% of suspended solids down to one micron, which greatly increases the condenser water’s thermal transfer rate, and also manages dissolved solids that may produce fouling (scale). ELECTROCELL monitors chillers approach temperatures which will verify our system’s effectiveness in keeping exchanger tubes clean. ELECTROCELL monitors and logs
monthly make-up and bleed usages.
ELECTROCELL concentrates on evaporation rate needed – 75% of your system’s usage.
ELECTROCELL’s water savings have never been the result of increased bleed cycles Our success is in direct proportion to the improvement in equipment efficiencies.
