Process cooling towers and heat exchangers often become filled with system impurities, which reduces efficiency and performance. This uses more energy and expensive maintenance is required to manually clean the heat exchangers.

LAKOS Separators can keep cooling tower basins clean and heat exchangers free from fouling, saving energy and reducing maintenance costs.

Stop scale, fouling, biological activity and corrosion

Solids in cooling tower water can clog channels and create areas of low thermal conductivity. Suspended solids reduce the heat transfer areas and decrease flow inside condenser tubes by accumulating on internal tube fins. For every .001″ increase in fouling, energy consumption increases by 11%. Put an end to clogging and fouling with heat transfer filtration solutions.

 Airborne debris and other suspended particles in cooling tower water negatively affect heat transfer efficiency through the creation of deposits, which result in scale, corrosion, fouling, and biological activity. This leads to reduction in heat transfer design efficiencies and an increase in system operating costs.

LAKOS Centrifugal Separators and Filtration Solutions help remove suspended particles from cooling water thus helping maintain design efficiencies and extending the life of cooling towers, heat exchangers, chillers, and evaporative condensers.
