Sidestream filtration, as the name suggests, refers to the partial filtering of liquid in a system. In cooling water systems, sidestream filtration is generally sized on 5-10% of the total cooling tower water flow rate.
Side stream filtration can benefit your cooling system through:
Partial filtration of the cooling system’s flow significantly improves water quality.
Reduced rates of corrosion and other treatment concerns optimises system performance.
Better efficacy, longer lifespan.
Side-stream filtration allows cooling systems to provide longer periods of nonstop operation before they are taken offline for required maintenance.
Fouling and scaling can reduce the rate of heat exchange. Since side stream filtration reduces fouling and scaling, the cooling system now requires less effort to achieve the required cooling.
A side stream filtration can remove the suspended particles, minimising the need for chemical treatment, such as biocides and dispersants.
Masterflow Solutions has developed the most advanced sidestream filtration for cooling towers on the market. This package is compact in design and provides an effective filtration that surpasses the traditional methods used in the past.
