A local insulation manufacturer contacted IFM to help filter their existing cooling tower closed loop system. The facility’s cooling tower loop had debris in it that was plugging the instruments on the process lines. A chemical treatment was implemented to assist with cooling tower operations and the scale and pipe material began letting loose and causing the issues.
To prevent continued clogging, IFM proposed a side-stream filtration unit to filter out the large debris to particles as small as 5 microns as it is broken down and loosened from the existing piping walls. This unit was designed for 3-4 hour complete loop filtration.
