Cooling systems play an increasingly important role in the management of internal workplace environments. In this guide the experts at Water Treatment Services compare two of the most common types of cooling system, adiabatic cooling systems and open evaporative systems. The guide looks at how each one operates and the important differences between the two including the risks associated with legionella, how energy efficient they are, how much water they use, water treatment considerations and annual running costs.
Cooling towers and evaporative cooling systems are used extensively in many industrial, process and commercial applications where there is a need to remove excess heat from liquids, fluids, process materials and indoor environments.
Typical settings for cooling towers and evaporative water systems will include power stations, manufacturing plants, large computer data centres, office buildings, hospitals, hotels etc.
