Cooling water is very important cooling media for every chemical processing plant. It is used in many cooling processes; machine cooling, heat recovery, reactor cooling, barometric condenser and other important cooling processes.
Understanding the core principles and practices of cooling water treatment is the key to having excellent skills and knowledge in operating and maintaining cooling system. Corrosion inhibition, cooling water quality, chemicals used for cooling water treatment and make up water pre-treatment processes are some of topics that needs to be mastered.
A book titled Cooling Water Treatment Principles and Practice by Colin Frayne is good reference book for every chemical engineer, utility engineer and cooling water treatment professional who want to master cooling water treatment field.
The book is an excellent resource that only focus on cooling water treatment principles and practice. Cooling Water Treatment Principles and Practice by Colin Frayne is highly recommended.
In the Chapter 7 and 8, the writer describes how to sell, buy and select cooling water treatment programs. This is practicable and I like this topic.
