According to my calculation, cooling tower water consumption contributes around 30~40% to the total water consumption in the plant. This value is getting bigger and bigger as cooling tower performance getting worst and worst.
This fact forces me to seek ways on how to reduce cooling tower water consumption while keeping cooling tower operates at its optimum performance.
Reducing cooling tower water consumption does not mean only to save water itself, but at the same time reducing cooling water chemicals and waste-water discharge from the cooling tower.
Knowing how to reduce cooling tower water consumption is very important in order to reduce cooling tower operating costs as overall. But, cooling water quality should never be neglected while doing this effort.
