Silica concentration frequently limits the cycles of concentration in cooling tower-circulating water. This is particularly true in areas like the Western and Southwestern states and Mexico where the feed raw water has high silica.  HERO patented process addresses the treatment of high silica feed water and hence treatment of cooling tower blowdown enabling the recovery and reuse of the blowdown water.  This helps in increasing the cycles of concentration of the cooling tower and also reduces the size of the disposal pond or a brine concentrator in case of a zero discharge permit plant.
