Traditionally, water treatment suppliers have not proactively disclosed the ingredients in their cooling water chemical products. However, certain cooling water problems are solved most effectively when the supplier openly discloses the chemical formulation and works with the end-user to customize a chemical treatment product specific for that application. This report provides the technical background, and describes a methodology, for the end-user to apply chemical customization techniques. This approach includes: defining the problem, identifying key process conditions, assessing water quality and specifying the types, quantities, and costs of the required chemical ingredients. Case histories are also presented.
