This paper describes the results from four years of operating experience with pulsed-power (a non-chemical water treatment system) on a 600-ton Pittsburgh cooling tower. The tower was commissioned in May 1998 and has been operated exclusively with pulsed-power units as the only water treatment. Biological data, corrosion data, water chemistries, and thermal efficiencies will be reported.
