Maintaining high water quality within a cooling tower is an operator's biggest struggle in keeping an efficient, healthy tower. Conventional water maintenance methods include chemicals and regular blowdowns. Ozone technology however, is the fastest growing challenger to conventional treatment. Ozone, the most powerful commercial oxidizer available, has the ability to disinfect tower water, reduce scale, and significantly decrease the amount of blowdown water. From midsize corporate office buildings to NASA's Kennedy Space Center, operators are finding that ozone technology has the ability to reduce costs substantially over chemical treatment.
