For the past several decades, industrial and non-industrial users and operators of open cooling water systems have realized a steady stream of developments and innovations in the automation and control of cooling water system chemistry.  This paper discusses the performance of a new innovation for the measurement and control of polymeric dispersants used in cooling water systems and the advance moves in the industry towards the inevitable desire and efficiency of the direct measurement of functional treatment chemistries for the control and optimization of scale, deposit and corrosion because of its implicit purity, simplicity and logic.
