Optimizing the cost performance of treatments in cooling systems requires the use of models that calculate the minimum effective dosage of scale and/or corrosion inhibitors and blends. This paper describes the theory, development, and applications of performance models to optimizing and comparing treatments in open recirculating cooling systems. The impact of blending inhibitors on dosage is described. Treatment and model limitations are also discussed.
