Improving worker safety, employing environmentally responsible technologies and managing costs are key objectives in water treatment program selection for many industrial facilities.  Ultrasonic technology Is a non-chemical treatment approach that has been proven successful in meeting these objectives.  This paper will review this novel technology and provide an in-depth case study of a plant that implemented the ultrasonic technology.  Program benefits include the elimination of traditional chemical biocide feed, storage and handling, improved cooling tower cleanliness, reduced corrosion, and water saving of more than 2.7 million gallons of water per year.
