One of the most common questions asked concerning high efficiency cooling towers is “how do we know what is happening inside the fill section?” Quantum Technical Services has developed and patented a gamma scanning technical to address this question directly. Utilizing a gamma scan of the fill section, we calculate the bulk density of all material in the fill. This technology, applied over several scans on a tower over time, has proven to be the most informative and cost effective method to determine the effectiveness of chemical treatment and help guide treatment companies in their treatment strategies.
