Nozzle clogging in the chiller unit? Structured water is the solution!

Nozzle troubleshooting

A chiller is essential to maintain the efficiency of the industrial plant. Industrial chillers lower the temperature of machinery, industrial spaces and process fluids by removing heat from the system and transferring it elsewhere. They are essential for temperature regulation in industrial processes. Chillers prevent thermal damage to equipment by ensuring that the machine components work at the right temperature and the entire process runs at the optimum level of performance.

Chillers and cooling towers are vulnerable to the effects of hard water. High levels of dissolved salts present in hard water cause scale build up due to evaporation and long term cycling of water in the system. Over a period of time, the sustained and repetitive buildup of scales insulates the heat exchanging surfaces, resulting in the loss of heat exchanging / rejection rate of the chiller system. 

Nozzle blockage is also a common problem encountered in chiller systems arising due to the deposition of scale in the fine orifice of nozzle. Nozzle blockage leads to loss of performance and efficiency of the chiller system. If the issue is not addressed soon, it can also lead to catastrophic failure of the system, resulting in expensive repair bills and unscheduled downtimes.  

A Sustainable Water Conditioner

Using chemicals to soften hard water is not a sustainable solution. There is a valid possibility of the chemicals shortening the life of equipment. A sustainable and eco-friendly water conditioning device such as a water structuring device, will condition the feed water by altering the chemistry of the particles that cause scaling. By conditioning water, the free ions are neutralised thereby reducing scaling and hard water deposits. It also solves the problem of corrosion that is commonly observed when hard water is used directly. Water conditioners are efficient and do not waste much water – a big advantage in industrial establishments. 

An easy solution to a Hard problem

Structured water offers a permanent solution to deal with hard water problems plaguing chiller systems / cooling towers. Structured water is soft, hence the problem of scale build-up on chillers / cooling towers is eliminated. The use of structured water eliminates the need for chemicals or time and cost intensive cleaning procedures. It also significantly reduces the energy costs and ensures that the plant operates at the maximum efficiency. 

A Cost Effective Solution

Crystal Blue’s water structuring devices are completely maintenance-free and do not require any cleaning or replacement parts. They are a fix it, forget it solution. It is a one-time investment, the benefits of which far outweigh the investment. With the adoption of a water structuring device in your chiller system / cooling tower, you can 

  •  Increase the efficiency of the plant and run it at peak performance
  •  Avoid scaling problems
  • Avoid nozzle blockage issue
  • Reduce operating costs
  • Reduce maintenance / repair costs
  • Avoid breakdowns / unscheduled downtimes
  • Reduce energy consumption
  • Increase equipment lifespan

A structured water device is a highly cost-effective solution which will boost the economic efficiency of your chiller system.
