Math Captcha

With an advanced array of technologies to address specific cooling water issues, Dow works with your service provider to deliver solutions that help prevent problems, protect assets, and improve efficiencies throughout the cooling water process.

Make-up Water Treatment

THE CHALLENGE

Cooling water systems need to replace water loss from drift, evaporation and blowdown. Depending on region, water source and cooling tower type, a variety of technologies may be required to treat makeup water before it enters the cooling tower system.

THE SOLUTION

Dow can work with your service provider to help you reduce corrosion, scale, biofouling and other make-up water problems, with technologies that include microbial control, antiscalants, particle filtration, ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis and nanofiltration.

THE PRODUCTS

  • TEQUATIC™ PLUS Particle Filtration
  • DOW IntegraFlux™ UF Modules and DOW IntegraPac™ Skids
  • DOW FILMTEC™ RO Elements
  • AQUCAR™ and KATHON™ Microbiocides
  • ACUMER™ Antiscalants

System Water

THE CHALLENGE

Cooling tower systems operate under closed or open conditions, with each system facing issues due to changes in water quality, process leaks, heat loads etc. These variables present major challenges in maintaining consistent system performance.

THE SOLUTION

Dow can help you reduce corrosion, scale and biofouling, despite changing system conditions. Working with your service provider, we can provide the optimal mix of technologies, including microbial control and antiscalants.

THE PRODUCTS

  • AQUCAR™ Microbiocides
  • KATHON™ Microbiocides
  • ROCIMA™ Microbiocides
  • ACUMER™ Antiscalants

Blowdown Treatment

THE CHALLENGE

Because cooling tower blowdown is too dirty to be reused without treatment, it is typically sent directly to the plant’s wastewater treatment plant. This imposes a hydraulic load on the wastewater treatment system. More importantly, a tremendous amount of relatively clean water is wasted, adding significant cost and compliance complexity.

THE SOLUTION

Dow experts work with your service provider to deliver the optimal solution for your needs, using robust, reliable, fouling-resistant, filtration and purification technologies to recover and return up to 90% of blowdown water for makeup.
