Cooling Tower Water Treatment from Experienced Experts Serving the Tampa Bay Area and Nearby Regions in Florida
Having a proper cooling tower water treatment program in place is essential for all commercial properties. Typically, a commercial air conditioning system will circulate water to remove heat from refrigerant, enabling the system to provide cool air. However, because the water is constantly changing due to evaporation loss, minerals can accumulate, resulting in scale, corrosion, and blockages in the system’s heat exchangers and piping. This is especially true of facilities in the Tampa Bay area, where the water supply is rife with impurities and a high strain is placed on AC systems throughout the year. Without treatment, it is only a matter of time before the AC system stops working properly.

What Are Cooling Towers and How Do They Work?
Cooling towers on Tampa Bay area facilities utilize the principles of heat exchange to reduce the temperature of water that circulates through an industrial system. Water that enters the cooling tower is heated due to industrial processes. The system then allows the water to come into contact with air, which results in small amounts of evaporation, thereby reducing the temperature. This water can then be redirected to equipment, such as industrial cooling systems.
Why Do Cooling Towers Require Water Treatment?
Cooling towers cause water evaporation by design. As stated above, the cycle of replacing water that is lost during this process can result in scale, corrosion, and blockages. But how exactly does this happen? Primarily, it is due to the quality of the water being fed into the system. Impurities, such as magnesium and calcium, which are abundant in the Tampa-area’s water supply, can collect in piping and reduce its volume. Aside from the corrosion that these impurities can cause over time, narrowed piping can increase the pressure within a system, resulting in degraded performance and, eventually, equipment damage.
A cooling tower water treatment system is a set of technologies that are used to address problematic impurities in your water supply and control levels of alkalinity, chlorides, sulfates, silica, iron, organic matter, dissolved solids, and much more. However, proper treatment varies widely depending on a variety of factors, including:
- The type of cooling tower your facility uses
- The quality of the water circulating through your system
- Local regulations that may impact treatment method and discharge
R2J performs extensive testing that enables us to develop a custom industrial water treatment solution, ensuring excellent results. And, having served Tampa-area businesses since 1982, we are deeply informed of all regulations around the proper treatment of cooling towers.
