HVAC Filtration

Cooling Tower Basin Cleaning

Airborne debris and other suspended particles in cooling tower water negatively affect heat transfer efficiency through the creation of deposits, which result in scale, corrosion, fouling, and biological activity. This leads to reduction in heat transfer design efficiencies and an increase in system operating costs.

LAKOS Centrifugal Separators and Filtration Solutions help remove suspended particles from cooling water thus helping maintain design efficiencies and extending the life of cooling towers, heat exchangers, chillers, and evaporative condensers.

Common HVAC Configurations

Basin Sweeping

  • Reduce under deposit corrosion, remove food source for biological activity, extending life of basin.
  • Minimize manual cleaning, maintenance, downtime, and risk of injury
  • HydroBoosters™ sweep cooling tower basin to remove suspended solids at the source
  • Maintain downstream thermal efficiency of heat transfer surfaces
  • Most effective at reducing cooling tower maintenance

Closed Loop

  • Remove solids generated in closed loops (chiller water/ propylene/ ethylene glycol) by using side stream filtration
  • Provides 24/7 filtration with zero system downtime
  • No backwash requirements
  • Zero liquid loss when using a Solids Recovery Vessel (SRV)
  • Direct replacement for side stream bags or spiral wound cartridges
