A large Hospital in Wisconsin had a significant dirt problem in their closed loop chilled water system. This dirt loading increased their energy costs as they had to run excessively low evaporator temperatures to maintain loop setpoint temperatures. Also, they were spending a fortune on chiller tube bundle cleaning to remove all this dirt – not to mention equipment downtime.
They purchased and installed a LAKOS Separator to save energy and reduce maintenance. Within a short time, the LAKOS Separator removed majority of dirt from their closed loop chilled water system and cut their chiller tube bundle cleaning to once a year – reducing energy costs, reducing maintenance, and extending equipment runtime.
