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 the 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.
