Cooling Tower Chill Water Tests

Maintaining the proper chill water additives keeps the pH and reserve alkalinity at a proper level to prevent micro-organisms from growing that can cause corrosion, reduce heat exchange efficiency and reduce water flow.

Spectrochemical analysis provides additive and corrosion element levels. Maintaining the proper freeze point reduces tube freeze up and breakage.
