How to Develop a First-Rate Cooling Water Treatment Program

Webinar On-Demand
Provided by Process Cooling
Presented by Paul R. Puckorius

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe how to develop a cooling water treatment program for process cooling equipment.
  2. Discuss how to start up a cooling system, whether it is a new system startup or a spring opening after a period of dormancy.
  3. Summarize how to monitor for bacterial levels for biological control and Legionella.
  4. Predict the future of cooling water treatment programs and whether nonchemical water treatment be a part of them.

Whether you are implementing a new water cooling system or starting up a system closed last fall, proper water treatment can help you bring the system online while avoiding problems with scale, corrosion and microbiological growth and Legionella.

The warmer temperatures of spring and summer arriving mean that shuttered process cooling equipment such as open-loop water cooling systems, cooling towers and evaporative coolers need to be brought online to maintain process temperature control.

During this webinar, you will learn:

  • How to develop a cooling water treatment program for process cooling equipment
  • How to start up your cooling systems, whether it is a new system startup or a spring opening after a period of dormancy
  • How to monitor for bacterial levels for biological control and Legionella. Learn if you are doing it wrong—and how to do it right. (Hint: you should be sampling the biofilm.)
  • What is the future of cooling water treatment programs? Can nonchemical water treatment be a part of them?

Paul R. Puckorius was the president and CEO of Puckorius & Associates Inc., an independent water treatment consulting firm. He passed away in 2019. With more than 50 years’ experience in cooling water, boiler water and reuse water technology, Paul specialized in corrosion, scale and microbiological problem solving, treatment selection and system startups. He had extensive knowledge and expertise relative to Legionnaires’ disease relating to investigations and Legionella control in cooling and potable water systems. A former columnist of Process Cooling magazine, Paul was internationally known for his work in problem solving, development of an effective scale prediction method, work on water reuse and Legionnaires’ disease investigations.
