Cooling Tower and Dephlegmator (heat exchanger).

Installed Units

HydroFLOW Custom i12".

Current chemical treatment was struggling to keep the scale accumulation under control.


Seven weeks after the installation of HydroFLOW, no new scale formed in the dephlegmator. Existing scale was “softer” and noticeably thinner.  In addition, biofilm on infrastructure surfaces and in the recirculating water significantly decreased.
