Chilled\LPHW Water Systems

Closed Circuits

Most closed circuits are used to conduct heat either to warm up a process or property or to cool it down such as in refrigeration/air conditioning.

The water in these systems is susceptible to microbiological contamination, scale & corrosion and any one of these can cause efficiency to drop.

When it comes to bacteria, there are some such as Pseudomonas which form a slime which can block heat exchangers. Whilst others, such as Sulphate and Nitrite reducers cause chemical reactions in the water which encourage corrosion.
