Cooling Water Monitoring
The function of the Cooling Water Monitoring system is to remove heat from processes or equipment via a single or series of heat exchangers. Water is the primary cooling fluid.
Often these are closed loop systems and, consequently are neglected when monitoring. However, infrequent testing and maintenance can have catastrophic effects on the machinery they are cooling, as well as if something changes within the setup, such as pressure or oil leaks.
Monitoring for flow, temperature, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, and, in some cases, pH helps to reduce this risk.
