Cooling tower water is often contaminated by airborne dust, sand, pollen, algae, and pipe scales.

  • Contaminates circulate through heat exchangers, chillers, and compressors, significantly reducing the system's cooling ability.
  • Dirt particles in the water foul the system by settling on warm surfaces while calcium and magnesium bond elements on the equipment.
  • Scale formation reduces the heat transfer rate and increases the water pressure drop through the heat exchanger, condenser, and pipes.
  • A .002" fouling will increase pumping needs by 20%.

Rain Bird self-cleaning water filters provide the ultimate solution when contaminated HVAC water is a problem. Cooling tower water often has a high content of airborne dust, sand, pollen, algae, and pipe scale. As contaminates circulate through heat exchangers, chillers, and compressors they significantly reduce the system's cooling ability. In addition, scale formation reduces the heat transfer rate and increases the water pressure drop through the heat exchanger, condenser, and pipes.

Rain Bird self-cleaning water filters provide the ultimate solution when this HVAC water is a problem.

  • The filters operate on line pressure alone.
  • The self-cleaning process is triggered by a pressure differential and is accomplished in seconds without interrupting the main flow.
  • The filters are compact in size.
  • ASME code stamp vessels are also available as an option.
