One open cell comfort-cooling tower manufactured by Marley located on the building roof four floors above the ground. The cooling tower system was part of a new construction package and had been in operation for one year with no bleed-off or chemical treatment.
One open cell process-cooling tower manufactured by BAC located on the roof top, two floors above ground level. The cooling tower has a stainless steel basin with iron braces that contact tower water. The tower system is operated on softened city make-up water at 3.5 cycles of concentration. The chemical treatment program consisted of HS-4230 for scale and corrosion and M-30 for biological control. At the customerís request, on-site service was being performed on a weekly basis.
One open cell comfort-cooling tower manufactured by Marley located on the ground approximately 100 yards from an Interstate Highway. Trees surround the cooling tower. The tower is operated on city make-up water at 3.5 cycles of concentration. Water treatment was performed by a local competitor using only one biocide.
A 3000 gallon closed recirculating cooling water loop. The loop water provides direct cooling of cathodes used in the process of coating glass with silver, titanium and zinc.
Two comfort cooling towers manufactured by Evapco and BAC located on an office building rooftop 5 floors above ground level. Both tower systems were operated on city make-up water at 2 to 2.5 cycles of concentrations. These systems were treated with C-740 for scale control, and AA-4015 and ABL-16 for biological control. Both towers sit stagnant before being drained for the winter months.
1800 ton open recirculating cooling water loop featuring an induced draft cooling tower. The tower water provides direct cooling to jacketed steam autoclaves that are used to cure finished windshields.

One two-cell, open-draft comfort-cooling tower located at a major corporate headquarters building. The cooling system capacity is 500 tons with an approximate volume of 4,000 gallons. The cooling tower basin had been coated with Bellzona.
One evaporative condenser type tower manufactured by BAC located on the ground next to the building trash dumpster. The tower system was operated on city make-up water at 3 to 4 cycles of concentration. The water treatment program was inadequate and the tower was poorly maintained.
A 250-ton Trane Chiller with a BAC open cooling tower located in a grated concrete-walled pit adjacent to the parking lot. The cooling tower sits twenty feet below the parking lot and is surrounded by pine trees. The system is operated on city make-up water at 3.5 to 5 cycles of concentration. A local competitive company was treating this system.
