Prediction and Monitoring of Fouling in Recirculating Cooling Water System Heat Exchangers
By Douglas B. DeWitt-Dick and Edward S. Beardwood
Fouling on the recirculating cooling waterside of heat exchangers costs industry millions of dollars in lost opportunity each year. This fouling reduces heat transfer, promotes under-deposit corrosion, increases pumping costs, and disrupts the hydraulic balance in the system. Therefore, the efficient transfer of heat from the process side of a heat exchanger to the cooling media side is critical to cost-effective operation of that process.
