Cooling water is a vital utility for large air-conditioning systems. Use of good quality water or proper water treatment can cut your water, energy, and maintenance costs substantially. The savings are associated with the prevention or removal of scale build up on heat exchange surfaces where even a thin film of 1/32" or 0.8mm can increase the energy consumption by nearly 10%. Perhaps most important of all, scale prevention can save you the cost of fixing or replacing equipment that's been damaged by inadequate water treatment - including the downtime and lost revenue usually associated with solving such problems.

This 5- hour course provides an overview of the waterside problems specific to HVAC systems. The course briefly discusses how energy is dissipated from open re-circulation systems and how effective implementation and tight monitoring of the water treatment programs can reduce energy losses.

The course is intended primarily for engineers, HVAC designers, contractors, facility managers, and O&M personnel who are responsible for efficient operation and design of HVAC systems. It is assumed that all readers know the basic functioning of air-conditioning systems.
