My Cooling Tower Encounter...

I've heard about cooling tower when i was doing my chemical engineering degree long before. That time, i hardly know what exactly a cooling tower is. Though the principal of cooling tower is mention inside all unit operation book, i did not really look at it. I did not realise how important a cooling tower is until i work as a process engineer in a plant.

That time, then i realised how serius a cooling tower is for a any plant. My first learning point about the cooling tower is not about the cooling tower. It is rather about the water treatment chemicals of the cooling tower. Later on, i learn more and more...and it's not just about providing enough cool water to the plant, but more than that. I was given the responsibility to handle and take care of the cooling tower. Well, I'm not really good at it, but i did get a lot of help from people around me who have been handling the cooling tower and also other imperative aspects of the plant.

I did work together with a colleague of mine to set up a sand filter for a cooling tower. Not, only that, the cooling tower that i took care was having a lot of water quality problem. So, it took me several months to study and detect to eliminate the problems. Hopefully the problem is no longer there now....Also, the other maintenance part of the cooling tower....Oh....that's a lot to talk about a single simple cooling tower....

I'll share some experience of handling the cooling tower. This is good especially for chemical engineering student and the one who are preparing themself to work. You can learn and know better about what a cooling tower is all about. I hope my post, any articles posted, any links regarding the cooling tower can provide better comprehension for you....
