M-044 Cooling Tower Water Treatment

Cooling Tower Water Treatment

The Cooling Tower Water Treatment online PDH course is a part of the Mechanical Engineering category of courses. Cooling water systems remove heat generated from a variety of industrial processes. There are three basic types of cooling water systems: once-through, open recirculating, and closed recirculating cooling water systems. This course provides guidance on water treatment requirements for the most common systems, once-through and open recirculating.

This course provides professional tools that will allow you to address water treatment issues associated with cooling towers in industrial applications.

This course is intended for mechanical engineers and other design and construction professionals wanting an introduction to the technologies, equipment and operational practices for treatment of cooling tower water.
