Industrial Technologies

Cooling Towers

  • Eliminate the use of single pass cooling towers where appropriate
  • Maximize cycles of concentration as water quality allows

Leak Detection

  • Identify and fix leaks immediately
  • Install "sub-meters" or localized water meters to monitor for unusual or unnecessary flow

Water Use Surveys

  • Water use in the industrial sector can be very site specific. Utilizing the resources of a water use efficiency specialist to survey a site can be a cost effective way to maximize water and energy efficiency. This often pays for itself in savings within a short period of time.
