Press Release Summary:
Cooling Water Isolation Skids allow use of high solids or hard water supplies for cooling process line or battery of sample coolers. They isolate raw water from process or coolers through use of intermediate plate heat exchanger. Units are suitable for industries such as power plants, pulp-and-paper facilities, and others that sample process or cycle frequently, but which are water-intensive and do not have sufficient additional water to be used as coolant.

New Cooling Water Isolation Skids (CWIS)
FROM WATERS EQUIPMENT CO. ALLOW USE OF EXISTING HEAVY-SOLID OR HARD WATER FOR COOLING PROCESS SAMPLES
Lansdale, PA, March 2003 - Waters Equipment Company has introduced the Cooling Water Isolation Skid (CWIS) as an economical, practical means of maintaining on-line sample temperature where abundant, cool surface water sources exist (i.e. river, lake or dam). Cooling Water Isolation Skids are designed to allow the use of high solids or hard water supplies for cooling a process line or battery of sample coolers without concern that the solids in the raw water supply will precipitate or plate out in the process or shell of the coolers. The CWIS isolates the raw water from the process or coolers through the use of an intermediate plate heat exchanger.
The CWIS is ideal for use in industries such as power plants, pulp-and-paper facilities and others that sample the process or cycle frequently, but which are "water-intensive" and do not have sufficient additional water available to be used as coolant. Since many of these process streams are in hot liquid or vaporous states, making them difficult, if not impossible, to sample "as is", use of a CWIS ensures instrument accuracy by providing a relative constant temperature source of coolant even if the raw water supply temperature changes seasonally.
Cooling on-line samples with a CWIS is much more economical than utilizing an air-condensing chiller or a cooling tower. Energy consumption is limited to the power used by the recirculation pump (normally 5 HP or less) and the footprint is small relative to that of a large chiller or small cooling tower. Systems with redundant pumps and exchangers are also available.
