AWT: Advanced Oxidation Process for Cooling Towers
AOP oxidizes minerals and contaminants in cooling-tower water photochemically, killing bacteria and breaking down calcium buildup to mitigate scaling. Researchers from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory found that the AOP technology met GSA water standards, significantly decreased condenser tube fouling, reduced water use and had a positive ROI.
