Scaling UP! H2O

107 Day 3 Of Industrial Water Week (Cooling)

Happy Industrial Water Week everyone! Today, Day 3, of our weeklong holiday is all about Cooling. Yesterday was about boilers. Since we put heat (BTU’s) into something, today we have to cool it down. We are taking BTU’s out of something. In most processes, heat is a byproduct that slows the process down. The more widgets a machine makes, the hotter that machine gets. The hotter the machine gets, the fewer widgets that machine can make. And that’s where we come in.  

Getting heat out of our process and sending it to a place we don’t care about it is key to our job. The less heat we have, the more widgets we can make. That means the widget factory can be more profitable. Our job as an industrial water treater is to make that process as efficient as it possibly can be. After all, the heat transfer medium they are using is the lifeblood of the whole operation.  

As we celebrate Cooling Wednesday, we are back at the AWT conference. Join me as I continue to interview fellow Scaling UP! Nation! Members and take you inside the conference.
