Scaling UP! H2O

108 Pinks and Blues: Cooling Tower Feed

I hope you had a great time celebrating industrial water week.  I also hope part of your celebration included listening to an episode of Scaling UP! H2O each and every day last week.  The next Industrial Water Week is October 5th, 2020.  So, start your celebration planning early to beat the rush! 

You have heard me ask the Scaling UP! Nation! For help in topics for this show.  Today I am going to answer one of those questions from one of our Nation! Members.  Jinapat wants to know what the different ways are to feed inhibitor on a cooling tower controller 

Thank you Pat! 

So, today’s episode is all about Pat’s question.  Join me (and Pat) as we learn about all the different feed options for putting inhibitor into a cooling tower (I even though a bit extra in there too, biocide feed.) 

Do you have a question you want me to answer on Scaling UP! H2O?  Simply click on the “Leave Voicemail” button on the left side of the our homepage, or go the the show ideas page.
