Remote Flote

 

 HOW TO PREVENT WASTING WATER

IN COOLING TOWERS

 


ONE OF THE LARGEST COMMERCIAL WATER WASTERS IS THE FLOAT BALL ASSEMBLY FOR THE MAKE-UP ON ALL COOLING TOWERS AND EVAPORATIVE CONDENSERS.

THIS IS A DEVICE SIMILAR TO THE FLOAT IN AN ORDINARY TOILET TANK, HOWEVER THE COMMERCIAL FLOAT IS INSIDE THE TOWER, WHERE IT IS SUBJECT TO HEAVY WATER FLOW AND AIR TURBULENCE. THE BALL IS IN CONSTANT MOTION DUE TO THE FORCES AND IS UNABLE TO CONTROL WATER LEVEL. CONSEQUENTLY THE SUMP IS OVER-FILLED AND THE EXCESS WATER GOES OUT THE OVERFLOW AND INTO THE SEWER.

THESE FLOAT ASSEMBLIES ARE ALSO SUBJECT TO SCALING, WHICH PREVENTS PROPER ADJUSTMENT AND A POSITIVE SHUTOFF. THEY ARE ALSO OUT OF SIGHT AND OVER LOOKED

THE "REMOTE-FLOTE" ASSEMBLY IS MOUNTED OUTSIDE OF THE TOWER AND THEREFORE IS NOT EFFECTED BY THESE ADVERSE CONDITIONS. IT IS ABLE TO MAINTAIN A CONSTANT WATER LEVEL, WITH A POSITIVE ON-OFF ACTION. IT IS ALSO EASY TO MONITOR.

WATER LOSS DUE TO IMPROPER FLOAT CONTROL ADDS UP TO MILLIONS OF GALLONS OF WATER WASTED EACH YEAR. THIS WATER LOSS ALSO INCREASES THE NEED FOR ADDITIONAL WATER TREATMENT CHEMICALS.
