Global Cooling Tower Chemicals Market Introduction
Cooling tower chemicals are used to treat cooling towers and prevent scaling, corrosion and algae growth. These chemicals are used for scale inhibition, oxygen scavenging and corrosion inhibition and they are also used as biocides. Chemicals such as sulphite, DEHA, carbohydrazide and tannin are used as oxygen scavengers and some of the conventional scale inhibitors include polymaleic anhydrides, acrylates, polyacrylates, sulfonates and organo-phosphonates. In recent years, di-carboxylic acid, amine-based monomer and tri-carboxylic acid are being used for this purpose. The selection of cooling tower chemicals is done on the basis of process parameters such as operating temperature, pressure, water source, process water content and many others.
