X Systems Cooling Tower Filtration
The X™ Systems for Cooling Tower Filtration are designed to overcome wasted inefficiencies and the high power consumption of typical previous technologies used on cooling towers. The X Systems' propietary enhanced energy conservation package includes a PLC/VFD pump control, as well as Basin-Zone™ control, which allows for smaller pumps to be used on large or even multiple cooling towers. As a part of the energy conservation system, a constant pressure is maintained in the supply lines for most efficient Eductor nozzle performance.
The most unique feature of the X System is its ability to clean large or multiple cooling tower basins with only a small number of Eductor nozzles by grouping them into cleaning “Zones.” The specialized Zone controller that is included with each package controls each Zone by a 24/7/30-day calendar program that can be customized by the end user.
The X Systems have a multitude of features and available options that can be added for a variety of communication and sophisticated functions including:
+ Pump fault alarms + Pump drive protection
+ Motor protection + Automatic system restart
+ Dry pump protection + Low & High pressure detection
+ Impeller anti-jam + Power loss delay timer
+ Flow meter data logging + Digital & Analog inputs/outputs
+ EtherNet/IP + Modbus TCP/IP
+ PROFINET + And More…
+ Modular upgrades + Programmable using USB Drive
+ Wireless communications + Controls up to 16 zones (expandable)
+ Multiple schedules + Various programmable features
The combined features of the X Systems Cooling Tower Filtration skid provides a low cost solution for the removal of particulate from cooling tower basin water. Based on the micron selected (50um standard), the removal of all solids to the specified micron rating, can be achieved in a matter of hours not days. This is especially important to note as, unlike separators, a screen filter's 100% particulate removal efficiency is not affected by the specific gravity of the particulate or by varying flow rates through the screen filter.
When used in conjunction with the VAF “TurbulatorTM” Eductor nozzles, the X System efficiently maintains a clean tower basin by removing all particulate, even as light as algae or as small as silt, without interrupting the facility's processes.
X Systems significantly reduce maintenance costs, energy costs, chemical usage and most important, reduce the consumption of what is quickly becoming our most valuable natural resource: water. Backed by VAF’s decades of filtration experience, the X Cooling Tower Filtration System provides performance and reliability at a cost effective and competitive price.
