Title: Electrostatic System Effect on a Chiller/Cooling Tower Chemical Program (biological control enhancement)
Instruction on the benefits of removing Suspended Solids from the recirculating water throughout the Open and Closed Loops in Cooing Towers and Chillers
* History of traditional approach to Side Stream Water Filtration
* General approach to the reduction of Suspended Particles in Open and Closed Loops of Cooling Towers and Chillers
* Enhanced Particle Precipatation and reduction of Suspended Particles down to one micron and below
Paul Q. McLaine - President/Founder, ElectroCell Systems, Inc. (co-presenter)
Mr. McLaine has been the owner and operator of PQ Energy Controls, Inc. since 1976. PQ Energy Controls designs, installs, and services building automation systems in large office buildings, educational campuses, and industrial facilities. In 1997 Paul founded ELECTROchem Water Systems, the predecessor to ElectroCell Systems, to offer water quality-improvement systems to pharmaceutical facilities. He has dedicated most of his time to perfecting the ElectroCell system, and addressing and further improving chiller efficiencies in open- and closed-loop HVAC systems. Paul holds two patents on his product, with two additional patents currently pending. Over the past two years he has developed a distributor network and marketed the ElectroCell System nationally. ElectroCell’s goal is to establish a presence in every major U.S. city in hopes of reducing the environmental carbon footprint throughout the United States.
Bruce Ketrick Sr. CWT#155 - CEO, Guardian CSC (co-presenter)
With more than 40 years of experience in the water treatment industry. Mr. Ketrick has worked in water treatment in the areas of: pretreatment systems, boiler water treatment, cooling water treatment, waste water programs, product development, field technical support, and systems training. As a member of The Association of Water Technologies, Mr. Ketrick has served on the Education, Technical, Legislative, and Certification committees, presented technical papers, and written articles for trade magazines. He has been an instructor on water treatment training issues for The Association of Energy Engineers, Association of Water Technologies, Water Quality Association, Pennsylvania Office of Energy, New Jersey Boiler Seal Certification Schools, and The Aesys Boiler Service School. Mr. Ketrick is the 2006 Ray Baum Memorial Award winner “Water Technologist of the Year”.
Electrostatic System Effect on a Chiller/Cooling Tower Chemical Program
(biological control enhancement)
What the impact of removing 99% of suspended solids down to 1 micron utilizing the side-stream particle precipitator that requires no media does to the thermo transfer properties of equipment and how it affects on the enhancement of the chemical program in controlling biologic growth in recirculating chiller/cooling tower open loops.
Both Paul McLaine and Bruce Ketrick have established their individual expertise over a period of forty years each. Their combination of their experience in the Water Treatment and Buildings Automation Industries has earned each one the respect and recogintion for their lifelong achievements. The combination of the knowledge provides a resource of information that would be extremely difficult to duplicate in the Water Treatment and Facility Management of the Cooling Tower/Chiller Operation.
