Chillers And Cooling Towers For Air Conditioning

Chillers and Cooling Towers for Air Conditioning

  • October 16, 2017

Summer heat may have come to an end (in some areas), but air conditioning systems are a necessary need year round for a number of industrial and commercial applications. Unlike the air conditioning unit you’d find at your home, large office building and industrial plants require a much larger scale A/C machine. In many cases, these air circulation and conditioning machines function with heavy duty chillers or cooling towers, and that requires extra care and monitoring to keep them running in good condition.

Application Spotlight: Ozone & Medical

Now that the hole in the ozone layer is starting to heal, (according to a UNEP press release,) this intriguing molecule has dropped out of the headlines. It’s a pity because ozone’s ability to protect us goes beyond blocking solar ultraviolet radiation.

Ozone (O3) is the three-atom form of oxygen. Whereas the two-atom form is found in the air we breathe, ozone_moleculethe third atom creates a molecule that reacts with almost everything it touches. That makes it a powerful disinfectant, able to destroy bacteria and other toxins. It also means it’s unstable, quickly breaking down to breathable O2. As a result, there’s no ozone distribution industry as there is for other gases. Instead it must be generated at the place where it’s needed.
