Almost all process cooling systems involve water, which over time accumulates dust, sand, pollen, algae, and pipe scale particles that originate from cooling towers and makeup water. In extreme cases, particle buildup clogs entire systems, requiring shutdowns, expensive maintenance, repair, or replacement. A buildup of solids no thicker than a human hair inside piping can reduce heat transfer by up to 30%, drastically reducing efficiency and increasing energy consumption. Modernizing your cooling system with a self-cleaning filter will save thousands of dollars per year in energy costs. Forsta side stream filters and full flow cooling tower filterskeep water clean, protecting heat exchangers, chillers, condensers, spray nozzles and pumps all while significantly reducing energy consumption.



Industrial cooling towers use water to remove heat from a variety of sources such as machinery or heated process material. The principal use of large, industrial cooling towers is to remove the heat absorbed in the circulating cooling water systems used in power plants, petroleum refineries, food processing plants, and in other industrial facilities.

A Biomicrobe cooling tower filter can be integrated at any point within an industrial process cooling system. High pressure at the discharge of a main pump often provides an ideal environment and location for installation.

A single cooling tower filter will flow anywhere from 15 to 8,000 gpm. Where a higher flow rate is required, multiple units installed in parallel provide solutions for nearly limitless flow.



An HVAC cooling tower expels heat from a chiller. Large buildings such as convention centers, hospitals, and universities will frequently use cooling towers as part of their heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning systems.

Biomicrobe cooling tower filters have a compact design allowing for easy installation in existing pipelines. The automatic cleaning cycle of a Biomicrobe cooling tower filter eliminates the need for routine maintenance and contributes to overall system automation.

Made entirely from sustainable materials, a Biomicrobe cooling tower filtration system will reduce water use and improve energy efficiency. Biomicrobe cooling tower filters used in new construction or to improve old systems will help projects meet a variety of important environmental and sustainability goals
