Accuray Research LLP has released research that predicts that the industrial cooling system market will grow at 5.8 percent worldwide during the next ten years. The value of the segment, the study says, will be about $22.5 billion in 2025.
Drivers of the growth include technical advances, growing needs from nuclear power generation, demand from greener buildings and economic advances in some regions.
Solenis has just released what appears to be a good example of the technical advances referred to in the Accuray report. The ClearPoint Biofilm Detection and Control system, according to the press release, “helps identify and prevent biofilm growth in cooling water systems.”
The release says that the product improves heat transfer performance, lowers water usage and reduces corrosion and equipment damage caused by biofilm fouling. The platform is aimed at high use industries:
xxxSolenis, a global producer of specialty chemicals, developed this novel biofilm treatment program specifically for industrial customers with extensive and complex cooling systems, such as ethanol plants.
The platform “merges equipment, chemistry and service” into a single entity that detects biofilm as it develops and deploys the best combination of Solenis chemistries to combat it.
