Reducing Cooling Tower Water Consumption through Advanced Water Treatment Technology


It might cover 71% of the earth, but water is one of our most precious resources. Headlines around the world warn of water shortages, and water demand globally is projected to increase by 55% between 2000 and 2050 [1]. But, one innovative company is working to address a small slice of this concern.

For decades now, evaporative cooling has been the principal means to regulate the temperature of buildings. And with more than 50% of total building water usage dedicated to heat transfer, there are major opportunities for water savings.

Enter EVAPCO, a manufacturing company focused on heat transfer applications and a world leader in designing and manufacturing evaporative cooling products. I spoke with Dustin Cohick, Product Manager at EVAPCO, and Josh Boehner, Marketing Applications Engineer, to learn more about heat transfer and how EVAPCO’s technology can save water. The interview that follows has been edited for clarity and length.
