In collaboration with Fehr Solutions, Chicago based company Thermal Chicago recently upgraded their cooling tower treatment process to include a larger MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution chemical generator. Previously, Thermal Chicago had utilized a MIOX Dual SAL 80 system (20 lbs/day FAC) at one of their cooling facilities. To meet the increased demand for chilled water, they have purchased a new state-of-the-art MOX Vault M45 system (45 lbs/day FAC).
Thermal Chicago Corporation owns and operates the world’s largest interconnected district cooling system, currently serving about 100 buildings in downtown Chicago. As a result of proven reliability and long standing track record since 1995, customers in Chicago continue to turn to Thermal Chicago district cooling service for their chilled water needs for air-conditioning in condominiums, commercial and industrial facilities.
General Motors (GM) engine manufacturing plant in Toluca, Mexico was looking for environmentally friendly technologies that promote economic growth while raising technology standards. Through MIOX Mexico distributor Medición y Control para Aguas de América (MECOPAA), FATA Automation and Aluminum procured 5 RIO Zunis for General Motors. Each of the MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution chemistry generators will be used for cooling tower water treatment at the plant. The installation of the MIOX equipment is part of GM’s investment in the Toluca motor plant to build small, fuel-efficient engines for the NAFTA and Latin American automotive market.
Increasing Power Plant Output Using a New Methodology for Cooling Loop Maintenance
Tom Muilenberg, MIOX Director of Commercial Operations and Cem Candir, MIOX VP of Sales & Marketing will present the technical paper “How Stripping Biofilm from the Cooling Water Loop Impacts Power Plant Production Output” at the Cooling Tower Institute (CTI) Conference in Corpus Christi, TX on Monday, February 4, 2013.
MIOX presents a cost effective and environmentally friendly methodology to biofilm control within the cooling water loop. This proven approach utilizes MIOX patented technology and Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) chemistry for improved heat exchange efficiency, resulting in a significant increase in power plant production output.
