GE Unveils ‘Truesense’ Platform For Cooling Water Systems
GE has introduced a new technology platform called TrueSense that the company says increases water savings in the monitoring and control of cooling water systems, which are used in heavy manufacturing industries and large commercial and institutional facilities to cool production equipment and for air conditioning.
The company says that in a moderately sized industrial cooling tower, a system running under optimal conditions could save nearly $400,000 per year in fresh water acquisition costs alone.
The product integrates three functionalities into one platform: direct online monitoring of water chemistries; personal instrumentation that GE says cuts offline testing time; and a data analysis and display capability that provides system status.
Decisions about how to operate a cooling system from a water treatment perspective impact total operational costs related to fresh water consumption, energy consumption, cooling tower treatment chemicals and wastewater discharge.
