Calculate cost savings, payback, and return on investment when adding filtration to a cooling tower or chiller. Real dollar expenses are tracked and energy usage and savings factored in as well. This is a great tool to help you make the decision whether to add filtration and justify that decision with hard dollar costs.
This Microsoft Excel-based tool does NOT consider all the ADDITIONAL "soft cost" and non-monetary advantages of cooling tower filtration, which includes:
- Being GREEN, and improving sustainability
- Reduced risk of employee injury due to elimination of slippery and potentially dangerous manual basin cleaning
- Legionella prevention and Legionnaire's Disease, which are at lower risk with centrifugal-separator based filtration.
- Cost savings of reduced chemical treatment expenses, since proper filtration will allow chemicals to be utilized more efficiently, thus requiring fewer chemicals.
This calculator spreadesheet is a step by step, easy fill-in-the-blank tool for the hvac professional. You will need to know the energy cost in dollars per kilowatt hour at your location.
