Save Money Managing Cooling Tower Water Flow

We have encouraged a number of facilities to let us examine the flow rates on their cooling towers units. This way we can see if we can improve overall efficiency. Fortunately and unfortunately for facilities, we have a high success rate at finding issues. We often find some zones are overflowing, some zones are under flowing and air side velocities are all out-of-whack.
