Project Recap – Recirculated Cooling Water System
Updated: Jun 3, 2019
Mercury Marine, Fond du Lac, WI
A sequenced rebuilt of plant-wide recirculated water cooling system for aluminum die-casting operations, with no disruption to plant production. Improve water quality, while reducing water requirements.
The Rohde team installed new hot and cold wells in the new tunnel, connecting the existing plant to a new addition. In addition to replacing pumps and controls, Rohde replaced and expanded the tunnel’s utility piping. Rohde first moved the cooling towers to a temporary location before placing them in their permanent residence on the adjacent roof.
As a result, water flow rates were reduced, allowing for lower pumping energy costs, in addition to improved water quality, leading to reduced maintenance costs.
