Evaluate potential water sources, including stored rainwater, for use with evaporative condensers. Systematically test influential water quality parameters (calcium, magnesium, alkalinity, pH, and hardness) on the formation of scale in bench-scale evaporative condensers. Construct and test a model to determine an optimized bleed rate to minimize scale creation based on water source and its composition. Complete a bench-scale test using rainwater in an evaporative condenser to evaluate bacterial growth and corrosion.
