┬áThis County Courthouse has two 500 ton Marley cooling towers for a total of 1000 tons of cooling. The building’s previous cooling tower water treatment program maintained 2 cycles of concentration, or 50% water waste.

Over these 12 years of operation, this property decided to use eddy current testing to test for corrosion in the system. Many tests over this time period came up with the same excellent results.

In the twelve years since the Terlyn System was installed, the cooling towers at the Pinellas County Courthouse have conserved 38,700,083 gallons of water. This dramatic reduction in water consumption reduced their water bills by a total of $448,921.

The savings graph below represents the total cooling tower water usage previous to installing the Terlyn Program in 1999. Each consecutive year on the Terlyn Conservation Program shows the actual water usage, as well as what the water usage would have been had the system remained at two cycles of concentration (represented by the lightly shaded portion on the right side of the bars).
