Adiabitic Cooling Maintenance

For adiabatic fresh air cooling systems, not so common in the UK but probably more common in the drier US climates, anybody know what are the suggested methods of water treatment and descaling?

The word [Adiabatic] means a phase change without adding heat or losing heat. What is an "adiabatic cooling system" that doesn't add or move heat? I've never heard of such an animal. Educate me Marc O'Brien.

what I found effective is to have a small percentage of bleed water. If ALL the source water is evaporated, then ALL the minerals are left behind and build up in concentration until you clean it out. If you bleed off a percentage of the circulating water and dispose of it, then the mineral level will establish an equalibrium and be flushed out via the bleed water. It still needs to be cleaned out but not as often.
