Cooling Tower Cleaning and Maintenance
Prevent contaminants and scaling from corroding your systems.
Over weeks and months, nutrients, airborne dirt and debris collect and affix to different components of cooling towers. If not properly maintained, these deposits, along with the scum that accumulates, can cause blockages and corrosion which impairs the operating efficiency. This can lead to significant damage, even possible failure of the system. Additionally, soiled cooling towers decrease the heat exchange efficiency and increase energy costs.
Another critically important reason for proper cleaning and maintenance is to prevent the spread of bacteria including Legionella, known to germinate in cooling towers and other water sources. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) recommends cleaning towers be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected twice a year — before the start of the cooling season and after shutdown in the fall.
Before and after cleaning of:
Cooling tower fan
STC technicians apply manual agitation to soiled fan housings using pressure washing and chemical treatment, where necessary, to prevent growth of microbials and other contaminants.
Cooling tower basin
Dirty, sludge-ridden basins are cleaned using high-volume flushing with proper draining to eliminate any clogging of the overflow drainage pipes.
Cooling tower fill and drift eliminators
STC technicians strategically remove build up on the fill and drift eliminators with power washing and other appropriate methods. Chemical treatment is applied when necessary.
