Cooling Tower Maintenance For Your Business
If you own a large business with a cooling tower you know, it needs to be maintained regularly, especially if you are a hospital or school. Having a cooling tower break at your hospital would cause major issues and require a fast repair. An outbreak of Legionnaire’s Disease may be worse.
Save money and improve operating efficiency by refurbishing your cooling tower.
It is generally accepted that the lifespan of an industrial cooling tower is between 15 and 25 years. However, with proper cooling tower repair or maintenance, the initial life of the tower can be extended. Both the Cooling Tower Institute and the American Association of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) recommend placing cooling towers under an annual proactive maintenance program that includes:
- Pressure washing exterior and fill, cleaning and treating with a sanitizing agent.
- Repair/coat areas as needed.
- Lubricate fans and motor.
- Maintain biocidal treatment.
- Change belts and oil. Our experience includes changing fill in many types of towers.
- Additionally refurbishment includes cleaning the tower interior and sandblasting and grinding to remove rust.
Unfortunately, eventually structural components will begin to rust and fill will become brittle, negatively affecting the operation of the tower but is not always necessary to replace a failing tower with a new tower. Older towers can be refurbished at a fraction of the cost of replacement. We can also descale heavily scaled towers using a proprietary chemical treatment. Descaling results in increased heat exchange, resulting in lower operating costs. As with cooling towers, chillers loose efficiency over time. PROAC Corporation also has extensive experience refurbishing chillers. Our service includes blasting tube sheets to near white metal, applying a durable machinable silicon steel alloy with reactive polymers and oligomers to corroded tube sheets to restore a suitable profile to improve the efficiency of fluid handling equipment and to protect metals from erosion/corrosion. PROAC Corporation has been performing preventive maintenance on cooling towers since our inception in 1998. PROAC Corporation is a leader in cooling tower maintenance and repair. Our experience includes changing fill in many types of towers. Additionally, refurbishment includes cleaning the tower interior and sandblasting and grinding to remove rust. We use state of the art epoxy coatings on abraded metal parts and we utilize a flexible epoxy caulk to seal seams and prevent leakage. From our proactive cooling tower maintenance program to our complete tower refurbishment services, we can extend the life of your towers at a fraction of the cost of a new tower. Please contact us regarding our cooling tower maintenance and refurbishment services.
By scheduling regular maintenance and checkups for your cooling tower, you can prevent your commercial cooling tower from breaking and stay ahead of repairs. The cost of replacing an industrial cooling tower is astronomical; make sure you make yours last by getting your cooling tower serviced regularly.
Cleaning Your Cooling Tower
Preventative maintenance is a valuable aspect of the services we provide, and cleaning your cooling tower is part of the inspection process.
