Cooling Tower Refurbishment ProductsPosted on July 5, 2011
As time progresses and use continues on a regular basis, the need for refurbishment work on your cooling tower is almost a certainty. The most common problem is the deterioration of the internal surfacing as the coating used to protect it reaches the end of its lifespan. When this occurs, it is vital that you call in our professional team here at COVAC to conduct effective cooling tower refurbishment to restore it to a superior condition.
The previous coating used is likely to have come to the end of its lifespan due to sub-film corrosion, low film build, poor chemical resistance and general deterioration so needs to be removed fully and replaced as quickly as possible. If left without action, there is an increased possibility that the problem will steadily worsen and the water stored within your tower will become contaminated.
Fortunately at COVAC we have the solution to this problem thanks to the innovative 3M™ Scotchkote™ Urethane Coating 165PW which is known for its economic, environmental and technical benefits for all types of cooling tower.
On introducing the new coating, it will resist the growth of all forms of bacteria including Legionella, providing assurance that the water within the tank has a significantly reduced risk of contamination. Its easy clean, ceramic like finish also makes it far easier to clean and maintain in comparison to its traditional counterparts, so you can keep the cooling tower in a much better condition than you may have previously been able to.
The coating has excellent adhesive properties to steel and can be applied either through a brush or roller, or by using specially designed spray equipment. The speed of applying the coating ensures that downtime is kept to a minimum and once introduced, it will provide long lasting performance without the need for excessive maintenance work.
If your cooling tower is not performing to the standard which you expect, it could be due to a need for cooling tower refurbishment. If this is the case, you can rely on us at COVAC to use only the highest quality products to restore your tower to a superior condition and ensure it is fully functional once more.
