Cooling towers play an important part in many industrial processes. If these cooling towers no longer maintain their cooling capacity, this obviously has far-reaching consequences for your production process. A reduction of the cooling capacity often has the same cause: a soiled cooling tower.

The importance of cooling tower maintenance

A soiled cooling tower is nonetheless very simple to avoid: by regular, preferably annual, preventive maintenance. Regular maintenance of your cooling tower indeed ensures that:

  • The operating reliability of your cooling tower remains optimal
  • Your cooling tower continues to operate as it should
  • Your cooling tower retains its cooling capacity
  • The risk of Legionella’s disease is minimised
  • The working life of your cooling tower is extended (so you do not have to replace your cooling tower so soon)
  • Unnecessarily premature wear of your cooling tower is avoided

It is obviously best to have maintenance carried out by specialised technicians with the use of parts suitable for the cooling tower and the cooling process. These do not have to be original parts from the cooling tower manufacturer by definition. High quality replacement parts provide just as good – and sometimes even better – performance than the original parts.
