RX for Maintenance - Intensive Cooling Towers: Think Plastic to Avoid Throwing Good Money after Bad

Brock Equipment Company puts an end to $10,000/year maintenance costs by replacing a metal-lined tower with an engineered plastic tower.

Metal cooling towers lined with galvanizing or other coatings have been around for along time; in many instances, far too long. Like an aging fighter, decades old metal cooling towers frequently become high-maintenance, while performance drops off sharply. Over time, these towers are increasingly thin-skinned, inefficient, and can cause unscheduled process disruptions. Secondary damage can also be caused by chronic “leakers,” and outdated tower fans and motors often consume more energy than necessary. All of this adds up to a classic “moneypit” for plant maintenance personnel that rely on cooling towers to support key process equipment. In the past, the prevailing cure for a leaking or corroding cooling tower was simple (although not easy). You either repaired it or replaced it. However, repairs such as reskinning or coating tower linings often take weeks and shut down critical processes if maintenance isn’t already scheduled. Welding patches on galvanized linings might work, but typically not for long. Read full article here: ThinkPlasticToAvoidThrowingGoodMoneyAfterBad
