The cooling tower at one of Downtown Chicago’s luxury hotels was experiencing reduced airflow due to scale accumulation on the exterior surfaces of the tower fill. In addition to the reduced tower performance, the visible scale accumulation was aesthetically displeasing to the tower maintenance personnel.
RYDALL CC approach
5 gallons diluted (2:1) and foamed onto the exterior of the tower fill for approximately 20 minutes and rinsed off with water.
Overall cleaning time was 1 hour!
RYDALL CC results
- Most of the scaling was dissolved and resulted in immediate airflow and improved aesthetics.
- Customer scheduled a comprehensive cleaning utilizing our RYDLYME biodegradable descaler to remove scale from the tower interior and RYDALL CC to return the exterior surfaces to like new condition!
