Cooling Tower Cleaning / Inspection
Restore your system’s pipes to a like new condition on the inside. Regular plumbing pipes stay relatively clean on the inside because the water flow helps prevent build up of corrosive minerals and substances. The piping system in a cooling tower, though, often carry steam or mist particularly in a commercial evaporative cooling system. When the water evaporates it leaves behind any minerals or impurities that cannot convert to a gaseous state. These impurities settle to low points in your pipes or cling to the pipe walls in the form of a rocky build up. Basically, miniature stalactites, just like those found in caves, are forming in your pipes. This reduces your system’s efficiency in several ways. Water flow through the pipes is slowed, the thicker pipe walls do not exchange heat as well and this mineral build up can also corrode your pipes. The Energy Options crew can negate this process with a thorough cleaning call.
