Cooling towers are heat-releasing structures used to transfer heat out and quickly cool and condense water that is used in many manufacturing processes. Many companies use cooling towers to keep equipment at a safe temperature. It is common to see cooling towers on top of factory buildings and other large complexes. In some cases, these cooling towers are vital to keeping workers safe as well as those in surrounding areas.
It is very important that cooling towers operate efficiently, but is very difficult for them to do this if they are not cleaned properly.
Issues With Cleaning Cooling Towers
Not every cleaning company can simply come in and clean a cooling tower in the right way. J&M Keystone’s professionals offer superior cleaning service for industrial applications including cooling towers.
The water in a cooling tower is not usually “pure” water. In many cases, the water is full of dissolved minerals in varying degrees. As the mineral content changes due to additions to the water, some of the chemicals may precipitate from the solution and become solids. These solids can quickly clog up the system and cause problems with heat exchangers or other devices that are part of the cooling system.
This means that there are two issues facing a company that is going to attempt to clean cooling towers. First, the technicians performing the cleaning must have an understanding of how to test the water to determine mineral content so that they know exactly how to go about cleaning and what types of substances they may encounter, whether those substances are liquid, solid or gas and the quantity of substances present in the water. Second, these technicians must understand how to remove the minerals or other substances safely from the water. In some cases, there may also be biohazards such as algae in the water that can harm workers as well.
Most cooling towers can be cleaned by filtering the water and treating it with biocides and algaecides. However, in some cases, other measures are necessary. J&M Keystone employs specialists who understand how to identify the presence of minerals and other potentially hazardous substances in cooling towers and how to successfully clean and treat the water in these structures.
Treating the circulating cooling water in large industrial cooling tower systems will minimize scaling and fouling.
The water should be filtered and also be dosed with biocides and algaecides to prevent growths that could interfere with the continuous flow of the water.
