How to get the best performance from your cooling tower
How to get the best performance from your cooling tower?
Since the cooling performance will be affected by the
volume of the circulating water, be sure to maintain the
regulation water flow at all times.
Keep the interior of the tower always clean and take
care that no scale or moss grows.
When the level of the water in the water
basin drops, air is sucked in and “cavitation” may develop;
therefore, it is necessary to keep the water at the proper level at all times.
The sprinkler pipe must be clean without blockage.
See here for more information.
No coating is needed for the tower casing as
it is made of F.R.P. If it becomes soiled, wipe it
with soap or a water-soaked piece of cloth
and then wash it thoroughly with water.
As dust and dirt are liable to get into the
water basin, open the drain at the bottom
of the drop-in tank from time to time and
wash it clean. This applies also to the water
basin in particular, as sediments are liable to
accumulate near the outlet, so keep the tank clean
so that the strainer mesh will not be clogged.
No special care is needed if the control of the quality of water is adequate
Watch the surface of the blades carefully to see that no
damage develops and make sure that proper space is
maintained between the internal wall of tower
casing and the tip of blades.
If needed to periodically recoat the metal parts as they
are subject to rusting.
