FlowMatrix was recently asked to investigate this cooling tower in Sydney. It wasn’t performing correctly and had regular High Colony Counts (HCC) and positive #Legionella results.
We found the fill pack totally blocked with dirt and debris, water wasn’t flowing through it correctly. In fact, the fill pack had become so heavy it was sagging and had broken the supports.
We removed the old faulty fill and installed new modern PVC modular block fill pack, which can be easily removed and cleaned when required.
RESULT: Cooling performance has been restored. Chemicals can also contact all fill surfaces to control Legionella bacteria.
