We were asked: “Why is it important to address cooling tower corrosion?” Below are 3 very good reasons:
- Corrosion interferes with water treatment programs and mechanical maintenance.
- Where there is corrosion, Legionella bacteria is likely to be present. Increased levels of Legionella bacteria compromise risk management, safety and compliance.
- Once a basin is corroded, the process can accelerate quickly. Without effective intervention, large sections, or the whole tower may need to be replaced at significant cost.
RepelCoat is a protective coating system that eliminates corrosion. It is a complete corrosion repair and restoration service for cooling towers, fan shafts, pipework, tanks and vessels.
The cooling tower environment poses exceptional challenges to steel materials.
Cooling tower corrosion may not be evident outside, but inside can be a different story.
Over time, steel must withstand the natural corrosive effects of water, constant aeration, bacteria and a swathe of chemical agents. The RepelCoat system eradicates corrosion, by forming a hard-wearing protective barrier that bonds with steel and repels corrosive elements. Surface preparation is combined with advanced epoxy technologies to protect steel in very harsh environments.
