Cooling Tower Coating

Cooling Tower Coating to Enhance its Performance

Safeguard your business’ smooth operations by protecting your units from long-term corrosion.

Over time, the steel in cooling towers takes a beating from water, constant aeration, bacteria and a swathe of chemical agents.

FlowMatrix can preserve your cooling tower with our unique RepelCoat system, shielding it from harsh chemicals and elements, and dramatically extending its life.

Advanced Protection. Advanced Technology

FlowMatrix’s RepelCoat system protects against corrosion by forming a hard-wearing barrier that bonds with steel and repels corrosive elements. RepelCoat protects the interior and exterior of your cooling tower, as well as pipework, vessels and concrete bases.

The importance of preventing corrosion

  • Corrosion interferes with water treatment programs and mechanical maintenance.
  • Where there’s 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 effectively protects against corrosion and is suitable for all steel cooling towers, including Aquacool, BAC (Baltimore Air Coil), Coolmaster, Evapco, F Muller, Fibreflow, Fibre Tech, Gatorade, Hamon, Hydrothermal, Lakeside, Linear, Marley, Muller and Radic.
