FlowMatrix carry out repairs and rebuilding of cooling towers, so best we explain the difference.
Repair, Rebuild and Servicing
A repair is when a cooling tower part or multiple parts are damaged, worn out, scaled, corroded, have failed, or just not working correctly.
A fan has broken, a motor has failed, fill pack is brittle or scaled, the drift eliminators are faulty, the water nozzles are not working correctly, the water splash louvers are not stopping water loss, the basin is overflowing, the access hatches are leaking, the steel is corroded, the fiberglass is cracked, legs or seams are leaking, strainer is corroded, plumbing lines are broken.
A cooling tower rebuild is where a client wants to upgrade the entire cooling tower to a modern standard and to restore the condition of the materials of construction to as new.
Rebuilding a cooling tower can provide a client with huge cost savings in comparison to replacing it with a new unit. Rebuilding the cooling tower cuts out the need to crane out the old unit and crane in a new cooling tower. There is generally no need to change the plumbing, ducting, platforms, electrical connection, filtration, and chemical dosing systems. A cooling tower rebuild can be half the price of a replacement and yet it gives you another 10 to 20 years of service life.
FlowMatrix offer complete rebuilds with a modern upgrade to get all the components modular, and modern parts that increase cooling performance, allow easy ongoing maintenance, and give you a reduced Legionnaires Disease risk.
A rebuild could include installing a modern fan & motor, replacing the fill pack with high cooling performance modular blocks, replacing the drift eliminators with high performance drift reduction parts, coating steel and fiberglass casing / basins, inside & out, and installing water splash louvers that also block out sunlight.
Inspection, detailed parts and labour quotation, a scope of work, timeline, and you can compare our price against the replacement, which FlowMatrix offer as well.

Prevention is better than cure
We would certainly rather you didn’t have to experience unplanned cooling tower breakdown and downtime. This costs industry money in lost production and commercial city building experience the full lost of the air-conditioning system when a cooling tower fails.
In today’s world after COVID occurred we are now experiencing very long waiting times for parts and getting a contractor out to repair something at short notice is very difficult. Some cooling tower breakdowns can leave you waiting for many weeks.
We offer scheduled maintenance inspections to ensure that all systems and components of your cooling towers are operating at peak efficiency. We also record a list of the critical parts so that we can act to repair as quickly as possible.
