Drake Mechanical Works On And Installs Cooling Towers!

A cooling Tower uses evaporative cooling; water is pumped up to the top of the tower and trickles back down a fill.  At the top of the tower a large fan pulls air through the fill cooling the water down.  Water runs down the fill and back into the basin where it goes through the hvac system.  Due to this evaporation there is a fresh water makeup line that feeds the cooling tower that goes to a float valve.  As water evaporates the float drops and causes the fresh water to "top" the water level off.  On goes the cycle and this simple process is what makes up a cooling tower.  As we all know when water evaporates it leaves behind the minerals and anything else that was contained in it which leaves deposits on the cooling tower, piping and fill.  Over time this can cause the tower to lose efficiency and not work as well as it should.  Regular maintenance on cooling towers along with chemical treatment are key to having a long life with your investment.

Cooling Tower Chemical Treatment

It is very important that you maintain and treat the water in your cooling tower, as water evaporates it leaves all of the minerals behind in the tower and they stick to everything.  Once you start to have a lot of mineral and hard water deposits build up in your cooling tower you will loose airflow and also have other problems from plugged nozzles etc.  All of these problems cause loss in performance which means you are paying more on your utilities to do the same job.  Annual Maintenance on your cooling tower is also very important to long tower life, from cleaning your cooling tower, checking the belts on the cooling towers fan and motor if applicable, to other maintenance items this should not be skipped or ignored.  It all effects performance along with costing you money on already expensive utilities not to mention that buildup, corrosion and other issues can cause expensive repairs.
